Wait on Top Gun or go BDS????????

I've got a 2011 F-250. All i'm going to put is a 4 inch lift. Top Gun is back ordered for a month. I can get BDS now. I'm upgrading the shocks to bilstien with gas reservoir. Need advice.......And the truck will be off road on a daily basis in crawfish ponds.

I've heard a few things about BDS springs end up sagging. Lifetime guarantee though. I know TG has dropped the ball on things in the past. I'll throught Carli out there.

4.5" lift with shocks and springs that are tuned to work with each other. Hands down the best riding system out there.

Top Gun by far. I just installed my TGC 4-link yesterday, extremely impressed. You won't be disappointed.

Which version of the TGC kit are you looking at?

Depending on your budget you may be better off with one of Pure Performance's 4.5" kits. Their new kits have progressive rate coils and new geometry for the 4-link setup. Another great choice would be one of Carli's 4.5" kits.

Here is Pure's new 4.5 X-factor system:

Any reason you are limiting your choices to those two? Of the two listed, I would go with BDS. However, I highly suggest taking a look at Carli and Icon before you pull the trigger.

Carli is a little too high. The shop I want to install it sells BDS

I don't see those kits listed on their site. How much was it going to run with shipping? That will help determine something that would be in a comparable price range.
