The new BDS Suspension 5.5" suspension system is design with our tried-and-true steering knuckle and crossmember technology. The system has passed FMVSS126 testing for stability control compliance. Heavy-duty fabricated crossmembers drop the lower control arms, perfectly matching the massive ductile cast iron extended steering knuckles to gain 5.5" of lift.
The crossmembers utilize the factory alignment eccentrics and tie together with a full-width skid plate. The skid plate protects the relocated differential that has been lowered and positioned to work precisely with the included transfer case indexing ring, allowing for the factory front drive shaft to be used.
The factory front struts are relocated using upper strut extensions that do not require disassembly of the strut. Front bump stop extension and sway bar links are included as well as new Moog tie rod ends to properly set alignment without trimming the inner tie rods.
In the rear, as simple block/u-bolt combination sets the new ride height so it is level with the front. Fox 2.0 or NX² series rear shocks are available to finish out the back.
FOX Coil-Over Dual Speed Compression (DSC) Adjuster Technology (Optional upgrade)
The Dual Speed Compression (DSC) adjuster provides added control and comfort tuning for on-road use while also offering more aggressive damping for use off-road. The adjuster allows for precise suspension tuning with the simple twist of two clearly defined knobs: No tools and no mess, just a way to easily fine-tune your suspension to best suit your needs in any conditions. The DSC increases both low and high-speed compression levels up to 25%, allowing you to maximize small bump compliance and traction while still having the extra damping required for big hits.
- LSC Adjustment Range - The Low Speed Compression (LSC) adjuster knob offers 10 clicks of adjustment and primarily affects compression damping during slow suspension movements such as G-outs or smooth jump landings. It also affects wheel traction and the harshness or plushness of the vehicle's ride.
- HSC Adjustment Range - The High Speed Compression (HSC) adjuster knob offers 12 clicks of adjustment and mainly affects compression damping during medium to fast suspension movements such as steep jump faces, harsh flat landings, and aggressive wash board roads.
