BDS SUSPENSION SYSTEMS ARE PROTECTED BY THE FACTORY PROTECTION PLUS PROGRAM

Factory Protection Plus
  • 5-year, 100,000 mile drivetrain warranty
  • FMVSS No.126 ESC System compliance
  • BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty

5.5″ Colorado/Canyon Lift Kits: After months of testing, BDS Suspension is excited in introduce the first to market full IFS suspension system for the 2015 Colorado/Canyon platform. This new BDS 5.5” suspension system is designed around the tried-and-true steering knuckle and crossmember technology. Along with the rugged, high clearance design, this new system has passed the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No.126 and has been independently certified to not adversely effect the vehicles factory installed electronic stability control system with the lift installed. That combined with BDS No Fine Print Warranty and a 5-year 100,000-mile drivetrain warranty gives you the peace of mind wherever and however you use and abuse your truck.

This system uses a pair of heavy duty 1/4″ steel high clearance crossmembers to reposition the lower control arms and work in unison with the massive ductile cast iron extended steering knuckles to gain 5.5” of lift.  The crossmembers utilize the factory alignment eccentrics and tie together with a full-width skid plate.  The skid plate protects vital front end components for offroad use and ties the crossmembers together for a extremely rigid subframe. The front differential is relocated to keep CV axle angles at a minimum and function properly with the supplied transfer case indexing ring. This allows for the use of the factory front driveline once lifted. The factory front struts are reutilized with top mounted strut spacers to maintain ride quality and allow for quick installation without the need to disassemble the struts.  Front bump stop extension and sway bar links are included as well as new heavy duty Moog tie rod ends to properly set alignment without trimming the inner tie rods.

In the rear, a block/u-bolt kit sets the new ride height so it is level with the front. BDS offers both the 5500-series hydraulic or Fox 2.0 series gas shocks specifically tuned to maximize the Colorado/Canyon’s performance in any terrain.

If you’re looking to be the first on your block with a lifted 2015 Colorado and want the most out of your truck, BDS has you covered with new 5.5″ IFS lift kits. For more info on the kit and to find a dealer near you head online to bds-suspension.com.

*Additional options including Fox Factory Series 2.5″ Remote Coilovers are in development and will be available as an upgrade option in the future.

BDS Lift Kits now available for 2015 Chevy/GMC 1500 Trucks

2015 GM 1/2-ton 4WD

Coldwater, MI—December 18, 2014— BDS Suspension is now shipping a full line of suspension systems for the 2015 Chevy/GMC 1500 4wd trucks. Available in 2″, 4″, 6″ and 6″ performance coilover systems, BDS Suspension offers suspension options to meet your needs and clear up to 35″ tires. These kits carry over from 2014 models to fit up through the 2015 Chevy/GMC 1500 trucks. As with all BDS kits these include the No Fine Print Warranty and are designed to improve the performance, functionality, and curb appeal of the new 2015 Chevy/GMC 1500s without sacrificing the drivability owners have come to expect.

In addition to kit development, BDS has been working towards independent verification of FMVSS No.126 (electronic stability control system) compliance of all applicable BDS lift kits. Currently BDS is one of the few companies to test the late model Chevy/GMC 1500 suspension lifts and confirmed compliance with FMVSS No.126 requirements. For more on BDS’s FMVSS No.126 compliancy testing see to FMVSS126. As with all BDS Suspension systems these kits are also backed by BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty as well as a 5-year, 60,000mile drivetrain protection plan keeping you safe and keeping your covered for the long haul.

2″ Leveling Kit: The 2″ leveling kit is designed to improve the look and performance of the new GM trucks and clear up to 33″ tires. The kit uses an upper strut mount spacer in combination with a small preload spacer to increase the front ride height to eliminate the factory rake. Unlike other lift/leveling kits on the market for newer GM trucks, this BDS kit is engineered to level the vehicle without maxing out the upper ball joint at full droop, and keeps all factory components within their intended ranges for improved performance without sacrificing front end components.

4″ & 6″ Lift Kit: These suspension systems utilize the tried and true high-clearance IFS suspension design that has made BDS the preferred suspension lift for late model GM trucks. At the heart of these new lift kits are 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. The suspension also works seamlessly with the redesigned electric power steering system that is standard on late model GM trucks. A 3-piece differential drop 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 heavy duty 3-piece skid plate system that ties the front and rear crossmembers together for a rigid subframe. 4″ or 6″ front high pressure gas struts are supplied to improve the ride quality and work with your factory coils for predictable performance. Also included in this kit are replacement tie rod ends, longer sway bar links, cv axle spacers, and brake line brackets.

In the rear BDS offers both block and replacement GlideRide leaf springs for both 4″ and 6″ kits designed to give a level to slightly tail high stance. Also included are longer u-bolts, brake line bracket and your choice of BDS-5500 or Fox 2.0 gas shocks. 6″ Performance Coilover System: 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, 3-piece diff drop kit, sway bar and cv axle correction, heavy duty tie rod ends and your choice of rear block kit or replacement GlideRide leaf springs. This system upgrades the front high pressure gas struts to Fox 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers and rear Fox 2.0 IFP gas shocks. 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
  • High flow piston design with specially formulated race oil
  • External reservoir separates shock oil from high-pressure nitrogen
  • Easy bolt-on installation, coil spring preload set for proper ride height right out of the box. Right height adjustable using BDS spanner tool #129600 (sold separately).

Radius Arm RAM 2500/3500 – 4-Link Conversion Kit

2014-15 Dodge RAM 2500/2013-14 Dodge RAM 3500 4wd trucks

Coldwater, MI— December 17, 2014— In addition to the 2-8″ suspension systems currently offered, BDS Suspension has released a 4-link long arm upgrade for late model RAM HD trucks. Designed to fit 2014-2015 RAM 2500 and 2013-2014 RAM 3500 4WD trucks this 4-link conversion improves drivability and control across all terrains on road and off. This kit allows late model radius arm equipped RAMs running 4-8″ of lift to convert over to the BDS 4-link long arm for added strength and more consistent caster throughout wheel travel for improved handling.

The kit includes all the necessary components to replace the factory (or aftermarket) radius arm setup to a 4-link design. The heart of the 4-link upgrade is a pair of massive frame-mounted brackets precision welded and engineered to position the new upper and lower control arms for optimal suspension geometry on late model RAM HD trucks. The 4-link brackets are fabricated from 1/4″ thick steel and wrap around the frame as well as key off the factory radius arm brackets to create an extremely sturdy mount for the new arms. Removal of the factory radius arm brackets is not required allowing the brackets to stay intact to speed up the installation time. The frame mounts are finished in a durable textured black powder coating and badged with a stainless steel BDS nameplate. 

The upper and lower control arms are built from 2″ OD x 3/16″ wall DOM tubing for the strength to take any abuse you can throw at them. They utilize large 2.5″ OD polyurethane bushings to isolate road vibrations and are formed inward to allow for extra tire clearance while repositioning the front axle slightly forward for increase tire clearance to the backside of the front fenders to improve clearance when turning. These arms are finished in a durable textured black powder coating and use grease fittings for easy servicing. Combined with your current 4-8″ lift, this new 4-link conversion system is designed to improve your late model RAM HDs overall performance, comfort and driveability.

BDS IS Now shipping Lift Kits for 2015 Ram 1500 Trucks

2015 Dodge Ram 1500 4WD

Coldwater, MI—December 2, 2014— BDS Suspension is now shipping a full line of suspension systems for the 2015 Dodge RAM 1500 4wd trucks. Available as 4″, 6″ and 6″ performance systems, BDS Suspension offers suspension options to meet your needs and clear up to 37″ tires. These kits carry over from 2013 models to fit up through the 2015 RAM 1500 trucks. As with all BDS kits these include the No Fine Print Warranty and are designed to improve the performance, functionality, and curb appeal of the new 2015 Ram 1500s without sacrificing the drivability owners have come to expect.

In addition to kit development, BDS has been working towards independent verification of FMVSS No.126 (electronic stability control system) compliance of all applicable BDS lift kits. Currently BDS is one of the few companies to test the late model Dodge Ram suspension lifts and confirmed compliance with FMVSS No.126 requirements. For more on BDS’s FMVSS No.126 compliancy testing see to FMVSS126. As with all BDS Suspension systems these kits are also backed by BDS’s exclusive No Fine Print Warranty as well as a 5-year, 100,000mile drivetrain protection plan keeping you safe and keeping your covered for the long haul. For more on Factory Protection Plus see 560plus.com.

4″ Lift Kits: Designed for the dual purpose ride, this 4″ lift kit offers impressive handling for the driver that wants both on-road drivability and off-road performance. These systems include a pair of high clearance lasercut crossmembers, heavy duty steering knuckles, new tie-rod ends, 3-point differential drop system, differential skid plate, front sway bar link extensions, and a billet aluminum driveshaft spacer. In the rear the kit uses control arm and track bar brackets, sway bar links and your choice of new shocks. Front strut spacers and rear coil spacers are used to retain the factory ride quality while offering a level stance and room for 35″ tires.

6″ Lift Kits: Stepping up to the 6″ lift kit, BDS offers kits ready to tackle any terrain you can throw at it. These kits are designed to fit up to 37″ tires and improve the overall ride quality. These systems includes a pair of high clearance crossmembers, CNC machined ductile iron steering knuckles, heavy duty tie rod ends, 3-point differential drop system, and differential skid plate to lock the rugged subframes together and offer extra offroad protection. Also included is a billet aluminum driveshaft spacer, front and rear extended sway bar links, stainless steel brake lines, bump stop extensions, rear control arm link relocation, rear track bar bracket, front strut/preload spacers, 3″ or 5″ rear Proride coils for your desired stance and your choice of BDS-5500 or Fox 2.0 rear shocks.

6″ Performance C/O Lift Kits: Nothing complements a BDS 6″ suspension system better than the race proven design of Fox 2.5″ remote reservoir coilovers. These have been specifically engineered to fit the 6″ BDS system and feature an external reservoir for increased oil cooling capacity and nitrogen volume for a more consistent and comfortable ride. Other upgrades to the standard BDS 6″ lift kit include front reservoir mount and rear Fox 2.0 shocks all coming together for a suspension package that is build to perform out in the desert, the trail, and on-road. These kits are designed to fit up to 37″ tires.
