I will see what they can tell me when I get them on the phone.

In the Fox line you want the “factory race” series 2.0 with remote reservoir.

I'm not opposed to completely swapping the suspension out again, wouldn't be too difficult to sell that BDS kit.

if the spring rates are in the ballpark then no need to do that, likely just the shocks are not to your liking. make sure the pivot bolts at both the mount and shackle are not over tightened and binding the spring. i’ll Dig up the torque spec in a bit, if they were installed with a impact it could just be the shackle is binding from being to tight.....seen that trick many times, rookie mistake

I finally heard back from one of the BDS engineers:
  • 003202 Front Leafs - 650 lb/in @ 28" from center of hub to fender
  • 003609 Rear Leafs - 450 lb/in @ 28.5" from center of hub to fender
    • 4° shim for pinion alignment
Looks like Procomps will be worth a shot.
