This past SEMA Show was one for the ages. So many cool and custom vehicles on display will several new 4x4s competing for the spotlight.  Among them the 2020 Chevy Silverado 2500HD with new styling, new powertrain options and new tech throughout. When it came to building a new HD, Ernie Vole of Ernie's ATC in Vernon Hills, IL had a concept that tweaked our interest. Rather than lifting it sky high and and running 24s or even 28s he wanted to show off the truck's offroad prowess, keep it low and build a truck capable of bombing down a trail along the Baja peninsula.

Ernie's no stranger to building functional SEMA trucks, from prerunner trucks and offroad Jeeps to his most memorable ride the original Stubby F350 that graced the cover of Four Wheeler Magazine years ago. For this 2020 HD he needed the right suspension so he turned to BDS for the (preproduction) 2.5" coilover conversion system to ditch the factory torsion bars and UCA/LCA and upgrade to FOX 2.5 DSC coilovers, BDS chromoly UCAs and HD internally gusseted LCAs. Along with that FOX 2.0 IFP bump stops and a full width BDS skid plate. Out back this factory long leafs remain and a custom bed cage was fitted to mount the FOX 2.5 factory series remote resi shocks. This gives clearance for the 35x12.50 Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 tires on 17x9 XD Machete Crawl beadlocks.

The factory bumper was trimmed and supports were added to mount a Baja Designs lightbar along with a roof mounted rack with LP9 lighting all controlled by an sPod relay system. Other notable upgrades include a custom built internal rollbar to mount the PRP restraints and a Pro Eagle big wheel jack mounted in the bed.

Coldwater, MI - BDS Suspension adds to its lineup of coilover options with new coilover conversion upgrade kits for the '01-10 Chevy/GMC 1500HD/2500HD/3500HD trucks and 2500 (8-lug model) SUVs. These kits join the BDS 4.5" and 6.5" complete coilover conversion systems that launched earlier this year to give current BDS customers the option to take their current (non-coilover) high clearance IFS kits to the next level for superior performance and capability. Available in 4.5" and 6.5" lift heights these coilover upgrades kits replace your factory torsion bars and shocks converting over to FOX 2.5 factory series DSC coilovers to offer the best performance, ride quality and high speed off-road capability on the market.

Building on the tried and true BDS high clearance system, these upgrade kits feature FOX 2.5 factory series coilovers with remote DSC reservoir. These coilovers feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened stainless steel shaft, FOX coil springs, black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts and FOX's DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment technology. The DSC adjustment allows for easy adjustment of the vehicle's suspension compression damping to dial in the ideal ride performance to soak up the bumps, both large and small. 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 on any terrain. 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. The coilovers come fully assembled, preset for either 4.5" or 6.5" of lift for optimal wheel travel.

To mount the coilovers BDS supplies bolt-on brackets that install on the frame and to the factory lower control arm (LCA). These brackets are built from 1/4" steel and are full welded to properly position the coilovers. In addition to replacing the factory torsion bars, the upper control arms (UCA) are upgraded to improved strength, travel, and accommodate the new coilovers. The UCAs are new performance series upper control arms designed specifically for this system to integrate with the 2.5 coilovers. The arms are fabricated from large 1.5" OD x .120-wall tubing, fully welded and gusseted for the highest quality, strength and durability. The arms utilize premium quality Moog brand ball joints and factory style rubber bushings for smooth, quiet operation and superior durability and corrosion protection when compared to arms with uni-balls, poly bushings or heims. The ball joint cups are repositioned for optimal performance allowing for improved suspension travel. These upper control arms are finished in a durable black powdercoat and include a billet aluminum ball joint dust cap. The control arms come fully assembled for easy install right out of the box.

Take your '01-10 HD truck or SUV to the next level with these new coilover upgrade kits and complete coilover conversion systems from BDS and FOX. Head to the BDS website for more info and stop by your local BDS distributor.

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.
