The tech guy said they have BDS unique valving but it will function almost the same as the IFP and then he said they really are not that different. It was like he was dancing around stating them being the same thing. He seemed more focused or excited that the BDS version has the hardware already installed on the shock unlike the Fox IFP. He said either version should work just fine for my purposes.

So I added the yellow sumosprings and that was a tremendous upgrade to the rear suspension alone. Then I replaced the rear and front rancho crap shocks with the BDS Fox shock. Holy smokes the ride is way improved! My 18 foot enclosed trailer pulls perfectly. The Sumosprings I highly recommend and it so easy to put on, takes maybe 10 to 15 minutes. Before I added the shocks I would of been fine with the sumosprings but the BDS shocks made the ride comfort 100% better. If you have a f250 with the 3 leaf springs I highly recommend the sumosprings.

I have had my BDS Fox shocks on for about a week now. They have helped ride quality for sure. They are what I had hope for in ride. Which is to cut down the harsh bumps, make the feel truck more planted, but still have a firmer side ride. This they do. They will not make it ride like a squishy Cadillac.

Putting them in was a pain the arse. I had to zip tie them down to install. The old jack compression technique does not work well. I will put up a video comparison shortly.

Yah they are the stiffest shocks I've ever put on. I managed to compress one rear shock laying on my back before I pulled the bottle jack out to hold it in place. One thing to note, if you have a B&W gooseneck, you will have to remove the front 7 bolts of the gooseneck frame and drop the front bar down to access the passenger side shock mount on the frame.

Shocks for these trucks are pretty stiff. I had to lay under the shock and use both hands to get them To compress.
