BDS Suspension is now shipping a full line of suspension systems for the 2016 Ford F150 4wd trucks. Available in 2.5″, 4″ and 6″ systems, BDS Suspension offers suspension options to meet your needs and clear up to 37″ tires. These kits carry over from 2015 models to fit up through the 2016 Ford F150 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 2016 Ford F150s 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.

2.5″ Leveling Kit: BDS offers a 2.5″ leveling kit designed to eliminate the factory rake while improving the trucks all around performance and allowing larger wheels and tires to be installed. The kit integrates a new top mounted strut spacer in combination with a pre-load spacer to raise the front end while improving the handling and stability. This 2-piece strut spacer system is designed to allow the suspension to fully cycle through wheel travel without maxing out the upper ball joints as is the case with taller 1-piece strut spacer kits on the market. An optional 1″ rear block kit and rear shocks are also available, this kit allows for up to 35″ tires to be installed.
4″ and 6″ IFS Lift Kits: These new lift systems are based off the tried and true 2009-2014 BDS lift kits, but have been redesigned to fit on the updated 2015-2016 F150 chassis. These new lift kits are engineered to the highest standard, using quality materials built right here in the USA. The kit offers a smooth ride and reliable on-road handling coupled with impressive off-road performance and clearance for larger tires. The 4″ and 6″ systems utilize high clearance one-piece laser cut 1/4″ steel crossmembers, CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles, multipoint differential relocation brackets, heavy duty differential skid plate, 4″ or 6″ upper strut mount spacers to retain the OE ride quality, sway bar relocation brackets, new alignment cam bolts, and a billet aluminum driveshaft spacer. In the rear a taller lift block and new u-bolts is supplied to replace the factory 1.25″ block to eliminate stacking blocks. Rear brake line extensions and your choice of rear BDS-5500 series or Fox 2.0 shocks round out these kits. The 4″ system allows for up to 35″ tires to be installed while the 6″ system fits up to 37″ tires. These lift kits have been designed, tested, and independently confirmed to integrate flawlessly with the new electronic stability control (ESC) systems and meet FMVSS No.126 compliancy safety standards.
4″ and 6″ Performance Coilover Systems: The 4″ and 6″ performance coilover systems bring together the safety and capability of BDS’s 6″ lift kit with uncompromising performance of FOX factory series 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers and rear Fox 2.0 IFP shocks for true blend of on-road comfort and offroad performance. These systems include all the components of the standard 4″ or 6″ IFS systems with heavy duty high clearance crossmember, ductile iron steering knuckles, differential skid plate, sway bar relocation, diff relocation and more. In place of top mounted strut spacers and rear BDS-5500 series shocks these systems use FOX factory series 2.5 coilovers and rear 2.0 IFP gas shocks for exceptional performance and ride quality on any terrain.
The FOX factory series 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers come pre-tuned with Eibach coil springs for impressive high speed offroad performance and the coilovers are preset for 4″ or 6″ of lift right out of the box to speed up installation. Features 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 out of the box
4″ DSC Coilover Systems: BDS ups the ante with new DSC coilover systems for the newer Ford F150 trucks. Currently only offered for the 4? lifts, these DSC (dual speed compression) coilovers takes your trucks performance to the next level with adjustable dampening allowing you to dial in your optimal performance in any terrain, on road of off. The coilovers themselves are FOX factory series 2.5 coilovers with a remote DSC reservoir. The come ready to bolt in and tuned for impressive performance tailored specifically to work with the BDS 4″ suspension lift. The DSC brings a new level of freedom to easily dial in the ride quality to soak up the harsh unpredictable terrain offroad while still providing a plush ride on pavement. The DSC has 12 adjustment points for the high speed compression as well as 10 adjustment points for the low speed compression allowing you to make large or small changes to further improve your performance. Adjustments can be made by simply twisting the “blue” high speed and “gold” low speed compression knobs located on the end of the remote reservoir of the FOX 2.5 coilovers. No tools or shop adjustments needed, allowing you to tune the suspension out on the trail. Along with DSC coilovers these kits come standard with FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks in the rear. These components combined with the tried and true BDS IFS lift system bring an unbeatable suspension to the market for late model Ford F150 trucks.
