2012 Jeep Wrangler JK/Wrangler Unlimited JK

Coldwater, MI—August 10, 2012— The 2012 Wrangler has proven itself to be a formidable offroad vehicle in stock form. To improve its capabilities BDS Suspension now offers the redesigned 4/4.5″ long arm suspension lift kits for the 2-door and 4-door model 2012 Wranglers.

The heart of this system is the new longer 4-link design, built to outperform the competition both on and off-road. New mounts are made from 1/4″ thick steel and work with the new heavy-duty lower flex arms and adjustable upper flex arms to maximize suspension travel and optimize handling characteristics. BDS Pro-Ride coils improve the overall ride quality and offer full coil bind capability for longevity no matter how you use or abuse them.

These lift kits also include a set of ultimate sway bar disconnects (links for Rubicon models), front and rear braided stainless steel kevlar lined brake lines, drop pitman arm, bump stop extensions, track bar brackets, and your choice of BDS 5500 hydraulic or Fox 2.0 gas shocks.

Optional accessories for these lift kits include front and rear adjustable track bars and steering stabilizer upgrades.

As with all BDS lift kits it is covered under the No Fine Print Warranty. For more info on this product and other suspension options for your new Jeep Wrangler, check out BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

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.
