Important Notes

  • U-bolts will not work vehicles equipped with top-mounted overload springs or add-a-leafs.
  • Compatible with gas or diesel models.
  • Compatible with standard models as well as AT4 models.
  • Some minor trim will be required with certain wheel/tire combination. This is normal with most aftermarket tire/wheel fitment on Chevy/GM trucks. Trimming will normally included 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.

At the heart of this new 5" lift systems 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.

In place of the factory steering knuckles are a pair of specially designed ductile iron replacement steering knuckles are supplied to maintain proper steering geometry for ESC system compatibility. The front differential is repositioned with BDS's multipoint relocation bracket system to secure the front differential to keep CV axle angles at a minimum. To help maximize clearance a pair of specially designed torsion bar relocations brackets are supplied to mount to the lower control arms to retain the factory high clearance frame mounted crossmember. A pair of BDS-branded sway bar drop brackets used to correct the operating angle of the factory sway bar along with extended length braided stainless steel brake lines. Rounding out the front of this kit are NX2-series twin tube gas or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP shocks.

In the rear of this 5" lift system, 3" lift blocks and longer u-bolts to lift and level the stance.

  • Xavier Ayala says:

    Will this 5” kit eventually receive a coilover conversion kit? Thanks,

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Xavier, our plan at this point is to offer the coilover conversion at (2) ride heights 2.5-3″ and 6.5″. Majority of the base components are the same between the 5″ and 6.5″ kits, however due to the design of the UCA/LCA they will not be recommended for use at the 5″ height.

  • Brian Fisk says:

    Does the rear lift come with a 3” block or 4.5”?
    I’m thinking of using a 3” and setting the front to 4” if this kit will accommodate this set. (2022 gmc 3500 hd Denali srw)

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hi Brian, the 5″ kit uses a 4.5″ rear block. The bracketry (crossmembers, diff drops, knuckles, etc) are all designed to correct geometry at the 5-6.5″ lift height so its not recommended to set the front ride height lower. For more on the topic contact our tech support team at (517) 279-2135

  • Tony P says:

    Carter – Is that a 9″ wide wheel, and what offset is the 5″ lift truck shown above running? Thanks in advance!

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Tony,
      The truck with the gray wheels is running the 5″ kit, 37×12.50 Nitto Ridges and 20×9 Fuel Hostage IIIs (5″ backspacing)
