BDS 5.5″ Performance DSC Coilover Systems for 2015-16 Chevy Colorado/GMC Canyon Trucks

BDS Suspension ups the ante on 2015-2016 Colorado/Canyon trucks with new 5.5″ DSC Coilover Systems featuring FOX’s 2.5 DSC remote coilovers. This new system improves upon BDS’s standard 5.5″ IFS lift kits as well as the soon to be released performance coilover systems with a pair of specially built FOX 2.5 coilovers with dual speed compression (DSC) adjusters for easily tunable ride quality ideal for dialing in the trucks ride performance for any terrain while offering superior performance when you’re blazing a trail through Baja.

This newest suspension option is available as both an upgrade for current Colorado/Canyon trucks running the BDS 5.5″ kits as well as complete 5.5″ DSC C/O System ready to transform your stock truck into a trail monster.

As with all BDS lift kits this new 5.5″ DSC C/O System is backed by Factory Protection Plus (FPP) offering peace of mind whether you’re on the road or off the beaten path. FPP combines BDS’s No Fine Print Lifetime Warranty, FMVSS No.126 ESC system compliance, and a 5-year 60,000-mile drivetrain warranty at no additional cost to the consumer.

Improve the stance and capability of your 2015-2016 Chevy Colorado or GMC Canyon with BDS Suspension and FOX.

For more information on the kit see below, head online to BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.


Factory Protection Plus
  • 5-year, 60,000 mile drivetrain warranty
  • FMVSS No.126 ESC System compliance
  • BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty

5.5″ Colorado/Canyon DSC Coilover Lift Kits: BDS raises the bar once again with new 5.5″ DSC Coilover Systems for the 2015-2016 Colorado/Canyon. Designed around the tried-and-true steering knuckle and crossmember technology, these kits provide enough lift fit 33″ tires while maintaining the OE suspension geometry for smooth handling and ride characteristics. Along with the rugged, high clearance design to maximize ground clearance, this new system has passed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No.126 and has been independently certified to not adversely effect the vehicles factory installed electronic stability control system with the lift installed. That combined with BDS No Fine Print Warranty and a 5-year 60,000-mile drivetrain warranty gives you the peace of mind wherever and however you use and abuse your truck.

This system uses a pair of heavy duty 1/4″ steel high clearance crossmembers to reposition the lower control arms and work in unison with the massive ductile cast iron extended steering knuckles. The crossmembers utilize the factory alignment eccentrics and tie together with a full-width skid plate. The skid plate protects vital front end components for offroad use and ties the crossmembers together for a extremely rigid subframe. The front differential is relocated to keep CV axle angles at a minimum and function properly with the supplied transfer case indexing ring. This allows for the use of the factory front driveline once lifted. Front bump stop extension and sway bar links are included as well as new heavy duty Moog tie rod ends to properly set alignment without trimming the inner tie rods. In place of the factory struts this system uses precision tuned FOX 2.5 remote coilovers with DSC adjustment technology.

DSC is the next big thing allowing for easy adjustment of the your truck’s suspension compression dampening allowing you to dial in the ideal ride performance soaking up bumps large and small. The DSC has 12 adjustment points for the high speed compression as well as 10 adjustment points for the low speed compression allowing you to make large or small changes to further improve your performance. Adjustments can be made by simply twisting the “blue” high speed and “gold” low speed compression knobs located on the end of the remote reservoir of the FOX 2.5 coilovers. No tools or shop adjustments needed, allowing you to tune the suspension out on the trail.

Finishing off this new 5.5″ DSC coilover system, a 4″ rear block/u-bolt kit sets the new ride height and levels the stance. Specially tuned FOX 2.0 series IFP gas shocks are supplied to compliment the front coilovers and improve the Colorado/Canyon’s performance on or offroad. While the kits have not been test fit on the soon to be released 2.8L Duramax equipped trucks, it has been approved for use on the 2015-2016 gas model trucks and improves performance across any terrain and allows owners to install 33″ tires.

If you’re looking to up the ante an built your new Colorado/Canyon for any terrain, look no further than BDS and FOX with this new 5.5″ Performance Coilover System w/ DSC Adjusters. For more info on the kit and to find a dealer near you head online to

  • Ryan says:

    Any information on the net overall impact on vehicle height with the DSC kit, 1.5″ body lift, and 35″ tires as pictured on the red Canyon? Trying to determine if it’ll still fit in my garage 🙂

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Ryan, unfortunately that’s not a measurement we take when developing the kits. That said you can estimate it by taking the trucks current height, adding 6” for the suspension lift, along with 1.5” for the body lift, and finally adding 1/2 the difference if tire size (i.e. 31” stock tires to 35” tires will add 2” overall height)

  • Todd says:

    Is 5.5 available for deisel model canyon yet ?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Unfortunately our diesel Colorado/Canyon kits are not available quite yet, but plan to have them out soon. If you’re looking to lift it now our sister company Zone Offroad released their diesel Colorado/Canyon kits already. See their website for more information

  • charles says:

    Would I be able to run a 35′ tire with a 1.5? body lift, in addition to this kit?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Charles, if you look at the specs on the red GMC Canyon along the sidebar of this announcement that’s exactly how it was set up. That said it is still fairly tight in there and will require some trimming to allow them to clear when turning tight from side-to-side and using it offroad. We had that similar setup on our 2015 Colorado, check it out at

  • Jeff says:

    This red Canyon looks awesome! What brand are the wheels and tires? The black wheels and red letter tires look sweet!

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Jeff,
      the red GMC Canyon is running the BDS 5.5″ Coilover System, Zone Offraod 1.5″ body lift, 35×12.50x2o General Grabbers (red letter edition) and 20×9 Eagle Alloy 012 series wheels

  • Justin says:

    Any consideration or thoughts on producing a front coil over conversion for the H3 and H3T?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Justin,
      Thanks for your interest. There are a number of factors that go into the decision of what kits to offer for what vehicles. Some of the factors include OE sales number, consumer interest, current market saturation and aftermarket support. Each nw kit development in a big investment and unfortunately the H3/H3T isn’t an application we’re offering any kits for currently, torsion bar or coilover.

  • Joshua Burns says:

    Do you have a kit in production for the ZR2? If so when will it be out?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Joshua, I can say that we have Colorado ZR2 kits in development, however I can’t get into details on what size(s), options, expected release date, price point etc due to company policy. Once kits are on the shelf ready to ship we’ll be sending out an announcement, adding them to our website, and promoting on social media. Keep an eye out for future announcements

  • Joe says:

    Will the same set up as the red canyon work for a 2016 Canyon Crew Cab Allterrain 2WD?

  • Matt says:

    Can you test it on my 2wd?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Matt,
      its possible something could be worked out in the future to test the 2WD Colorado/Canyon, however at this time at this time its not as much of a priority with other projects currently underway and scheduled in the near future.
