Just wanted to know

Has any one ever heard of gdsdieselparts.com. Just wanted to know. They make a spring for the fpr instead of the shim. I think it cost $20.

Ford sells a spring for the California trucks that does the same thing but dropping a BB in behind the spring works just as good. I have the California spring in mine.

GDS has been in business for quite a while. They are nothing special. Use the BB and save the $20 plus freight.

BB is free. It's a no brainer IMO.

I am thinking about going with the regulated return. This will be a better fix I think.

Yes, it is a better fix. However it is $550. For 550 bones, it sure as heck better be better than a BB. The ITP kit is the best around.
