Re: My "Hybrid" lift build thread

I am on JU and I have never seen that thread! Lesson learned is that I need to get the Superlift, ha ha. I have heard that there is some rear suspension components from BDS that are better than the Superlift, but that the EGR Module only works with the Superlift. You know anything about that?

Re: My "Hybrid" lift build thread

I think it might work since both lifts are identical, the only difference and it's were the BDS is better IMO is the rear adjustable control arms, with my setup and the "extreme" angles which are not bad at all i might add! i have no dash lights or any other problem.
I will be upgrading to the BDS soon if all goes well.

I believe the ESP kicks in when you go with larger tires if i am not mistaken, never had a problem with that either.

Re: My "Hybrid" lift build thread

ESP kicks in due to changes in steering geometry that the Superlift introduces(from replacement steering knuckles?). The EGR module fixes that problem (and a few other items).

The major benefit of the BDS lift is that it uses adjustable rear control arms instead of drop brackets. I've had to change my wheeling habits (to take less challenging lines) due to my Superlift drop brackets. I'm seriously considering replacing my Superlift rear with BDS components.

Re: My "Hybrid" lift build thread

OME is actually more like a 3+ inch lift. I certainly wasn't disappointed with the OME lift height. It sat equal to the RK 3.5" lift and much better quality and ride comfort.
