Default Are you trying to decide between Rubicon express and BDS?

Rubicon express considers these photos as "normal wear and tear". No warranty coverage. The tech was nice enough to suggest a shackle reversal setup though

I sure wish BDS made a SOA spring.

You can see where the spring is bent which means you hit something with your tire and it pushed the spring back. Being fixed at the rear it has no place to go and will bend. Sometimes they break, sometimes they don't.

Put BDS on it and it will do the same thing under the same circumstances. Only difference is that BDS will warranty it.

skyjacker has an awsome warranty as well as rough country. I would have loved to been there to tell the tech where he can shove that "normal wear and tear broken spring"

I fully know that. Its just going to cost me $170, where if I had BDS, it would be free, hence the title of this thread.
