Glide Ride Wrangler YJ Springs
these BDS springs in my 78 CJ-5 to replace a set of
Skyjacker 2.5" springs. I was looking for a little
more lift while keeping the nice ride. The BDS 3.5"
springs seemed to fit what I was looking for. I didn't
think a 4" was necessary and 2.5"'s were not enough.
front springs are 1" longer and are 2.5" wide, opposed to
the CJ 2" front springs. The increased length and
added spring material are supposed to add more flexibility
and better ride.
a CJ is rather normal for the rear springs. The front
requires new shackle mounts and modification to the shackle
mount location. See
3.5" Wrangler Lift Kit Conversion
section for a detailed
height was dramatically improved and the ride quality was
excellent. I seemed to keep the caster on the front
axle good and the Jeep drive straight down the road.
Off-road performance was excellent. The springs
provided excellent flexibility but stayed firm enough to
keep the Jeep from feeling tipsy.
years the Jeep is still on the BDS springs with no problems.
The ride quality and off-road performance has not
diminished. Overall 1-5 rating on these springs 5 for
quality and 5 overall perfromance.
