BDS LIFT KITS & ACCESSORIES NOW AVAILABLE FOR 2015 RAM 3500

2013-2015 DODGE RAM 1-TON 4WD

Coldwater, MI—May 5, 2015— BDS Suspension has now test fit and confirmed fitment of all current suspension systems for 2015 RAM 3500 4WD trucks. With 2″, 4″, 5.5-6″, and 8″ lift kits currently available, BDS offers a variety of suspension options for late model RAM HD trucks designed to improve off-road performance while maintaining on-highway drivability.

2″ Leveling Kit:This 2″ leveling kit uses a pair of heavy-duty fabricated steel coil spacers to level the stance and allow for up to 35″ tires to be installed. The spacers are pitched and indexed to work with the unique coil mount design of the late model RAM HD trucks and are secured to the coil bucket to maintain proper indexing when the coil springs are unloaded. Extended polyurethane bump stops are used to control suspension compression along with your choice of 5500-series or Fox 2.0 shocks.

3″ Radius Arm Lift Kit:The 3″ radius arm system gives all the benefits of a high performance system at a lower height designed for 35″ tires. Along with progressive rate front coil springs, the kit includes heavy duty tubular radius arms with large 3.5″ bushings, a solid stock adjustable track bar, new spherical bushing swaybar links, 2″ rear block kit and your choice of shocks.

4-6″ Radius Arm Lift Kits:These kits are designed to retain the factory radius arms by relocating the frame mounting location using a pair of 1/4″ steel drop brackets to maintain suspension geometry. The drop brackets key off the factory mounts and tie into the frame for extra strength. Also included in the kit are specially designed progressive rate ProRide front coil springs offering improved performance across all terrains. A heavy duty fabricated track bar bracket, forged drop pitman arm, extended bump stops, brake line relocation brackets, high clearance tranny crossmember and indexing ring (5.5-6″ kits only) rear blocks or leaf springs (5.5-6″ kits only) and your choice of shocks at all 4 corners giving clearance for up to 37″ tires.

4-6″ 4-link Lift Kits: These kits are designed to convert the factory radius arm over to a stronger 4-link design offering improved stability, handling and articulation. The kit is designed with 1/4″ fabricated 4-link brackets that key into the factory radius arm pockets for added strength. The 4-link design improves drivability by limited castor change to less than 1-degree throughout wheel travel. These kits also include progressive rate ProRide coil springs, track bar bracket, forged drop pitman arm, extended bump stops, brake line relocation brackets, high clearance tranny crossmember and t-case indexing ring (5.5-6″ kits only) rear blocks or leaf springs (5.5-6″ kits only) and your choice of shocks at all 4 corners giving clearance for up to 37″ tires.

8″ 4-Link Lift Kit: Get the look and the performance with BDS 8″ lift kits for the new RAM 3500. Designed around a proven 4-link design this system converts the factory radius arms over to a stronger 4-link design offering improved stability, handling and articulation. The kit is designed with 1/4″ fabricated 4-link brackets that key into the factory radius arm pockets for added strength. The 4-link design improves drivability by limited castor change to less than 1-degree throughout wheel travel. Lift is provided by a pair of progressive rate ProRide coil springs while a track bar bracket recenter the from axles. A forged drop pitman arm corrects steering angles, a high clearance transmission crossmember is supplied along with a t-case indexing ring. Extended stainless steel brake lines, bump stops and spherical sway bar links are supplied along with all the necessary hardware. In the rear a triple stage leaf pack and 2″ rear block maximizes capability and towing capacity without effecting ride quality. The kit includes your choice of shocks at all 4 corners and allows fitment of up to 40″ tires.

AVAILABLE ACCESSORIES

BDS is also offering a number of accessories to fit the late model RAM 3500 4WD trucks. Both single and dual steering stabilizer kits are available to meet your on-road and off-road performance needs. Available in both 5500-series (white body) and 9500-series (brushed stainless body) the stabilizers improve drivability by reducing front end shimmy caused by oversized tires and mount above the tie-rod for extra protection when offroad. In addition to steering stabilizers, BDS offers a heavy duty adjustable front track bar to allow you to dial in the the front axle positioning. Constructed from 1-3/8″ solid steel stock this new adjustable track bar is built to handle on and off-road abuse and uses a 1-3/8″-12 fine threaded pinch bolt design turnbuckle to allow easy tuning to properly recenter the front axle for a range of lift heights. The track bar is formed for proper clearance around critical front end components and features gusseted ends for additional rigidity. The ends utilize high-durometer polyurethane bushings with thick-walled steel sleeves for strength and reliability.

All BDS kits are backed by Factory Protection Plus, a comprehensive drivetrain warranty that brings together BDS No Fine Print Warranty and a 5 year – 60,000 mile (PLUS) drivetrain protection coverage, included at no extra cost. For more info on available lift kit options and accessories for the 2013-2015 RAM 3500 4WD trucks, head to BDS Suspension or call (517) 279-2135.

      Hey Dan,
      Thanks for the interest in BDS. We offer several kits to fit your RAM 3500 dually (with rear leaf springs, not airbags). You’ll be able to fit 35” tires on just a 2” leveling kit, however some customers opt for the 3” radius arm or 4” kits for additional clearance. Here’s a link to a truck running the BDS 3” radius arm system (w/ dual shock hoop) on 35” tires https://blog.bds-suspension.com/?attachment_id=10688. To see others BDS equipped RAMs head to our customer gallery at http://bds-suspension.com/bar

      While we don’t expect any suspension/chassis changes between the 2013-2015 to the 2016 model year RAM 3500 trucks, at this point in time we have not test fit kits on the new 2016 RAM 3500 so we don’t have them listed.

      Hey Nick,
      While we don’t expect any changes between the 2013-2015 and 2016 RAM 3500s (w/ rear leaf), at this point our engineers have not had the opportunity to test fit and confirm compatibility of 2016 RAM 3500 kits which is why we haven’t listed them on our website. We’ve had several BDS dealers get their hands on 2016 models and installed our kits on them, but until our R&D team confirms, we won’t have them listed.

    Hey BDS. I need a lift for my 2016 Ram 3500 Mega cab with leaf spring rear.
    Would love to fit 37’s.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Samuel, this is an older announcement, all these kits have been verified for use on the 2016 RAM 3500 trucks as well. 37s can fit with as little as 4” of lift with if you follow our wheel/tire recommendations but more commonly with our 6” kits.

    Will any of these kits work on a 2016 ram 5500?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Frank, while some of our RAM 2500/3500 suspension components may cross over to the RAM 5500 trucks, we haven’t had the opportunity to test fit so we can’t say whether or not they would work on there.

    Hey BDS I have a 2016 duelly megacab with auto level air ride. Do u have a 4-6″ lift that will retain the air ride set up? And if no r u guys planning on fitting something for this in the near future?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Nathan, thanks for reaching out to us. Unfortunately we don’t offer any options for the RAM 3500 with rear air ride currently. Company policy dictates we can’t discuss new product development details until parts are on the shelf available and released for sale.

    Does your 8 inch ram 3500 kit fit on a diesel only or will it work on a 6.4 hemi model???? If not are you going to come out with a gas option..

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Steve,
      Thanks for your interest in BDS Suspension. As far as the 8″ kit it is designed to fit the diesel trucks only due to the spring rate of the front coil springs. At this time our engineering dept hasn’t released a gas version of the 8″ kit and it hasn’t been approved for use on gas trucks. That said we have had customers use the 8″ diesel system (minus the front coils) and swap in our 5.5″ front gas coils + 2″ coil spacers to lift the gas trucks.

    Your products are great, very pleased with my YJ lift. I have a 3500 dually with rear air, really hoping to see something from you guys in the future. Looking for 2″ in the back. I’d pony up for a full leaf replacement, something heavy to help control axle wrap.

    Thanks!

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Chris, at this point we’re not offering any options for the rear Air Ride RAM 3500 trucks. That said been seeing more and more interest in them lately. Our initial focus was on the standard leaf sprung RAM 3500 as those sell in much higher quantities than the air ride equipped trucks. Up to this point we’ve released kit options for the air ride RAM 1500 and the rear air ride RAM 2500. Per company policy we don’t discuss new kit development details, kit info or expected release dates until parts are on the shelf available for sale.

      Hey George, I’m sorry to hear you’re having trouble reaching us to resolve your issue. Our sales/tech support departments can assist you with, not knowing which number you’re trying to contact us through I’d recommend contacting sales/tech support at (517) 279-2135 or sales-bds@sporttruckusainc.com for assistance. The best time to reach them is earlier in the day before noon (EST) as the call volume is heavier in the afternoon. Personally I’m limited on my resources to answer inquiries and unable to assist with warranty claims from the marketing department here on the BDS Blog.

    Will your 2″ level kit with the Fox 2.0 shocks fit a 2011 Ram 3500 2wd (two wheel drive) mega cab.?

    Reply
    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Tanner,
      The 2WD and 4WD RAM trucks use a different suspension design. Our kits are designed for the 4WD RAM trucks only. We don’t offer anything to fit your 2011 RAM 3500 2WD.
