11-12 Super Duty w/ 8″ 4-Link Lift Kit

  • 4-Link design replaces radius arms
  • Newly redesigned leaf springs
  • Complete suspension lift kit

Coldwater, MI—June 11, 2012—Now in stock and ready for sale: Complete 8″ BDS 4-Link suspension systems for the 2011-2012 Ford Super Duty 4wd.  This new kit shares all the great features and benefits of our popular 2005-2010 8″ suspension systems.

The heart of the lift is the 4-link design that replaces the factory radius arms. The 4-link arms provide better strength as well as limits caster change to less than 1 degree through the 10” of wheel travel. This results in better handling and ride over radius arm setups at the same height. The rear lift uses our newly redesigned 003829 leaf springs that provide a great ride while still having the payload capacity you need from your F250/350 truck.

As with the rest of the 8″ 4-link kits available, brake lines, steering/track bar correction, full-length diesel/gas-specific coil springs, sway bar and bump stop relocation are included. The standard system includes BDS-5500 series shocks or you can upgrade to the available Fox 2.0 shocks. Dual shock mounts and dual steering stabilizer kits make great accessories to help handle the 38×15.50 tires that a this lift kit clears.

For more info on this Super Duty lift kit and to find the distributor nearest you, check out BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

Truckmaster Distributing, home of BDS Suspension, Zone Offroad Products, 4×4 Posi-Lok and numerous other quality 4×4 product lines is in the process of moving into their new biggerdigs. Here’s what Truckmaster’s President, Steve Olmstead had to say:

Truckmaster Distributing continues to add new products and new product lines to better serve our customers. Over the past several years we have seen our business explode to the point we cannot hire one more associate nor put in any more inventory simply because we’ve run out of space. On the one hand this can be viewed as a really positive thing. But when our business has been built on shipping the same day and never being out, lack of space has begun to affect our core principles.

The solution… buy a bigger building, and we did! The new facility is still located in Coldwater, MI and is nearly double the size of our current facilities. The new 70,000+ sq. ft. facility will give us the ability to  move administrative, sales, marketing, engineering, production, warehousing and shipping under one roof in the future. We plan to make the trasition without a lapse in service. We appreciate your patience as we begin the move and we look forward to being able to better serve our customers in the near future.
