Re: BDS Good or Bad

The BDS shocks are valved a little stout, if you want a plusher ride go with the ICON version. Same shock, different valving.

That being said, BDS makes a nice kit and a great warranty. Its what i run on both of my trucks and have never had a single issue. Here are a few pics of a 6 inch bds w/ rear springs and 37inch toyos on 24 inch mazzis.

Truck looks great. Are those 20x10 wheels?

Looks good. With your 20x10 wheels how much tire do you have sticking out from the fenders?? A photo would be great. I'm just trying to decide on 20x9 or 20x10 BMFs

Re: BDS Good or Bad

I really dont have a pic that shows how far they hang out other than this one. The 10's will hang out 1.25 more than the 9's will. The tires also look a little better on the 10's less bulge and seem to look more proportionate to the truck but that is just my opinion. Either one will look good and do a good job of spraying up the side of the truck!
