I've been watching this site for some time now and doing some research on suspension systems. I've seen the different types of suspensions that everyone is running in their signatures. I was just wondering what everyone's take was on their suspensions or if they wished they did a different suspension or different height.
I've been looking at the 8in BDS lift for my 06 F250. I like the four link conversion they use. I'm looking to run 37s or 39s. I'd go with a 6in, but its only another $150 for the 8in. I use the truck for work, but i don't normally have to carry materials around (meaning I'm not too concerned with the bed height). I am partial to BDS because Ive had two different size BDS lifts on my jeep and love the spring rates they use and ride quality of the lifts. Does anyone run a BDS system on their truck?
I drive the truck every day. I hate the stock suspension because of the stiff front springs. Every pothole i hit, i get a little bump steer, and its not too easy to avoid potholes in new england. I had the truck aligned twice by different, very reputable shops and it is as straight as an arrow. I'm looking to put in a better riding suspension but dont want to spend $10k or more for air ride.
...I should also mention that my truck sits very level. There is no rake to the truck and it has been like that since i got it at the dealership. It has the optional 10,000 GVRW springs. Camper/Tow special, i guess. I didn't order it. It was just one of the trucks on the lot.
Any suggestions and comments would be greatly appreciated.
