Thanks for the tip, I'll keep it in mind.

depends on the springs. i had skyjackers as did four other friends and we all loved our 4" springs. i'd do them again probably before a soa. avoid rancho at all costs and i've heard bds are stiff, but havent' ever experienced them myself

Skyjackers are awesome until they sag or break! The company sucks! Once you buy them you are on your own...company will not stand behind them! BDS are great and the company has a no question's asked policy. I agree that Ranch are the worse riding springs out there only second to Rough Country who went under and sold the name. I would not hesitate to buy BDS again!!! Stock length 40 springs are too short for SO!
