Coldwater, MI: Now available from BDS Suspension, 4”, 6” and 6” coilover options for the 2019 RAM 1500 models equipped with factory 22” wheels. These truck use larger wheel bearings that require larger bore steering knuckles. These new suspension lift options are based around the tried and true high clearance technology that has made BDS the go to for RAM suspension lifts, now offered with a larger hub bore option. These kits join the standard RAM 1500 kits to offer several lift options to improve the performance, capability, and curb appeal and won’t void your factory warranty.

4”/6” IFS Lift Systems: At the heart of these new 4” and 6” IFS lift systems BDS are 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 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 to secure the front differential and keep CV axle angles at a minimum. A billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer is also supplied along with longer hardware to allow the reinstallation of the factory driveshaft. Additional ride height on the 4” lifts comes from an easy to install top mounted strut spacer to maintain ride quality and handling characteristics. On the 6” lifts you have the option of a combination top mounted strut spacer and preload spacers designed to not over extend the suspension during droop travel.. Rounding out the front of this kit are a pair of stainless steel braided extended brake line and sway bar relocation brackets.

In the rear of this 6” lift system the factory coil springs are replaced with 5” ProRide dual rate coil springs to lift and level the stance. With the additional ride height the rear suspension geometry is corrected with control arm relocation brackets, a bolt-on rear track bar relocation bracket to recenter the axle, extended length sway bar links to correct operating angle, and bump stop extensions to properly limit up travel. The rear of these kits are rounded out with your choice of specially tuned NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks to offer improved damper performance. 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. 

6” Coilover Systems: These coilover systems up the ante offering next level performance. In place of the factory strut + strut spacer these systems upgrade to FOX 2.5 factory race series coilovers and are available with the options DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment. These coilovers are preset for the correct lift height right out of the box to provide optimal performance and direct bolt-in replacement for the factory strut assemblies. They feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs and black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts along with remove reservoirs with mounting brackets. The optional DSC adjustment technology builds on the racing pedigree of the FOX 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers adding easy tuning 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 for your particular needs. Adjustments can be made by simply twisting the "gray" high speed and "orange" 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. In the rear of all the coilover systems BDS specs FOX 2.0 performance series IFP rear shocks. These aluminum bodied shocks offer improved performance and faster heat dissipation in rough terrain. Shocks have been specially tuned to optimize your truck’s capability.

All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS’s No Fine Print Warranty, ESC System compatibility and a 5year-100mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 RAM 1500 truck with this new 6” lift system from BDS Suspension.
