2-3" Coilover Conversion Systems: For years now, Chevy Silverado HD and GMC Sierra/Denali HD owners have been limited to the traditional torsion bar system suspension options. BDS Suspension is excited to add next level technology for improved performance. Adding to the current 4.5" and 6.5" high clearance no torsion bar drop systems offered for 2011+ Chevy/GMC HD trucks, BDS is now shipping a 2-3" coilover conversion systems for superior ride quality and performance over any terrain. These new coilover systems have been engineered and tested for improved comfort, fade free performance, and increased suspension travel.

The new 2-3" coilover system is a game changer for HD performance. At the heart of the system is a pair of FOX 2.5 Factory Series Coilover with remote DSC reservoir. These coilovers offer vastly superior dampening for impressive capability to soak up the harshest terrains offroad while offering comfort on your daily commute. These FOX coilovers feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened stainless steel shaft, FOX coil springs, black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts and FOX’s DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment technology. DSC is the next big thing in suspension performance allowing for easy adjustment of the vehicle’s suspension compression dampening to dial in the ideal ride performance to soak up the bumps, both 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. The coilovers come fully assembled, preset for 2.5" of lift for optimal wheel travel, but can be adjusted between 2-3" of lift with the use of (#129600) spanner wrench. To mount the coilovers BDS supplies a bolt-on bracket that installs on the frame in the shock mount location. A weld-in support gusset is used to reinforce the upper mount, however still allows the kit to be completely reversible if the owner ever chooses to revert back to the torsion bar style suspension and upgrade the suspension on another truck.

In addition to replacing the factory torsion bars, the upper and lower control arms are upgraded to improved strength, travel, and accommodate the new coilovers. The new performance series upper control arms are designed specifically for this system to integrate with the 2.5 coilovers. The arms are fabricated from large 1.5" OD x .120-wall tubing, fully TIG welded for the highest quality, strength and durability. The arms utilize premium Moog brand ball joints and factory style rubber bushings for smooth, quiet operation and superior durability when compared to arms with uni-balls, poly bushings or heims. The ball joint cups are repositioned for optimal performance allowing a 30% improvement in wheel travel. These upper control arms are finished in a durable black powdercoat and include a billet aluminum ball joint dust cap. The control arms come fully assembled for easy install right out of the box. To compliment the uppers, the new lower control arms are built from high strength steel, fully boxed with internally gusseted. These lower arms integrate new reinforced lower coilover mounts and similar to the uppers use durometer specific rubber bushings at the frame mount and high quality Moog ball joints at the knuckle mount for quiet, low maintenance operation.

Rounding out the front suspension BDS supplies front differential relocation to correct CV axle operating angle to optimize CV performance. The relocation hardware installs easily with no differential modification needed while also allowing the reinstallation of the factory skid plate. Longer sway bar links are also included and bolt directly in place of the factory links to correct sway bar operating angle.

In the rear, BDS offers a simple block and u-bolt kit that retains ride quality and full use of the factory overload spring (if equipped). The rear comes standard with precision tuned FOX 2.0 IFP gas shocks and is available with optional FOX factory series 2.5 reservoir shocks to further improve performance. Additional options and accessories are in development; stay tuned for more information as new products are released. The system allows for 33-34’’ tires to be installed with minor trimming 35’’ tires with moderate trimming.

If you’re looking to get more out of your 2011+ Chevy Silverado HD or GMC Sierra/Denali HD look to BDS Suspension and the new 2-3" Coilover Conversion System. Head to the BDS website for more info and stop by your local BDS distributor to take your HD to the next level!

      Hey Joe, our R&D team in constantly developing new products and testing existing products for fitment on new model year trucks. Late model trucks drive the new product development, but we oftentimes we bring in older models to work on new kits. I don’t see the ’99-06 GM1500 models being high on our priority list for a coilover conversion, but we have had interest from others for a similar kit so there’s potential for it in the future at some point.

    I have a 2015 silverado 1500 aluminum UCAs with your 6 inch lift with fox front and back. Will a 18 inch wheel with -24 offset fit with a 35/12.50/18 tire.

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Nick,
      on your ’15 Chevy Silverado 1500 with our 6″ kit we recommend a max tire size of 35×12.50 on 20×9 wheels with 5.75″ backspacing. That said other sizes can be installed, but may require some degree of modification for keep them from contacting the bumper/fenders in all on and offroad driving conditions. Difficult to say whether your 18″ wheels with work without knowing the width. The -24 offset measurement is relative to the width of the wheel (the offset from center). For more on our recommended specs head to http://bds-suspension.com/product?kid=710H

  • Nick says:

    I know a 325/65/18 tire is .3 inches wider and .4 inches not as tall but would that size fit to?

    Reply
  • Nick says:

    The width of the wheel is 10. As of right now i have a 295 65 18 tire on there with 18 wheel – 24 offset and 10 inches wide. Just trying to see iff 325/65/18 will fit. I know some trimming may he involved.

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      That setup would be wider than we recommend with 6″ of lift and will likely require additional lift or a fair amount of trimming to clear in all driving conditions due to the tight, squared off fenders on the GM trucks. 325/65r18 measures out to 35×13.50 tires and 18×10 (-24 offset) measures out to a 4.5″ backspacing so in addition to being wider wheels/tires, the backspacing is smaller so they will stick out farther and increase the tires range of motion in the wheel well when you turn.

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Mike,
      This kit does allow the reinstallation of the stock 20″ wheels, however due to the large backspacing of that wheel you’ll need to run stock sized tires. Wide tires will rub the upper control arms. One solution would be running wheel spacers to achieve our recommended 5-5.5″ backspacing measurement.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Scott, we only offer the coilovers preset for the diesel trucks. That said we have had customers install this kit onto the gas HDs by adjusting preload positioning to dial in ride height. I’d recommend contacting BDS tech support for more on the topic, (517) 279-2135 or tech-bds@sporttruckusainc.com. The BDS website doesn’t offer the kit without the rear block, but if you purchase through your local BDS dealer they can exclude the rear block when ordering the kit.

    I love this setup, but I would really like to see this for the 01-10 HD trucks. I’m sure there is a huge market for owners with these trucks as they are considerably cheaper and many are paid for leaving more money for stuff like this. Not everyone can go buy a brand new 70k duramax then spend another $7,000 in wheels, tires, and suspension.

    If you made this for the 01-10 trucks I would gladly remove my 4-6 lift from a competitor and go to this setup. I’m looking to go with a 2″ lift with 37’s and fiberglass fenders on my 06 duramax.

      Hey Paul, unfortunately I can’t discuss what products may or may not be in the works for the future (company policy). That said we do currently offer a 6.5″ coilover conversion system for the late model GM HD trucks as well. While the coilovers have some ride height adjustability we don’t recommend lowering them down below 6.5″ as it will begin to cause alignment issues.or more on the 6.5″ coilover conversion system head to https://blog.bds-suspension.com/?p=13369

I have a 2004.5 with a Fabtech 6″ lift but I really hate the ride and ant to trade for the coilovers and a set of deavers in the rear. I really hope you guys get this going soon before someone else does as you well know the market is huge for this setup.

    It says you get a 30% increase in travel but I am having a hard time finding the factory specs for wheel travel on a 2016 gmc 2500 hd.
    So what is a rough estimate of front wheel travel with this kit installed?
    Thanks Mike

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Mike,
      Unfortunately I don’t have the full wheel travel measurements from the marketing department, but going from the stock suspension to the 2.5″ coilover will improve travel numbers by 1″ for up travel and 2″ for down travel with this kit. The other benefits include improved strength, ride quality and improved dampening performance.

      Hey Paul, this system won’t effect wheel fitment. It is designed as a mid-travel system to retain the OEM steering knuckles and does not increase the track width. 17″+ wheels can be installed..

      Reply
  • Woods says:

    Just to clarify on Paul’s question, with the 2.5″ coil-over kit, I could run 18″ wheels as long as they have 5 to 5.5″ backspacing? My preference would be for something like an 18×9 rim with +20mm offset running something like 295/70 tires. I’ve got stock 18×9’s on the truck but they have something like a +44mm offset which I think is a 6″ backspacing.

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Woods, you’ll be fine installing 18×9 wheels with 5-5.5″ backspacing. If you’re looking to reinstall the factory wheels you’ll need to use a wheel spacer to achieve our recommended (5-5.5″ BS) wheel specs for tire/wheel clearance.

    I have sent a couple of emails to the tech department with no response. Hopefully I’ll have more luck here:

    – Does the kit carry over to the ’18 trucks?
    – Do you have the option of adding bump stops and rear leaves as per the “Project Raider” truck?
    – Confirming my previous post above that 17×8.5 0 offset, 4.75 backspacing wheels can be used? Or would an 18×9 18/5.75 clear better for approx 35×12.5 tyres
    – Are there any steering components altered? I am in Australia and my truck would be converted to RHD. Just need to know if there will be any issues.
    – What other components should be beefed up? tierods, idler arms, pitman arms
    – Could you give me packed dimensions including weight for shipping?

    Happy for you to email.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Paul, sorry to hear you’ve had trouble reaching out tech dept via email. To answer your questions,

      – These kits carry over to 2018 models, we sent out an update https://blog.bds-suspension.com/?p=15142
      – We do not offer the rear bump stops or rear leaf spring option on #projectraider . Those were both prototype parts that didn’t make it into production.
      – Wheels, our official recommendation to maximize clearance to the suspension/steering and fenders is to use 20×9 wheels 5-5.5″ BS) if fitting 35×12.50 tires. The 17×8.5 (4.75″ BS) wheels will work, but due to the smaller BS you’ll either need to run a smaller tire or trim more for fitment. The 18×9 (5.75″ BS) wheels will not work with oversized tires on this kit. If running 17-18s we recommend a maximum of 5″ BS.
      – Steering components are not altered with the 2-3″ coilover conversion. We have not test fit this kit on a RHD truck to confirm compatibility, but don’t expect any changes being needed on the 2-3″ coilover conversion kit.
      – While no other vehicle modifications are necessary, aftermarket steering tie rods are a common upgrade. We don’t offer them, but there are several companies that do.
      – I don’t have the shipping dimensions/weights available to me in the marketing dept, but you can contact Ron Scudder in international sales for assistance there, rscudder@sporttruckusainc.com

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Paul,
      – Bump Stops: We haven’t released the front bump stop kit either, however we’re using a set of the FOX #88302129 IFP bump stops, modified to install in the rear factory bump stop location.
      – Wheels, If the wheels you want don’t come in the specs our kit requires, you’ll need to find another wheel or install wheel spacers to achieve the recommended backspacing measurement.
      – Ron is quick to reply to messages, just send him one and he’ll help you figure out shipping options, although we don’t offer manufacturer direct retail international shipping. You’ll need to purchase through one of our currently dealers that will ship to Australia or go through a freight forwarder that can supply us with a US ship to address to place the order.

    Thanks Carter,

    So I could fit 1/4in wheel spacers to achieve 5in backspacing on the 17×8.5 4.75in wheels? That would be easily achievable. Is there much involved in adding the bumpstops?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Paul, wheel spacers are an acceptable way to achieve our recommended wheel specs, however if you start with a 4.75″ backspaced (BS) wheel and add a .25″ spacer you’ll get a 4.5″ BS (not a 5″ BS). By adding the spacer you are decreasing measurement for wheel mount surface to backside of the wheel. On the bump stops there is cutting and welding involved to modify the factory bump stop mount notch the threaded cup for the FOX bumps, being that we currently don’t list them we don’t have the detailed instructions available on how to install them.

      Reply
  • Paul says:

    Thanks Carter. That was pretty stupid of me thinking it worked the other way. Is the issue clearing the suspension arms or the fenders/valance etc? Each back spacing either side of 5in would have pros and cons for both I imagine.

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Its a clearance issue to the control arms, if it was just bumper/fender trimming we’d add a note to the kit notes and approve it for use.

      Reply
  • Paul says:

    If the control arms are the issue, wouldn’t a lesser backspace be more suitable. I’m struggling to get my head around why a 4.75 backspace would not work? Or is this now just a fender and valance trimming issue for 35’s? Slim pickings for a 17in wheel with 5in backspace.

Our engineering team looked into it and ultimately what it came down to is the suspension designs differs so the 2-3″ coiler design from the newer trucks doesn’t translate over to the older trucks, Clearances are much more limited due to the factory suspension so the coilover conversion could not be installed at 0-3″ lift heights without extensive frame modification. By installing a full lift kit (which increases front track width) we can achieve sufficient clearance for the FOX 2.5 coilovers with bolt-on brackets. The additional height also allows a longer travel coilover to be used. At this time we don’t plan to release the a 2-3″ coiler conversion system for the ’01-10 HD.

      We haven’t released pricing yet (will come with the official announcement once parts are on the shelf ready to ship), but it will be a bit lower than to the late model kits as it uses a LCA bracket rather than a complete replacement LCA

        Is there a way to get it with the replacement lca I’m not a fan of brackets on kits like this just seams to make it look cheep would be more than willing to pay a higher price for something that looks and feels more stable your competitors that manufacturer this kit all seam to do a boxed lca and with ditching the torsion bars for coil overs the oem lca will have a big hole in them

    Having ing the 3″ Coilover kit installed next week and wanted to get your take on running a 20 x 10 wheel with 4.75 backspacing and 305/55 R20 tires. Will I need to trim much and if so where? They have the wheel I want in 20×9 5″ BS but want a little more stout stance. Thanks!!

      Hey Erik, as far as our tire/wheel recommendations, they are just that, recommendations based on what we’ve tested in house. Other sizes can be used, but may require additional trimming. That tire/wheel combo can be installed, however you will likely need to do some trimming on the front bumper valance and rear inner fender liner to clear in all driving situations on-road and off. The coilovers come pretuned for 2.5″ of lift so if you’re planning on setting the kit up at 3″ we have a spanner wrench (#129600) to make the adjustments. If you’re getting the kit installed through one of our dealers they’ll likely have the spanner wrench on hand

    Will the 2.5″ coilover conversion work on a 2017 dually with stock wheels?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Cody, we have notes in the announcement and on the website in reference to this. Stock 17-18″ wheels cannot be reinstalled without wheel spacers for any models and for the dually in specific we recommend aftermarket 20″+ wheels with a max tire size of 285/60r20.

    With this kit on a 2016 chevy 2500 will it fit in a standard garage? How tall would the truck be if it has on 35” tires with this kit?

      Hey Scott, overall vehicle height isn’t a measurement we take when developing the kits as things like cab lights, lightbars, racks, antennas, true tire size etc will effect the measurement. You can get estimate your truck’s overall height by measuring your truck as it sits now, then add 2.5″ for the lift kit, then add 1/2 the difference in tire size (i.e. from 31″ stock to 35″ tires will raise the overall vehicle by 2″)

    Its possible put this kit in a hummer h2 2005? suspensions are the same right? Chevy, GMC, Hummer….

      Hey Juan, short answer is no this kit won’t work on your Hummer H2. The GM 2500HD chassis switched from the older style IFS used on ’01-10 models to the newer style IFS (still torsion bar) for ’11-19 trucks. The Hummer H2 uses a similar front design to the ’01-10 HD trucks, but there are a few difference up front with the kit and the rear is a different design (coil sprung rear on H2 vs leaf sprung on HD). We used to offer lift kits for the H2, but have discontinued them a few years back due to the low sales volume.
