2016 RAM 2500 Lift Kits:

BDS Suspension is now shipping suspension lifts for the 2016 RAM 2500 4WD trucks. Available in 2″, 3″, 4″, and 5.5- 6″ lift heights with other sizes coming soon, these new kits are designed to improve the performance, functionality, and curb appeal of your late model RAM HD while retaining the handling characteristics and drivability RAM owners have come to expect. All kits are offer with your choice of BDS 5500-series hydraulic shocks as well as precision tuned Fox 2.0 gas shocks for superior performance.

2″ Leveling Kit: The 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 gas shocks. [see more]

3″ Radius Arm Lift Kit (diesel only): The 3″ radius arm system gives all the benefits of a high performance system at a lower height designed for 35? tires.

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 gas or diesel engine specific progressive rate ProRide front coil springs offering improved performance across all terrains. Heavy duty fabricated front and rear track bar brackets, forged drop pitman arm, extended bump stops, brake line relocation brackets, high clearance tranny crossmember and indexing ring (5.5-6″ kits only) rear ProRide coil springs, sway bar links and your choice of shocks at all 4 corners giving clearance for up to 37″ tires. [see more]

The 4-link design improves drivability by limited castor change to less than 1-degree throughout wheel travel. These kits also include gas or diesel engine specific progressive rate ProRide coil springs, front and rear 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 ProRide coil springs, sway bar links and your choice of shocks at all 4 corners giving clearance for up to 37″ tires. [see more]

BDS 3″ Performance COilover System for ’03-13 RAM HD Trucks

Coldwater, MI— February 20, 2015— BDS Suspension ups the ante with new 3″ performance coilover systems for 2003-2013 Dodge Ram 2500 and 2003-2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4wd diesel trucks adding to its current offerings of 6″ and 8″ performance coilover systems. Designed to offer the ultimate performance offroad this new system brings together specially tuned Fox factory-series 2.5 remote coilovers with BDS’s 3″ performance system for superior capability, ride quality, and high speed performance with room to clear 35″ tires.

The new ride height comes from a pair of specially engineered Fox 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers designed for the ultimate performance right out of the box. These Fox coilovers feature:

  • Smooth-bore and honed seamless alloy body
  • Black anodized 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounting components
  • 7/8″ heat treated steel carbon shaft
  • High flow piston design with specially formulated race oil
  • 3″ Eibach coil preloaded for proper ride height
  • 2.5″ smooth bore and honed seamless reservoir
  • Bolt-on installation and easy adjustability (using #129600 spanner wrench)

These coilovers are built to perform on the front of Cummins-powered RAMs installing in place of the factory coil springs using BDS’s new heavy duty upper and lower mounting brackets. These brackets not only create a sturdy top mount at the frame with room for the reservoir, but also include weld-in reinforcements at the axle able to continually withstand whatever abuse your RAM HD is subjected to.

In addition to the coilovers new heavy duty tubular upper and lower control arms are supplied to reposition the front axle and adjust for proper caster and pinion angles. The arms feature durometer specific dual fluted polyurethane bushings for quiet, durable performance and easy servicing. To recenter the front axle laterally with the lift installed, BDS includes a new heavy duty adjustable track bar. The 1-3/8″ solid steel track bar is a huge improvement to the factory unit and features reinforced ends and a pinch bolt style turnbuckle for easy adjustment. New longer sway bar links are supplied to replace the failure prone factory stem style links to a eye-to-eye for increased strength and improved range of motion.

In the rear a small tapered 2″ block and new black e-coated u-bolts are used to level the stance and correct rear pinion angle. Rounding out this kit are a pair of Fox 2.0 performance IFP gas shocks for improved dampening capabilities.

HammerheadRAM-24

Project Trucks: Hammerhead Armor RAM

Hammerhead Armor has been in the business for a number of years, manufacturing quality bumpers and offroad armor for everything from full-size trucks to Jeep applications. Based out of Bay Springs, MS these southern boys build their products right here in USA. In an industry where most manufacturers tout their latest products on decked out company rigs, Hammerhead was in need of a new truck to use for dealer stops and display at events. After getting the green light they picked up a brand spankin’ new 2015 RAM 2500 Cummins and worked on plans to turn it into a bad ass show piece, something capable of performing up to the high standards their bumpers are built to. Initial plans called for a lift kit, larger wheels and tires, body armor, and performance mods and with that Project Armament was born.

The first step to this truck’s transformation was the body armor. A Hammerhead pre-runner front bumper was fitted along with a Warn M15000 winch and Rigid LED lighting. Out back a matching rear bumper was installed along with recessed lighting. Along with that a set of Hammerhead running boards were installed for rocker protection and easier access into the cab. With this truck spending so much time traveling around the country the guys needed a smooth ride and predictable handling so anyone could drive it with ease. To accomplish this the guys went with a BDS 6” 4-Link Conversion System with Fox shocks and dual steering stabilizer which opened up plenty of room for 37×12.50×20 Toyo R/Ts mounted up on 20×10 BMF Novakanes. Bushwacker extend-a-flares were fitted to help keep the body clean and the bed received the full line-X treatment. Up top a roof mounted 50” Rigid light bar was installed for extra trail visibility and a Trex x-metal mesh grille was fitted for a custom look. The axles were regeared to a 4.56 ratio from Nitro Grear & Axle and a new high capacity rear diff cover was installed. The stock 6.7L Cummins received attention in the form of an Edge Products juice w/ attitude cts  programmer, AFe cold air intake, AFe intercooler tubes and a MBRP exhaust system boosting the output to around 500hp and 900lb/ft of torque.

With the vinyl wrap installed this 2015 RAM 2500 is a head turner out on the street and a bad ass calling card for Hammerhead Armor. We’re looking forward to seeing it our over the next several years at shows and events touring the country. For more on this rig head to BDS’s Facebook Page or check out Hammerhead Armor.

2011-2015 Chevy/GMC 2500HD 4WD 4.5″ Lift Kits

Coldwater, MI—January 12, 2015— BDS Suspension expands its suspension offerings with new 4.5″ high clearance no torsion bar drop suspension systems for the 2011-2015 Chevy/GMC 2500HD 4WD trucks. Much like the larger 6.5″ systems currently offered these new 4.5″ lift kits are designed to maximize ground clearance, improve offroad capability and and perform flawlessly on the highway at a more modest lift height able to clear 35″ tires.

The 4.5″ 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 BDS-branded 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 position off the stock upper arm and relocated lower arm mounts without increasing track width. To further increase the ground clearance over other kits this 4.5″ system tucks the torsion bars up tight to the chassis using a pair of torsion bar relocation brackets that key off the factory lower A-arm. This design maximizes break over ground clearance to keep you from getting high centered offroad as well as gives a clean streamline appearance. Extended DOT compliant braided stainless steel brake lines are supplied to all full suspension travel, longer links to allow the sway bar to function properly and your choice of BDS 5500 or Fox 2.0 gas shocks at all 4 corners.

Out back the kit is offered with 2″ or 3″ rear block and u-bolt kits to achieve your designed stance. As with all BDS suspension systems this new 4.5″ 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.
