I have heard good things about BDS (Big Dick Suspension - yeah, right) the prices are reportedly good and they work well. I've been told the Man A Fre springs are good (Dog Walker, I believe), and that Pinnacle and Skyjacker are a bit harsh. You might also price Alcans ($175-$200 apiece) Nolen (wrgrg) uses them, as do many of my friends - all have good experiences.

if you're planning on keeping the 33's, OME is a good choice too. pricey, but super soft. i'm running OME's with 35's and they rub some, but not too bad. nice articulation, great on washboard.

They rubbed fawkin' aweful, Jay, when I was in the passenger seat, specially on my side - I think it was due to Cruiser lean <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

Mine leans to the drivers side, but I think it means I need to go on a diet <IMG SRC="smilies/eek.gif" border="0">
That's the real reason for "Cruiser Lean "

Dude,

Buy the cheapest complete system out there, slap on some 35's and wait a year and you will get 50% of what you paid for it when you do your spring over.
