Coldwater, MI: With an all new truck comes an all new suspension. BDS is excited to announce new 6” IFS systems for the all new 2019 GMC Denali 1500 trucks. These systems are based off the widely popular lift systems for the redesigned 2019 Chevy Silverado and GMC Sierra 1500 4WD trucks, now specially designed for compatibility with Adaptive Ride Control, this system is standard on new Denali 1500 models. Based off the tried and true high clearance technology this new 6” IFS system retains the on road comfort and handling Denali owners have come to expect while improving ground clearance, offering more offroad protection and allowing clearance for 35” 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 to these standards with 35” tires.

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.  Additional ride height on this particular kit comes from a set of top mounted steel fabricated strut spacers to mount onto the factory Adaptive Ride Control strut assemblies along with new sensor brackets to retain functionality of the system. 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 supplied are brake line and ABS line brackets allow the retain use of factory brake lines. Rounding out this kit is a set of rear shocks extension brackets to correct shock positioning and retain functionality with the rear Adaptive Ride Control shocks. 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-100,000mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 GMC Denali with this new 6” lift system from BDS Suspension.
