2007-2012 Jeep Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited JK OctoCam Alignment Cam Kit
Coldwater, MI—April 20, 2012— BDS is excited to release a new style alignment cam far superior to the tradition eccentric cams. The new OctoCam alignment cam washers allow for 5-position adjustability for caster on the front axle or pinion angle on the rear axle. The cams work with the factory control arm hardware and will not slip under load like traditional eccentric cam setups can. Available in sets of four, each set of OctoCams will complete one axle.
For more info on the JK OctoCam alignment cams and find the distributor nearest you, check out BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.
New for 2012 is the Pentastar 3.6L in the Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited models. For those of you looking to lift your new 2012 JK, the factory exhaust crossover pipe is in close proximity to the front driveshaft limiting the amount of droop to about 2” before they come in contact with each other. To combat this problem BDS Suspension has developed exhaust extensions (#124314) to relocate the crossover pipe rearward allowing for addition clearance and full range of motion of the front driveshaft with 3” of lift. The extensions are precision machined from 2.5” x .250” wall DOM tubing to fit the factory ball/taper seat connection properly for a leak-proof seal. Thick-walled tubing is used to ensure the extension will not deform under extreme heat conditions. Longer hardware is included to compensate for the added extension length and allow the reuse of the factory clamp collars. Installation is a breeze and can be done in a matter of minutes with basic hand tools. For more info on this kit, contact BDS Suspension at (517) 279-2135 or bds-suspension.com
Press Release #113 – Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks for BDS Lift Kits
Coldwater, MI– August 23, 2011– BDS Suspension and Fox Racing have teamed up and are proud to announce the release of a full line of Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks. BDS and Fox engineers developed this monotube shock with compression and rebound valving tuned specifically to optimize the ride and performance of your BDS equipped rig. The Fox 2.0 is an upgrade option for most BDS Suspension kit applications and is designed to be a direct bolt in for easy installation.
The Fox 2.0 features specially formulated race oil and a cold-forged, metalimpacted 6061 T6 aluminum body capable of dissipating heat 3 times faster than conventional steel body shock improving overall performance and longevity.
Case hardened 5/8’’ chrome shafts provide extreme durability and cnc-machined type II hard black anodized aluminum components provide a rugged fade free finish.
Unlike the emulsion shocks you may be familiar with, this new monotube performance shock features an internal floating piston (IFP) designed to separate Fox’s formulated race shock oil from the high-pressure nitrogen charged gas chamber. This constant pressure eliminates oil aeration and foaming, providing a consistent, predictable ride under the roughest driving conditions with fade-free performance.
Designed and tested for BDS Suspension applications, these shocks are ready to bolt on and perform, not to mention look great right out of the box. Get the most out of your ride today with BDS Suspension and Fox 2.0 Performance Series shocks.

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.
