I currently have a 2001 ZR2 Blazer with your 5 inch BDS Suspension lift and turning 35 inch tires (with extreme trimming of the sheet metal, no body lift). The kit has been installed for approximately 3 years and I’ve had fantastic results with it! In fact, after I accidentally caught a little too much air while off-road I came down and destroyed half the suspension parts on the drivers side of the truck, but none of the BDS components failed!
This truck (98 Chevy Silverado Z/71 Ext. Cab 5.7L with a 6″ BDS lift) rides so much better than any other lifted truck I’ve ever driven. It handles perfectly on and off road. There isn’t any body roll going through turns yet it will still flex out when I want it to.
Before I bought the lift I had researched around looking for the best quality, best ride and best wheel travel lift I could find. After having the lift on the truck for awhile now (EJS, Hells Revenge, being the Sub’s maiden voyage). I’m totally impressed with the system! Keep up the good work.
Here are a few more pictures from Hersey High School. They are in the middle of the project so everything is still in mock up form. One of the photos shows the truck at their auto show with all the students that volunteered to work. The truck is still on little tires at this point but the BDS suspension is on it.

John Hersey High School’s Automotive/CAD/M&T students get hands on training with BDS Suspension products. BDS donated a Jeep XJ Cherokee 6.5” long arm kit for a class project. The class also added 33×12.50 Dunlop Mud Rovers on 15×10 Cragar Soft 8 Wheels. The students designed a custom front bumper using AutoDesk Inventor. They cut out the panels, their school logo, and Jeep with a CNC plasma cutter and then welded it together. Two auxillary lights and ¾” D rings were added. Future plans are to fabricate a back bumper and cut BDS into it. Both bumpers will be powdercoated and the cutouts will be backlit.
The MAC ATTACK has new name and a new look, now known as the AFTER BURNER, the comments at the Springfield, Mo. jamboree were great. Everyone likes the new look. The race at Springfield is on asphalt with dirt jumps making for an interesting course, especially in the corners. There were three shows, with the nation’s best competitors. The new and improved AFTER BURNER team picked off a win at each show, having the fastest time for the weekend and 1st place for the best appearing truck (thanks to the vinyl wrap from Hale Printing in Davenport, Iowa).
