bds vs icon

alright I am going with a 6 inch lift and am trying to figure out which is the better way to go, side note is I already have the bds front springs and track bar drop bracket but which rides better and performs better? if icon front springs are noticeably better i will sell the bds springs for icon.

I suggest going full ICON. We have not found a better riding kit on the market. Their shocks are made and tuned by them, in house. The components are also of the highest quality you will find. You will be very happy with the ICON system, feel free to give us a holler with any questions you might have.
