This unique High Clearance suspension lift kit utilizes high arched crossmembers that blend perfectly with the angle of the factory installed lower control arms for a completely integrated look while lifting your vehicle a full 4-1/2" dramatically increasing ground clearance at the front crossmembers and improving operating geometry. A front differential skid plate comes standard, for increased off road protection.
The rear is lifted with a tapered 3" block for easy installation.
This highly customizable kit gives you the choices you need to build your rig your way. Standard or narrow track knuckle kits, gas shocks, and dual steering stabilizers are just a few of the options and upgrades available for this 4-1/2" Chevy/GMC suspension lift kit.
Track Width Option
This system is available with two different knuckle designs. The standard knuckle widens the track, but does not affect the turning radius. The narrow track knuckle reduces the total track width change by about 1.5" overall, but does increase the turning radius slightly.
Rear Lift Height Options
5" Block Kit
This system comes standard with 5" rear lift blocks.
BDS Glide-Ride Leaf Springs
Choosing this option replaces the standard block kit included in the lift with BDS Glide-Ride rear leaf springs. BDS Glide-Ride leaf springs will reduce axle wrap and create a more controlled and stable feel when towing. These springs are covered by the BDS No Fine Print Warranty.
BDS NX2 series gas shocks offer impressive performance on and offroad. They use a nitrogen charged, twin tube design with 10-stage velocity sensitive valving for lightning fast dampening and superior control.
Fox 2.0 Series
Fox 2.0 performance series shocks have been tuned and tested by both Fox and BDS Suspension to maximize performance specific to each application and to every BDS Suspension system. The basic shock design is based on proven Fox Racing Shox race products, but re-designed to maximize the ride quality, handling, and control of your BDS equipped truck or jeep, whether on or off the road.
Carrier Bearing Drop Kit
The carrier bearing drop is recommended for trucks with 2-piece rear driveshafts.
