Knuckles are made by the same company and both do the exact same thing.
SL has the EGR which is also compatible with the BDS, and if they are a step higher, why didn't they come out with there own EGR instead of telling there customers to buy the SL/AEV EGR?
IMO there is no comparison between the two, they are both equal in quality and durability.
Acid, yes both have been around and both are trusted companies. I said BDS was superior for two reasons; reason one is what you mentioned with the adjustable control arms. The control arms on the SL kit are more prone to get hung up on rocks, obstacles, etc.. The next reason which is a make or break for me is that BDS offers a lifetime warrenty
on all parts of their lift with a no questions asked policy, no matter if you break them on the trail or due to normal wear. That alone makes the BDS kit superior.
Im sure if BDS wanted they could have developed a EGR module that would have done the exact same thing as AEV's, but whats the point if one is already out there? Why waste the money on R&D especially since its for such a limited crowd.
I know you have the Super Lift and its is a very nice kit, but c'mon that BDS setup is just that much more badass.
