    Hey, guys. Last weekend I put a 2" BDS SL (springs and shocks) on my '04 X. It went on fairly easily and I didn't run into any issues, which is amazing considering I have no idea what the hell I'm doing... Gotta learn somehow, right? I've got a 1.25" BL and a 1" MM on there as well. I'm...

    I was thinking about doing RC 2.5 inch springs and then a shock from another brand because I heard the RC shocks ride rough on-road. I also was thinking about getting the BDS 2 inch kit. Either way I want 33 inch tires. Can this be done? Which setup would your recommend? Does anyone have any...

    On my 2003 tj i currently have a basic BDS 3" lift. I'm running stock arms and all that. Im looking to start upgrading but I'm not sure where to start. I was thinking control arms. It is a daily driver that does more offloading on the beach than anything else. Maybe I should start with steering...

    Hey everyone, I’m sorry if this has already been posted, but I looked and couldn’t find anything about my specific question. I bought a 2010 WK back in July and had a 2.5” BDS spacer lift installed shortly thereafter. The shop I had it done at around here is pretty well known in the area for...

    This will be my first build and i have no clue what to expect. I'm going for a medium wheeler and DD. I've done a fair bit of research and have come up with a build sheet that I want some input and knowledge on. If you could leave suggestions and honest experiences on the parts in my build sheet...

  7. YJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    Was gonna wait till I finished everything, but here it is. This is my first Jeep 92 Islander as you can see it has a gangster lean to the passenger side from the body mounts coming through the tub. I drove it like that for a few months then blew up the axle (this is where the fun began)...

    So, I've been running RC springs and shocks for awhile, since i got my rig, and finally called it quits on them after breaking my 4th or 5th spring, honestly i cant remember anymore, and imploding all of my shocks. they are thin soft springs that somehow sill manage to ride poorly and even in...

  10. TJ Wrangler Technical Forum
    So I installed an 8.8 last year in the Jeep and I knew it would make it sit higher in the rear but it's honestly bugging me now... a lot!!! I am contemplating what to do. I really would like to get new springs all the way around and was looking at just purchasing 2" BDS springs for the front...

    Sorry if this has been asked a million times but I just can't seem to come to any better conclusions. I have a 97 TJ sport with a new 8.8 rear end installed and sitting on 31 bf all terrains. I finally got money for the lift, about 1500 hundred from my dad. I'm willing to throw in about 600 so...

    So, I got my 4" BDS lift in today and I was excited to get it put on. I started with the front and managed to finally get the old springs off and started with the new spring install as well as ss braided brake hoses and sway bar disconnects. I got the front springs installed only to find that...

    I have purchased and I am in the middle of installing a BDS 4" lift on my 1979 CJ5. The springs are not labeled as to which is front and which is rear. One set is a little more heavy duty, does this go in the front or the rear? The Heavier Springs are part number 004251 and the lighter...
  15. Jeep CJ Forum
    I have a 1979 CJ5 with sagging stock springs. I need new springs and I have decided I would go ahead and do a BDS lift. My question is: Should I go with the 2.5" or 4" Lift? I know i will spend a little more money with some extra parts for the 4". That is not an issue. I currenly have...

    Hello all, I'm going to install a 3" BDS lift on my Rubicon tomorrow (hopefully) and have a quick question, on the BDS site it says "might require stock skid modification on Rubicon models", I've searched and can't find anything regarding that. I know from speaking with a BDS rep and reading...
