FIRST TO MARKET 2014 Dodge Ram 2500 4″ Lift Kit

BDS Ram Lift KitColdwater, MI— BDS Suspension is proud to announce the newest edition to our full line of suspension lifts and off-road accessories, the FIRST TO MARKET BDS 4″ Suspension Lift Systems to fit 2014 RAM 2500 4WD trucks equipped with front coil sprung radius arm and rear coil sprung multi-link suspension.

In record time the engineers at BDS Suspension have developed, tested, and manufactured this latest offering for the new 3/4-ton RAM trucks. The front of this kit is designed around BDS’s unique radius arm relocation bracket that allow for simple installation while providing the strength and durability of a full replacement radius arm mount. Built from laser cut 1/4″ steel, the new relocation bracket tie into both the factory radius arm frame mount and the side of the frame rail for a rigid mount to reposition the OE radius arm for caster correction and an overall improvement to suspension geometry.

In addition to the radius arm relocation, the kit includes everything needed to properly lift the new 2014 Ram 2500 trucks to clear up to a 37′” tire. The additional height comes from a pair of specially designed progressive rate ProRide coil springs. These progresive rate coils are engineered to improve ride quality and performance across all terrains while holding up to the rigors that 3/4-ton truck owners demand. Due to the unique factory coil mount design on the new radius arm equipped trucks BDS has developed left and right side-specific coils to improve performance and eliminate coil bowing. Also up front, a heavy duty fabricated front track bar bracket, forged drop pitman arm and black e-coated brake line relocation hardware are included to reposition all steering and brake components to work with the addition ride height and allow this truck to perform flawlessly on and off-road.

New for 2014, the RAM 2500 has done away from the traditional leaf spring rear suspension in favor of a multi-link, coil spring suspension similar in design to that of the ’09-up RAM 1500 trucks. For this particular new system, the rear lift is achieved by installing a pair of heavy duty steel fabricated 2.5″ coil spacers that bolt directly on the factory coil spring axle mount to retain the ride characteristics provided by the OE coils. An axle mounted track bar relocation bracket repositions the track bar to recenter the rear axle. Rounding out this kit are a pair of extended sway bar links to keep the rear sway bar at the optimum operating angle and your choice of BDS-5500 hydraulic or Fox 2.0 performance gas shocks at all 4 corners.

Available Accessories

BDS is also offering a number of accessories to fit the new 2014 RAM 2500 trucks. Both single and dual steering stabilizer kit are available to meet your on-road and off-road performance needs. Available in both 5500-series (white body) and 9500-series (brushed stainless body) the stabilizers improve drivability by reducing front end shimmy caused by oversized tires and mount above the tie-rod for extra protection when offroad. In addition to steering stabilizers, BDS offers a heavy duty adjustable front track bar to allow you to dial in the the front axle positioning. Constructed from 1-3/8″ solid steel stock this new adjustable track bar is built to handle on and off-road abuse and uses a 1-3/8″-12 fine threaded pinch bolt design turnbuckle to allow easy tuning to properly recenter the front axle for a range of lift heights. The track bar is formed for proper clearance around critical front end components and features gusseted ends for additional rigidity. The ends utilize high-durometer polyurethane bushings with thick-walled steel sleeves for strength and reliability.

All BDS kits are backed by Factory Protection Plus, a comprehensive drivetrain warranty that brings together BDS No Fine Print Warranty and a 5-year, 60,000 mile drivetrain protection coverage, included at no extra cost.
