Anybody run BDS 2.5" springs SOA?

Just wondering if anyone ran them - are they soft/stiff etc. My rear leafs are starting to go the other way (knew procratinating about the AWB would bite me in the a**)

Also, any thoughts/comments about this new thinngy-ma-bobby:

Yup, I run 'em and have for about 2 years now. THe fronts flattened out just a little and have been well used and abused (read reversed many, many times) and the rears have a Rancho add-a-leaf. I wrapped 3 sets of them in the rear (even with a bar) before finally adding the Rancho leaf. Problem being, I carry a couple hundred pounds of food and gear in the arse end of the Heep and the springs were too soft to hand;e that and flex out at the same time. If you were running lighter, they would be fine without the add-a-leaf. It rides a little "stink buggish" with no weight in it, but flexes and levels out nicely with trail gear loaded up.

Best thing - lifetime warranty, no questions asked!!
