4.5″ Long Arm Suspension System—2007-2010 Jeep

Coldwater, MI—January 25, 2010—BDS is proud to release the new 4-Link 4.5″ long arm system for the ’07-10 Jeep Wrangler. This system is a true symphony of off road performance and on road handling. The 4-Link long arm system offers improved caster angles which provides excellent steering control for on road handling as well as high speed off road use. Disconnect the sway bars with the BDS Ultimate disconnects and you’ll see the system really perform. The re-buildable and greasable flex arms allow the suspension to flex over any obstacle while the track bar relocation systems help to reduce body roll as well as properly match the steering angles.

In order to offer this type of extreme flex, the BDS Pro-Ride coils were designed to be able to fully collapse and still return to their original height. Repetitive off road use won’t even phase these coils springs! Braided, stainless brake lines with Kevlar lining are included to enhance braking performance as well as allow for extreme wheel travel.

This complete system also includes a forged dropped pitman arm for reduced steering angles, bump stop extensions, rear sway bar relocation and easy to follow installation instructions.

6″ High Clearance Suspension System – 2009-2010 Ford F-150 2WD

Coldwater, MI—January 12, 2010—BDS Suspension is now shipping the 2009-2010 2WD F150 6″ High-Clearance suspension system. This High-Clearance IFS system is a true blend of performance, appearance and function. Maintaining the OE control arm movements ensures an OE style ride with a desert racing appearance. These crossmembers blend perfectly with the lower control arm angles to give a truly OE appearance.

Combine the HC geometry with the custom valved off-road struts and this system is hard to beat. Unlike the spacer kits on the market, the BDS system comes with custom struts that are made to handle the increased forces of larger tires and wheels to offer a factory like ride on road and still handle those off road excursions. Unlike most systems on the market, the rear kit includes an offset spring plate to shift the axle back to the center of the wheel well ensuring those 37’s will have plenty of room. The complete system is available in our traditional Granite powder coating or a textured black powder coating. Optional rear 9500 series rear gas shocks are also available.
