    BDS / Bilstein 2" lift

    Well the issue was never resolved. it seemed to maybe be an issue with that specific model of KJ. I compared the suspension setup with some other KJ drivers and it was quite a bit different. So I came to the conclusion that it was not really stock. I sold my KJ and got a Suzuki Jimny. Think...

    BDS / Bilstein 2" lift

    BDS / Bilstein 2" lift

    I took this to the mech shop to install. The stuff is in and looks great. I have a problem though when i go over speed bumps (not even at too much speed.) - there is a hard "thud" noise from the front. They seem to think it might be the control arms touching the spring (i still have the stock...

    We have them here in South Africa. Def. not a good as OME or BDS. But not bad. The ride is much harsher than OME and BDS. I'd say it;s a mid level lift option.

    Part number: Front: F4-BE5-D916-H0 Rear: F4-BE5-6458-H7 yeah I went Wheeling in the dunes here with some other Jeep guys and they swear by BDS. I suppose with a no nonsense warranty like BDS has whats not to like?
