BDS Suspension Lift Kit

Normally ships within 48 hours
This kit does not include the replacement upper control arms
BDS Suspension originally released their lift kits for the 2019 and newer Silverado and Sierra 1500 models without replacement upper control arms. After there were reports of premature ball joint wear, both on lifted, leveled and factory height trucks, they decided that they would include upper control arms with all of their lift kits to prevent premature ball joint wear. This is one of the original kits without the upper control arms. We have limited stock on the original parts. If you do experience premature upper ball joint wear with your factory upper control arms then you can always just add the BDS upgraded control arms to your truck. The discounted price on this kit refllects the fact that it is discontinued and does not include the upper control arms.

Adaptive Ride Control Equipped Models Only
BDS Suspension is now shipping complete 4" lift systems specially designed for the GMC Denali 1500 trucks equipped with Adaptive Ride Control (ARC). These new systems join the existing 6" lift systems to retain full functionality of the ARC systems offering great on-road/off-road performance and capability. Based off the tried and true high clearance technology this new 6" IFS system retains the on road comfort and handling Denali owners have come to expect while improving ground clearance, offering more offroad protection and allowing clearance for 35" tires. While some companies build "kits" to 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 affect 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 to these standards with 35" tires.

At the heart of this new 4" lift system 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 on this particular kit comes from a set of top mounted steel fabricated strut spacers to mount onto the factory Adaptive Ride Control 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 this 4" lift system, the factory block is replaced with a 3" lift block and longer u-bolts to lift and net a level stance. Also supplied are brake line and ABS line brackets allow the retain use of factory brake lines. Rounding out this kit is a set of rear shocks extension brackets to correct shock positioning and retain functionality with the rear Adaptive Ride Control shocks. All kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat and sent with all hardware packs to complete the install along with step-by-step installation instructions.

All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS's No Fine Print Warranty, FMVSS No.126 (ESC System) compliance certification and a 5year-100,000mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your GMC Denali 1500 truck with this new 4" lift system from BDS Suspension.
