Coldwater, MI: BDS Suspension has updated 2019 GM1500 product listings to now include 2019-2020 model year Chevy Silverado 1500 and Trail Boss trucks as well as the GMC Sierra 1500, AT4 and Denali trucks. In stock and shipping now, these 6” IFS lift systems are based around the tried and true high clearance technology offering for improved on road and offroad performance and handling with clearance for up to 37” tires. While some other companies build "kits” with the goal to simply fit larger tires, BDS Suspension prides itself in engineering complete suspension systems designed to take your vehicle's performance to the next level while retaining OE-level functionality. Case in point the (NHTSA) National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's FMVSS No.126 compliance standards requiring any aftermarket modification to not adversely effect the vehicle's electronic stability control (ESC) system performance in the event of an evasive maneuver. These new kits have been independently tested and certified compliant with these standards with up to 37" tires [as tested on 37x12.50 Mickey Thompson ATZ P3 tires on 20x9 Black Rhino wheels w/ 5.5" BS]. Additionally special care was taken to allow all BDS kits to allow reinstallation of the factory 20” wheels with the lift installed if you choose to do so.
Silverado 1500 / Sierra 1500 (6" Kits): BDS Suspension is offering 6” IFS Systems for the 2019-2020 Chevy Silveardo 1500 and GMC Sierra 1500 trucks. Designed for improved off-road performance while maintaining on-road comfort, these kits have been engineered to the highest standard and utilize the tried and true high clearance technology that has made BDS the go to for GM suspension lifts. At the heart of these new lift systems BDS utilizes 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. These paired with the 3-piece 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 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 tying into the frame and control arm pockets to further secure the front differential to keep CV axle angles at a minimum. Additional ride height comes with 6” top mounted steel fabricated strut spacer to mount onto the factory strut assemblies. These allow for quick-simple installation without the need to disassemble the factory struts and retain the OE ride quality. A pair of BDS-branded sway bar drop brackets used to correct the operating angle of the factory sway bar as well as created a strong brace between the rear crossmember and the frame. Rounding out the front of this kit are new lower control arm cam bolts to allow alignment and a weld-in frame reinforcement plate for extra strength.
In the rear of these 6” lift systems, the factory block is replaced with either a 5" lift block and longer u-bolts to lift and level the stance to the front. Also included, BDS supplies brake line and ABS line brackets allow the use of factory brake lines along with your choice of specially tuned rear NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks. The 6" kits allow for up to 37s.
Trail Boss / AT4 (4" Kits): Factory equipped with about a 2” lift, the Trail Boss and AT4 models utilize longer struts and a factory rear lift block over the standard Silverado/Sierra 1500 trucks. BDS integrates this factory strut lift to offer an additional 4” lift system (final ride height is similar standard SIlverado/Sierra with a 6” lift kit). These 4” lift systems are designed to maximize ground clearance while correcting the suspension-steering-driveline geometry. Similar to the standard Silverado/Sierra kits these utilize high clearance crossmembers, heavy duty skid plates, ductile iron steeling knuckles, multipoint differential relocation, and sway bar relocation along with 4” strut spacers and replacement 5” rear lift blocks to level the stance with room for 35-37” tires.
Denali 1500 (6" Kits): Building off the foundation of the 6” IFS System kits listed above BDS Suspension are also offered for the late model GMC Denali 1500 trucks with Adaptive Ride Control (ARC). Along with the standard high clearance crossmembers, heavy duty skid plates, ductile iron steeling knuckles, multipoint differential relocation, sway bar relocation, 6” strut spacer and rear 5” lift blocks these kits include ARC sensor relocation brackets for the front and ARC shocks extension brackets for the rear. This allows full functionality of the ARC system and clearance for up to 35” tires.
