BDS Suspension Now Shipping 2016 Chevy/GMC HD Lift Kits

BDS Chevy:GMC Lift KitsThe 4.5-inch lift system is the perfect option for HD owners looking for more ground clearance and room for 35-inch tires. Based off BDS’s tried and true high clearance IFS design these systems are extremely stout and ready to perform out on the trail while providing the on-road comfort HD owners have come to expect. These kits integrate flawlessly with the OE installed electronic stability control (ESC) systems for safety. Up front the kit utilizes a pair of one-piece 1/4-inch steel high clearance crossmembers, differential relocation brackets, heavy duty differential skid plate, support brace, and front BDS-branded skid plate to create a sturdy subframe and improved offroad protection. A pair of CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles dwarf the factory units and position off the stock upper arm and relocated lower arm mounts without increasing track width. To further increase the ground clearance over other kits this 4.5-inch system tucks the torsion bars up tight to the chassis using a pair of torsion bar relocation brackets that key off the factory lower A-arm. This design maximizes break over ground clearance to keep from getting high centered offroad with the added benefit of providing a clean, streamline appearance without the torsion bars hanging down. Extended DOT compliant braided stainless steel brake lines are supplied to all full suspension travel, longer links to allow the sway bar to function properly and your choice of precision tuned BDS 5500-series or FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks at all 4 corners. In the rear, this kit is offered with either a 2-inch or 3-inch rear block and u-bolt kits to achieve your designed stance.

6.5-inch High Clearance Lift Kits: Stepping up to the 6.5-inch high clearance systems, these kits allow for up to 37-inch tires to be installed. The 6.5-inch high clearance has been an extremely popular option for HD owners since its release in 2011. This kit is built to take a beating and is backed by BDS’s no fine print warranty. Similar to the 4.5-inch high clearance system, the 6.5-inch utilizes heavy duty 1/4-inch steel, laser cut crossmembers, multipoint differential relocation brackets, differential and front skid plate creating a sturdy subframe for the suspension. A pair of CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles dwarf the factory units and position off the stock upper arm and relocated lower arm mounts without increasing track width. To further increase the ground clearance over other kits this 6.5-inch system tucks the torsion bars up tight to the chassis using a pair of torsion bar relocation brackets that key off the factory lower A-arm.
