PRESS RELEASE #110

First to Market; the new BDS 6.5″ High Clearance Suspension System for the 2011 Chevy/GMC 2500/3500HD 4WD is now available at BDS Distributors Worldwide

Coldwater, MI—October 5, 2010—BDS Suspension is proud to announce their new 6.5’’ HC Suspension System to lift new GM HD trucks and allow the fitment of 37s. BDS is the first to market with this American-manufactured 6.5’’ System with kits available and shipping out now! As with other BDS IFS systems, this kit’s one-piece crossmember is made from 1/4” steel with internal supports and is built to handle any abuse you can throw at it. The extreme high clearance design and BDS exclusive No Torsion Bar Drop design eliminates lowering the torsion bar crossmember, improving ground clearance and the overall aesthetics. BDS also includes both differential and front impact skidplates creating a bulletproof drivetrain backed by an Industry Exclusive, No Fine Print LifeTime Warranty.

CNC machined replacement steering knuckles ensure OE steering geometry and offer no change in track width as well as zero change to OE turning radius. Our knuckles are 100% resonant frequency tested as well as random X-Ray tested to ensure a quality product made right here in the USA.

In the rear, this system uses a 5” block kit that eliminates the square u-bolts and switches to a stronger round u-bolt set up.  The rear 5” block even has a cast wing creating a new bump stop point. This system comes complete with BDS 5500-series shocks front and rear and can be upgraded to 9500-series gas shocks. Stainless Steel brake lines round out this system, replacing the weak factory lines.

PRESS RELEASE #106

6″ High Clearance Suspension System—1988-1998 Chevy/GMC K1500 & K2500 6-Lug 4WD & 1992-1998 Chevy/GMC Tahoe, Yukon, & Suburban 6-Lug 4WD

Coldwater, MI—March 10, 2010—BDS Suspension has released a 6” High Clearance system for the 88-98 K1500 and K2500 6-Lug 4wd and the 92-98 Tahoe, Yukon, and Suburban 6-Lug 4wd. The lift kit’s one piece cross member is made from 1/4” steel with internal supports. They can handle about any abuse you can throw at them. The extreme high clearance design ensures that you won’t get hung up on anything compared to most other kits on the market.

Unlike many ‘88-98 knuckle kits on the market, this system does not increase the track width. The knuckle design combined with the crossmembers and upper A-arms offer improved geometry and reduced stress on the ball joints compared to other systems available.

New heavy-duty upper greaseable A-arms are included to improve tire clearance as well as allow for the zero track width change. The steel differential skid plate is used to lock the front and rear cross members together as well as offer increased off road protection. CNC machined replacement steering knuckles allow the system to ensure OE steering geometry while reducing installation time when compared to an older style drop down bracket kit. Our knuckles are 100% resonant frequency tested as well as random X-Ray tested to ensure a quality product.

The rear is lifted with either a 4” block and Add-a-leaf kit or new BDS Glide-Ride Leaf springs. The BDS rear leaf springs feature bolt style leaf alignment clamps, anti-friction pads, and tapered leafs.
