These new lift systems are deigned to build off the factory mounting points to offer maximum ground clearance and improve suspension travel with clearance for up to 35" tires.
BDS ups the ante with new 3" UCA Lift Systems for the Chevy and GMC 2500HD/3500HD trucks. Built for easy bolt-on installation, these new 3" UCA Lift Systems offer next level performance designed around the OE suspension geometry and utilize the new FOX 2.5 Performance Elite Series shocks at each corner. These large aluminum-bodied shocks feature DSC (Dual Speed Compression) adjustable reservoirs for additional damping capacity, better heat dispersion and tuneable ride. These are paired with heavy duty BDS tubular upper control arms (UCAs) designed for improved strength and increased suspension travel. These new control arms are built from thick wall 1.5" DOM tubing, and use 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. Along with the control arms, a pair of reindexed cast steel torsion bar keys are supplied up front to lift vehicle while maintaining ground clearance. A small differential relocation kit is supplied to correct CV axle operating angles without effecting ground clearance. To eliminate sway bar interference, a pair of sway bar relocation brackets is used which maintains proper operating angle. In the rear a 2" block and u-bolt kit is used to create a level to slightly tail high stance. This system utilizes next level damper performance for smooth on-road comfort and extreme off-road capability allowing you to push your truck harder. Take your HD to the next level with BDS and FOX.
