Coldwater, MI - With an all new truck comes an all new suspension. Now available for the 2019 model year Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks BDS Suspension has released complete 6" IFS lift systems. Based around the tried and true high clearance technology that has made BDS the go to for GM suspension lifts, these systems have been designed from the ground up to get the more out of your truck with the most ground clearance on the market. This new 6" lift system is the first of many new BDS options to come available for the new trucks bringing you on road comfort, off-road capability and clearance for 35-37" tires. While some companies build "kits" to fit larger tires, BDS Suspension prides itself in engineering complete suspension systems designed to take your vehicle's performance to the next level while retaining OE-level functionality. Case in point the (NHTSA) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's FMVSS No.126 compliance standards requiring any aftermarket modification to not adversely effect the vehicle's electronic stability control (ESC) system performance in the event of an evasive maneuver. These new kits have been independently tested and certified compliant with these standards with up to 37" tires [as tested on 37x12.50 Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 tires on 20x9 Black Rhino wheels w/ 5.5" BS].

At the heart of this new 6" system BDS utilizes a pair of 1/4" thick laser cut high clearance crossmembers to maximize clearance and provide a solid mounting point for the OE lower control arms. These paired with the 3-piece heavy duty front skid plate system create a rigid subframe while adding protection for vital steering and driveline components. In place of the factory steering knuckles a pair of specially designed ductile iron replacement steering knuckles are supplied to maintain proper steering geometry for ESC system compatibility. These connect to the factory steering with a pair of heavy duty replacement tie rod ends included in the kit. The front differential is repositioned with BDS's multipoint relocation bracket system tying into the frame and control arm pockets to further secure the front differential to keep CV axle angles at a minimum.  Also included are a pair in high strength BDS upper control arms. A billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer is supplied along with longer hardware to allow the reinstallation of the factory driveshaft. Additional ride height on this particular kit comes from a set of top mounted steel fabricated strut spacers to mount onto the factory strut assemblies. These allow for quick-simple installation without the need to disassemble the factory struts and retain the OE ride quality. A pair of BDS-branded sway bar drop brackets used to correct the operating angle of the factory sway bar as well as created a strong brace between the rear crossmember and the frame. Rounding out the front of this kit are new lower control arm cam bolts to allow alignment and a weld-in frame reinforcement plate for extra strength.

In the rear of this 6" lift system, the factory block is replaced with a 5" lift block and longer u-bolts to lift and level the stance. Also included, BDS supplies brake line and ABS line brackets allow the use of factory brake lines. Your choice of specially tuned NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks are supplied to round out the rear of these kits. All kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat and sent with all hardware packs to complete the install along with step-by-step installation instructions. All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS's No Fine Print Warranty, FMVSS No.126 (ESC System) compliance certification and a 5year-100mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 Chevy/GMC 1500 truck with this new 6" lift system from BDS Suspension.

      They aren’t doing anything for Trail Boss or AT4.
      No one is.
      If you have a Trail Boss, you can put 35,s on with stock suspension.
      That’s what I run on mine. No rubbing at all. Drove over a parking block at all angles does not hit or rub.
      I would not recommend Gm.

          I can go as far to say the 4″ kits are in the works for the 2019 Chevy/GMC 1500, however they haven’t been released quite yet (and per company policy I can’t discuss when they are expected to be released).

    Will this kit fit 22’s on 35s?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Dan,
      we list our recommended wheel tire specs to include 35s/22s in the spec chart on the listing. That said you’ll want to follow our wheel width/backspacing recommendations to maximize clearance. While other wheel specs can be used, they may require additional trimming/modification for clearance.

    Do you offer an actual suspension lift with out those fake “lift” blocks?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Brock,
      Not sure what you mean by “fake” lift blocks, using rear lift blocks is a fairly common practice both by OEMs and aftermarket with GM and Ford doing it from the factory on their trucks. That said, to your point no we haven’t released the full rear spring options for the 2019 GM1500 trucks at this time, but will be offering the option in the future as well as FOX 2.5 coilover conversions for the front.

    will this 6″ BDS kit fit my 2WD 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 LTZ crew cab w/o MagneRide?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      The 4WD kit can be used on 2WD models, however you’ll have a few parts not used (differential drop brackets, front driveshaft spacer). We’ll be offering a 2WD version of the kit at some point in the future, however currently the plans are to finish out the 4WD kit sizes/options first.

      Reply
      • crimson castillo says:

        carter that is good to know. With that said is there a front coilover that can fit and work with the 2019 kit? From what I see theres only a basic kit with the strut spacer up top. At this point it becomes a waiting game but I would rather lift my truck with the 4WD kit sooner than later. Does the track width get increased? if so what size spacer do I need in the rear to match the front? 1.75″ or 2″? Thanks

        Reply
        • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

          We have not released the FOX coilover options at this point, but similar to our other application listings they will be offered in the future, lead time is typically a bit longer on the coilovers from the rest of the kit. As far as the track width change, the front is increased by roughly 1/2″ per side. While its not a requirement to install rear spacers and not as noticeable as with older GM trucks, if the 1/2″ is bugging you rear wheel spacers can be added.

          Reply
          • crimson castillo says:

            Thank you Carter for letting me know about the rear spacers. Yes on older GM trucks the track width would increase. If its only 1/2″ per side that wont be even noticeable. Running 1/2″ spacers to even it out wouldn’t make sense and most likely would need to cut the OEM studs to make them work. Since you answered my question on coilovers my only option is to go with BASIC kit for now and upgrade later. With that said I plan on running 22×12’s with -51 offset with 325/50/22 tires. Do you think major cutting/trimming will be needed? Thus the reason I inquired about the coilover option.

          • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

            That isn’t a wheel/tire combination that we have tested, but my assumption would be that some trimming would be needed to clear in all driving situations (i.e. wheel turned tight pulling up into raised driveway or used offroad where the suspension may be articulated with the wheels turned). Likely the lower corners of the inner fender would need to be trimmed. The coilovers won’t give any additional clearance being they’ll be preset for 6″ of lift, the benefit would be improved ride and offroad performance.

        Will there be a 4? BDS kit fit my 2WD 2018 Chevy Silverado 1500 LT crew cab w/o MagneRide?

        Reply
        • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

          Hey Anthony, 2018 vs 2019 GM1500 trucks have several differences with the suspension. Currently we don’t list 2WD specific kits for the ’14-18 Gm1500 truck, however our 4WD kits are a direct bolt-on for 2WD models with the exception of the differential brackets and CV spacers that aren’t used.

    Can ICON coil overs be used on a BDS kit? I only see them as having coilovers for 2019 new body styles. Link is below

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      While we haven’t tested that particular setup they’d likely have clearance to bolt-in place with our kit. The main concerns would be ride height adjustability and overall travel being those Icons are listed for 1.5-3.5″ of lift. The strut spacer used in our 6″ kit is designed to bolt onto the factory strut to net 6″ of lift. I don’t know if the Icon’s could be adjusted up to 6″ to eliminate the need for a strut spacer or adjusted down to 0″ lift to use in combination with our spacer. We don’t recommend setting ride height taller than 6″, being the rest of the suspension/steering/driveline components are designed for 4-6″ of lift.

      My recommendation would be to go with the standard kit for now and upgrade to the bolt-in FOX coilovers once they are released to ensure compatibily.

    I just ordered this lift for my 2019 RST Silverado and plan to use my factory 20″ wheels. I’m not sure the backspacing but can I run a 35×12.50 on that OEM wheel or would it be better to runt he 295/65?

      Hi Jorge, we have several additional options in the works for the new ’19 GM1500 trucks, the 6″ is typically the most popular so it was the first one to be developed/tested/released. While I wish I could say more, our company policy dictates that I can’t get into new product development topics as far as kit sizes, pricing or expected release dates. As kits hit the shelves ready for sale we’ll be sending out announcements.

    If the chassis and suspension points on my trail boss are the same as the regular Silverado why wouldn’t this kit work?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Josh,
      At this point we don’t offer a kit designed for the AT4/Trail Boss models. Reason being while the suspension geometry is the same those models use a different (taller) strut assembly for the 2″ of factory lift above a standard Silverado/Sierra. Our 6″ kits uses a top mounted strut spacer so if installing them on a AT4/Trail Boss they’ll net around 8″ of total lift for that platform which would be too tall for how we designed the suspension-steering-driveline geometry to function properly. We have additional kit such as a 4″ IFS System in the works that will be compatible with the AT4/Trail Boss and sit the ride height similar to a standard Silverado/Sierra with a 6″ lift. Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements

  • Dan Melton says:

    Is this kit compatible with the NHT max trailering packages? I have a ‘19 Silverado High County with the tow package but GM says their factory 2.5″ kit isn’t compatible with the NHT.
    Also any plan for a leveling kit or smaller than 6″ lift?
    Thanks Dan

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Dan,
      thanks for reaching out. Our kits are can be used on vehicle with the factory tow package without issue. At this point we’ve only released the 6″ IFS Systems, but have additional lift kit options/sizes in the works. Keep an eye out for upcoming announcements on our website and social media outlets.

    With the 6in kit on my 2019 high country with factory 22s can I run 37/12.50, not sure on the back spacing ,if so is there any trimming required if so how much

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Bran, thanks for reaching out. Our 6″ system allows for several tire/wheel options to be installed. The factory 22″ wheels should have a 5.94″ backspacing which will work great for fitting the 37×12.50 tires. While we haven’t tested that exact tire/wheel setup, trimming should be minimal for clearance.

    I just bought a 2019 chevy Silverado custom 2wd . I asked the dealerships about lifting it or out sourcing possibly so i don’t void my warranty but no one does it in my area. Any ideas or what should I do?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Matthew, congrats on the new truck. A few points I’ll hit on in response to your message.

      voiding warranty – a lift kit won’t void your truck’s warranty. Magnuson Moss Act ensures the dealer can’t deny warranty of a factory part without proving in a court of law that the failure was caused by aftermarket part being installed. Along with that all BDS kits are tested to the highest standards to ensure quality and driveability. Each BDS kit includes Factory Protection Plus, a comprehensive drivetrain protection plan that has BDS ‘s No Fine Print Warranty on BDS hard parts, FMVSS 126 (ESC System) compliance testing to ensure the kit won’t effect the ESC and a 5year/100k-mile drivetrain warranty to match the OEM warranty in the event they deny warranty for any reason.

      BDS dealer – Not knowing where you are located I’ll point you in the direction of our dealer locator tool to find your nearest BDS dealer/installer, http://bds-suspension.com/distributor-lookup.

      2WD Kits – at this time we haven’t released specific kits for the 2019 Chevy Silverado 1500 2WD models, only the 4WD models at this point. Similar to previous model years of GM trucks we’d expect mounting points between the 2WD-4WD suspension to be the same with the exception of the absense of a front axle, driveshafts and CV shafts. That said we haven’t confirmed 2WD compatibility on the 2019 models yet.

    On the 749H kit, how much will the track width increase on each side? I spoke to someone from BDS on 11.4.2019 and they stated it was 1.5″, but from the comments above its 1/2″ per side. Which is it? Thanks in advance.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Koby,
      Sorry for the confusion on this topic. I just went back to confirm with engineering/tech support and the track with change up front on the 2019-2020 GM1500 IFS kits is just under 1/2″ per side. Not knowing who you spoke with on 11/4 my assumption is they were assuming the kit referenced were for a ’07-18 GM1500 truck which requires increaseing track width around 1-1/2″ per side.

    I just recently purchased a 2018 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 and was looking to lift the truck I see you have 4-6″ lifts for only the 4WD. I currently have a 2WD LT and was wondering if the 4WD will fit on the 2WD or if a 2WD will be available in the near future? Ive also been told by the dealer adding a lift and or dual exhaust will void my warranty after reading other comments here it seems to be false. Please let me know when you can, thank you.

    I have a 2011 Silverado 1500 and I’m looking to get the 6″ lift kit. My understanding is that I can upgrade to the coilovers later. Is this correct? Secondly, do I need to purchase the UCAs with this lift?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Vincent,
      That it correct. While the coilovers and UCAs are great options for next level offroad performance, capability and strength, they are not a requirement when lifting your truck and are available separately if you choose to upgrade them later. The base 6″ kit offers impressive performance and protection along with plenty of comfort and predictable handling on road.
