Important Notes

  • Disassembly/assembly of the factory torsion bar system requires the use of a special unloading tool. The GM specified tool # is CH48809
  • Compatible with gas or diesel models
  • Compatible with AT4 models
  • Some minor trimming may be necessary to fit certain wheel/tire combination. This is normal with most aftermarket tire/wheel fitment on Chevy/GM trucks and typically consists of trimming the bottom edge of the inner fender shrouds and/or lower corner of front bumper valance. As a rule of thumb, deeper backspacing and shorter/ narrower tires will reduce/eliminate trimming required. Further trimming tips are included at the end of this instruction sheet
  • Compatible with DRW models, use w/ overload rear box kit #011217
Factory Protection Plus
  • 5-year, 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty
  • BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty

Coldwater, MI: BDS offers improved performance in a new smaller lift height with 3" UCA Lift Systems for the 2020 Chevy and GMC 2500HD/3500HD trucks. Designed for simple bolt-on installation, these kits allow clearance for up to 35" tires. At the heart of this new system is a pair of heavy duty tubular upper control arms (UCAs) designed for improved strength and suspension travel. These new control arms are built from thick wall 1.5" DOM tubing, and use an indexed ball joint cup to reposition the upper ball joints to allow more droop travel. These arms come fully assembled right out of the box with high quality greaseable ball joints and rubber bushings for long life, quiet operation and superior corrosion resistance over uniballs and heims. Along with the control arms, a pair of indexed cast steel torsion bar keys are supplied up front to lift vehicle. A small differential relocation kit is supplied to correct CV axle operating angles without effecting ground clearance. To eliminate sway bar interference, a pair of sway bar relocation brackets is used which maintains proper operating angle. In the rear a 2" block and u-bolt kit is used to create a level to slightly tail high stance when unloaded. Rounding out these kits are a pair of specially tuned FOX 2.0 performance series IFP shocks ready to soak up the terrain. Take your HD to the next level with BDS Suspension.
