2015 Chevy/GMC 2500HD 4WD 6.5″ Lift Kits

Coldwater, MI—April 7, 2014—BDS Suspension expands its suspension listings with 6.5″ high clearance systems to fit the 2015 Chevy/GMC 2500HD 4WD trucks. This suspension system is designed to maximize ground clearance while creating the ideal suspension geometry for improved offroad performance without sacrificing on-road driveability. These kits have been trail tested and proven as the kit carries over from the 2011-2014 HD applications and allows clearance for up to 37″ tires.

The 6.5″ lift system is designed to integrate flawlessly with the new electronic stability control (ESC) systems. Up front the kit utilizes a pair of one-piece 1/4″ steel high clearance crossmembers, differential relocation brackets, heavy duty differential skid plate, support brace, and front skid plate to create a sturdy subframe and improved offroad protection. A pair of CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles dwarf the factory units and span the extra distance without increasing track width. The torsion bars are kept tight to the chassis with a pair of lower A-arm mounted relocation brackets with integrated bump stop extensions to maximize ground clearance without the need to lower the torsion bar crossmember as with other kits. The kit also includes new stainless steel brakes lines, extended sway bar links,  and your choice of BDS 5500 or Fox 2.0 gas shocks at all 4 corners.

Out back the kit is offered with 3″ or 5″ rear block kits to achieve your designed stance. Available for both top mounted overload equipped trucks and models without, the 3″ kit uses the standard rear block while the 5” option uses an integrated bump stop pad and u-bolt flip kit for a stronger design and maximum clearance. As with all BDS suspension systems this 6.5″ high clearance lift kit is backed by the Factory Protection Plus Program offering BDS’s exclusive no fine print warranty and a 5-year 60,000 mile drivetrain warranty free of charge.
