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

BDS Suspension now offers FOX 2.5 factory series remote coilovers adding to the lineup of 5.5″ suspension systems for the 2015-2016 Colorado/Canyon trucks. This new #722F performance coilover system joins the #722H standard IFS system and #722FDSC DSC coilover system currently available. Designed to outperform on and offroad, these new suspension systems ride smooth on road, handle great on any terrain and provide superior dampening when you’re running wide open down the trail. Get the look and performance with room for 33s.

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″ C/O System ready to transform your stock truck into a trail monster.

As with all BDS lift kits this new 5.5″ Performance Coilover 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,independently tested 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.

BDS SUSPENSION SYSTEMS ARE PROTECTED BY THE FACTORY PROTECTION PLUS PROGRAM

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 Coilover Lift Kits: BDS raises the bar once again with new 5.5″ Performance 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 reservoir coilovers. The FOX 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers are built to perform right out of the box. They feature:

  • Smooth-bore, clear coated, zinc plated alloy body
  • Black anodized 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounting components
  • 7/8″ hard chrome plated heat treated alloy steel shaft
  • High flow piston design with specially formulated race oil
  • External reservoir separates shock oil from high-pressure nitrogen
  • Easy bolt-on installation, coil spring preload set for proper ride height out of the box

Finishing off this new 5.5″ 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. For more info on the kit and to find a dealer near you head online to bds-suspension.com.

Important Kit Notes:
1) Inner fender trimming is required.
2) Minor welding is required.
3) Electronic assisted power steering system is sensitive to out of round, unbalanced, and more aggressive tread pattern tires. High speed steering wheel feedback can occur.
4) Gas truck compatible only, fitment not tested on diesel trucks currently.
5) Actual ride height on C/O kits is closer to 6″ of lift.

Max Tire/Wheel Recommendations:
305/55r20 Tires w/ 20×9 (5.25″ BS) Wheels
305/70r17 Tires on 17×9 (4.5″ BS) Wheels (or 18×9 wheels)
295/70r17 Tires on 17×8 (4.5″ BS) Wheels (or 18×8 wheels)

    It’s October,

    WHEN is the 2.8L Duramax kit going to be available?? I don’t want a Zone, as there is no coilover set up for that lift. I prefer BDS, Yes I know the parent company owns both BDS and Zone.

    Think this will work for the zr2 when you get the Duramax kiit? I have already given the dealer the build sheet for the zr2 I want so they can order it first thing.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Mike,
      We’re still waiting to get our hands on the new ZR2 to check compatibility with our lift kits. At this point we haven’t released the revised Colorado/Canyon kits to fit both gas/diesel models.

    How much is the kit for the 2017 diesel going to be? Does a leveling kit need to be installed first? Or does it need to be done after

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Clint,
      price point on the diesel+gas compatible lift kits will be comparable to where they are now. The 5.5″ lift is designed to level the stance of the truck, 5.5″ lift in the front, 4″ of lift in the rear.

    Will 17×9 wheels w/4.53 back spacing (-12offset) work if I install BDS 5.5″ lift on a 2016 Chevy colorado 3.6l v6?? I already own the aftermarket wheels and want to avoid any issues. Thanks

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Shane, thanks for your interest in BDS. You will be fine to use your current wheels with our 5.5″ lift systems. Our recommendation for the 5.5″ lift is to run 305/70r17 tires on 17×9 with 4.5″ backspacing (larger wheel backspacing can be used as well). Minor trimming may be necessary to maximize space inside the wheel well.
