2" Coilover Systems: These kits are designed to be so much more than just a "leveling kit" offering next level performance and comfort. At the heart of these kits are a pair of precision tuned FOX 2.5 factory race series remote reservoir coilovers preset and ready to perform right out of the box. They feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs and black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts along with remove reservoirs optional DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment technology built in. Additionally a pair of performance upper control arms (UCAs) are used to improve strength and suspension travel. Built from thick wall 1.5" DOM tubing, these UCAs utilize an indexed ball joint cup to reposition the upper ball joints and allowing more droop travel. These arms come fully assembled right out of the box with high quality greaseable ball joints and rubber bushings for long life, quiet operation and superior corrosion resistance over uniballs and heims. Rounding out these 2" coilover systems are pair of FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks to compliment the front and complete the package.
4" and 6" Lift Systems: Stepping up to 4" and 6" heights BDS offers complete IFS lift systems designed to correct suspension, steering, and drivetrain geometry with clearance for 35-37" tires. At either height a pair of 1/4" thick laser cut high clearance crossmembers to maximize clearance and provide a solid mounting point for the OE lower control arms. Heavy duty front skid plate system create a rigid subframe while adding protection for vital steering and driveline components. In place of the factory steering knuckles a pair of specially designed ductile iron replacement steering knuckles are supplied to maintain proper steering geometry for ESC system compatibility. These connect to the factory steering linkage with a pair of heavy duty replacement tie rod ends included in the kit. The front differential is repositioned with BDS’s multipoint relocation bracket system to secure the front differential and keep CV axle angles at a minimum. A billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer is also supplied along with longer hardware to allow the reinstallation of the factory driveshaft. Additional ride height on the 4” lifts comes from an easy to install top mounted strut spacer to maintain ride quality and handling characteristics. On the 6” lifts you have the option of a combination top mounted strut spacer and preload spacers designed to not over extend the suspension during droop travel.. Rounding out the front of this kit are a pair of stainless steel braided extended brake line and sway bar relocation brackets.
In the rear of these 4" or 6" kits are a pair of 3" or 5" ProRide dual rate coil springs to lift and level the stance. With the additional ride height the rear suspension geometry is corrected with control arm relocation brackets, a bolt-on rear track bar relocation bracket to recenter the axle, extended length sway bar links to correct operating angle, and bump stop extensions to properly limit up travel. The rear of these kits are rounded out with your choice of specially tuned NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks to offer improved damper performance.
6" Coilover Systems: Building on the BDS lift systems these coilover systems up the ante for next level performance. In place of the factory strut + strut spacer these systems upgrade to FOX 2.5 factory race series coilovers with a remote reservoir for improved damper performance. These coilovers are available with or without the optional DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment built in. These coilovers are preset for the correct lift height right out of the box to provide optimal performance and direct bolt-in replacement for the factory strut assemblies. They feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8" hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs and black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts along with remove reservoirs with mounting brackets. The optional DSC adjustment technology builds on the racing pedigree of the FOX 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers adding easy tuning of the vehicle’s suspension compression dampening 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 for your particular needs. These pair with the 1/4" steel laser cut high clearance crossmembers, the heavy duty front skid plate system and ductile iron steering knuckles to correct suspension and steering geometry. Also included are replacement tie rod ends, front differential relocation brackets, a billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer, stainless steel braided brake line and sway bar relocation brackets. In the rear a pair of 5" ProRide dual rate coil springs to lift and level the stance along with control arm relocation brackets, rear track bar relocation bracket, extended length sway bar links and bump stop extensions along with FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks to offer improved damper performance. Take your RAM to the next level with BDS and FOX.
