Factory Protection Plus
  • 5-year, 60,000 mile drivetrain warranty
  • FMVSS No.126 ESC System compliance
  • BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty

2.5″ Leveling Kits: This kit is a great option for Tacoma owners looking to level the stance of their truck and add tire clearance for larger tires. The kit consists of a pair of top mounted strut spacers built from 3/16″ steel, fully welded and finished in a textured black powder coat. The kit is 100% bolt-on with no strut disassembly required. Rear block and shocks are available for this kit. Up to 32″ tires can be installed

4″ IFS Lift Kits: Stepping up to 4″ lifts, BDS offers 4″ complete IFS system including everything necessary to modify the suspension and drivetrain with room for 33″ tires. The kit includes a pair of laser cut 1/4″ steel crossmembers along with precision machined ductile cast iron steering knuckles to maintain stock-like handling characteristics and compatibile with the factory ESC system. Also included is a full width belly skid plate, top mounted strut spacer to retain ride quality, differential drop brackets to correct CV and driveshaft operating angles, brake line relocation, bump stops, rear blocks, u-bolts and your choice of BDS 5500-series hydraulic or Fox 2.0 performance gas shocks specially tuned for this application.

6″ IFS Lift Kits: At the heart of this 6″ lift kit is a pair of ductile iron replacement steering knuckles and high-clearance crossmembers. These components establish a suspension geometry that not only performs well on and off-road, but are compliant with the factory traction control systems. A multipoint differential relocation kit securely repositions the front differential to correct CV axle angle while allowing for the use of the stock front driveshaft. Front end drivetrain components are protected by the full width skid plate that ties the front and rear crossmembers together for a rigid subframe. Top mounted strut spacers are used along with preload spacers to improve handling performance. Also included in this kit are replacement bump stops, brake line brackets, 4″ rear block kit to level the stance and your choice of BDS-5500 series hydraulic or Fox 2.0 performance gas shocks specifically tuned to enhance the ride quality and performance. This system allows for up to 35″ tires to be installed.

6″ Performance Coilover Systems: The 6″ Performance System includes all the high quality components supplied in the 6? lift kit from the high clearance cross members, ductile iron steering knuckles, multipoint diff drop kit, full width skid plate brake lines brackets, along with the 4″ rear block & u-bolt kit. This system upgrades the front strut spacers to Fox 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers and rear Fox 2.0 IFP gas shocks tuned specifically to the this system to offer improved performance and ride quality in any terrain. Some of the features of the Fox 2.5 remote C/Os include:

  • Smooth-bore, clear coated, zinc plated alloy body
  • Black anodized 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounting components
  • 7/8? hard chrome plated heat treated alloy steel shaft

  • Wayne Hornke says:

    I’m looking for a 4 inch suspension lift kit for my 2016 4×4 tocoma

  • John Cabrera says:

    what particular components are different because I’m getting a little itchy and want to lift my truck asap..I heard that the difference was just some of the bolt sizes in the lower control arms. Is that correct? Is there any target date for the revised kit to be available?

  • mark says:

    2016 toyota tacoma 4×4 limited waiting for 6inch lift kit when will i be able to obtain one? 954 270-3233

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      There are a few minor changes to the suspension on the 2005-2015 vs 2016 Tacoma. Our engineering team is working on the updated kit and it will be available soon. Once available we’ll be posting up a new product announcement, social media posts, etc.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Mark, the 2016 Tacoma kits are now available, see more on the official announcement at

      • Mark Gordon says:

        Bought it and installed it.drove with it today for the first time.r tire hits inner fender when turning.Is this normal?

        • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

          That would depend on the wheel/tire setup you went with, we list our recommended wheel/tire specs on our website. Due to the tight fender shape it is common to need to do some fender/valance trimming on the Tacomas and potentially trimming the body mount at the backside of the front fenders.

  • Jonathan says:

    Do you have a 2.5″ kit that will work on the 2016 Tacoma

  • Ryan Cox says:

    I’ve very interested in your 4 inch kit, however, I would very much like to use coilovers. To your knowledge are there any “other” companies out there that I could incorporate “their” coilover into your 4 inch kit? Thanks.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Not right off hand, Ryan. Currently we only offer the Fox coilovers for the Tacoma pre-set for 6” of lift. The Fox 2.5 C/O has a threaded body and ride height can be adjusted using our spanner wrench. I believe on the Tacoma C/Os the can be used as low as 4.5-5” of lift to still allow sufficient travel, I’d recommend contacting BDS tech support for more on the topic, or (517) 279-2135

  • Ben Cearley says:

    I have a 2014 Tacoma and I’m wanting to squat the back end a little bit. Do ya’ll carry a kit to squat the truck or can i buy separate front and rear suspension lifts?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Ben, is the truck lifted? If so how much? We don’t offer a lower kit for the Tacoma, but assuming its running a lift kit you could use a smaller block kit in the rear to get a desired tail low stance you’re after.

  • Brody says:

    Same story here I want a 6 inch lift for my Tacoma .I see Pro comp has one on 4 wheel parts website they are using part number EXPK5073B but it says 05-16 Tacoma so I am not sure yet. Are you close not the route I want to go, but whoever gets it first has my money..

  • Beau hunter says:

    Any word on when the 6 inch coil over lift kit will be available for the 2016 toyota tacoma? Thinking of buying one soon and want to lift it if did, thank you.

  • Adam Rohr says:

    Yes. Please. Need. 2016. 6″C/O kit. ASAP.

  • Ian says:

    Any update fir the 2016? Also will a 5100 bilstein for a 2015 fit the 2015?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Ian, at this point we have quite released the kits for the 2016 Tacoma. As soon as they are available we’ll release more info and add it to our website. The struts used on the 2016 suspension are the same as the 2005-2015 models so the Bilstein 5100s would fit

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Ian, the 2016 Tacoma kits are now available, see more on the official announcement at

  • AJB says:

    2016 Tacoma TRD Off-road waiting for the new lift. Any news on the release date yet?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      We’re expecting the 2016 Tacoma kits to be available very soon, our engineers have been working on making the updates from the 2005-2015 kits to offer a 2016 version. Company policy dictates we don’t discuss kit info, release date, pricing, etc until parts are on the shelf and we’re ready to ship.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      AJB, the 2016 Tacoma kits are now available, see more on the official announcement at

  • David says:

    Any word on the 2016, 6 inch coilover? I’m dying waiting. I’ve had the 4K saved since last year.

    Can I get on a waiting list?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey David, hang in there, the 2016 Tacoma kits will be launched very soon. We’ll be sending out an official new product announcement once parts are on the shelf available for sale. We don’t have a wait list, but you’ll be able to order and we’ll be able to ship out same day once available

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      David, the 2016 Tacoma kits are now available, see more on the official announcement at

  • Richard DePietro says:

    r the 2016 4in suspension BDS available yet.

  • SAM says:

    The wait is killing me… So excited

  • Dsn says:

    I have a 2015 taco with 6″ bds lift. Will the bilstein 5100 and the eibach coils fit this application? I’m trying to regain some of the lift I lost when I added an aftermarket front bumper ( 180lbs)

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Our standard 6” kit is designed with a top mount spacer + preload spacer to net you 6” of lift. The preload spacer likely won’t work with the Bilstein 5100, but the top mounted spacers will and you could compensate for the ride height loss using the adjustments on the struts. That said we don’t recommend setting the truck ride height above 6” of lift as it may cause premature wear of front end components and have issues aligning. Another option would be to upgrade your strut spacers to FOX 2.5 remote coilovers. They use a threaded body that can be adjusted up to compensate for the extra ride height needed and come with Eibach coils preinstalled, #883-02-048

  • Nicholas says:

    I have a ’09 Tacoma, with a 6″ Rough Country suspension lift kit. Will the 6″ coil over still work to replace the rough country?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Nicolas, the FOX 2.5 coilovers are designed to to provide 6″ of lift and should bolt right in place of your current top mounted strut spacer setup. #883-02-048 is the part number for the pre-tuned 6″ FOX 2.5 coilovers with remote reservoir.

  • Cody says:

    Does BDS make anything bigger than 6″ lift for 2017 Tacoma.

  • Charles says:

    I’m having trouble deciding whether to put a 4” or 6” lift on my 2010 Tacoma, what is the lift size in your product video?

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey Charles, the white Tacoma at the top of this announcement as well as the silver and red Tacomas from the video are fitted with 6″ lifts on 35″ tires. As far as deciding between the 4″ and 6″ lifts, that really just comes down to what size tire you want to fit. Both kits are based off the same core components (crossmembers, knuckles, diff relocation, skid plate) so if you decide to change right height later on you’ll only need to swap the strut spacer and rear blocks to do so. The 6″ is definitely our more popular seller to all fitment of 34-35″ tires, the 4″ kit will fit 33″ tires.

  • William says:

    I have a 2014 Tacoma (xsp-x) double cab with a leveling kit. I have been hunting around for a 6” lift. The only problem is that my truck is two wheel drive. Do you guys offer a 6” lift for this? If so I would love to purchase one.

    • Carter @ BDS Suspension says:

      Hey William, thanks for your interest in BDS Suspension. While we designed the kits around the 4WD Tacoma, they will fit the 2WD Tacoma as well. One thing worth mentioning is on the 2WD applications its common to length the rear driveshaft slightly when installing a 6″ lift, any driveline shop will be able to take care of this.
