BDS Suspension 4" Suspension Lift Kit System for 2017-2018 Ford F150 Raptor 4WD pickup trucks.
2017-2018 Ford Raptor 4" Suspension System. This new lift system for the Raptor is based on the popular BDS 4" system for the standard F150s. Many of the components from the standard F150 kit carryover like the ductile cast iron steering knuckles, laser cut/CNC formed, fully welded crossmembers and differential brackets, etc.
We determined in testing that the 4" lift height allows for the best use of the full range of suspension travel allotted by the factory suspension components. These factory components include the high-end Fox Racing Shox at all 4 corners of the vehicle. These internal bypass coilovers (front) and shocks (rear) are what really make a Raptor the truck it is.
By properly relocating these coilovers and shocks, we are able to maintain that amazing performance that makes the Raptor a true offroad machine. The front coilovers are relocated with a heavy-duty spacer at the frame mount while the rear shocks are relocated at the axle with bolt-on brackets.
Other Raptor specific items included in the kit are front brake line relocation brackets that maintain adequate brake line slack for the massive amount of wheel travel available. Raptor specific front skid plate relocation is also included to maintain the signature Raptor front aluminum skid plate and have it blend cleanly into the BDS front crossmember.
Out back, in addition to the rear shock relocation brackets, is a 5" block and u-bolt kit. The 5" block replaces the factory block to net a level stance and includes a bump stop wing for proper bump stop engagement offroad.

Aftermarket products must meet these standards as well. BDS Suspension is leading the industry by independently testing all suspension kits to verify our kits are fully compliant with the stability control system requirements set by Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) No. 126.

No Fine Print Warranty
BDS stands behind its products and that’s evident by their No Fine Print Warranty. This no-BS warranty protects the original purchaser against breakage, bending, sagging, or any other usage failure. This “no fine print” lifetime replacement warranty extends to cover all BDS hard parts as well as bushings. Exclusions would be product finish and wearable items such as shock/stabilizer cylinders, tie rod ends and ball joints that would fall under the separate Limited Lifetime Warranty policy. Beginning February 1, 2020 all new kit purchases include the No Fine Print Warranty on bushings.
Limited Lifetime Warranty (for wearable items)
Wearable items include shock/steering stabilizer cylinders, ball joints and tie rod ends. BDS Suspension Co. warrants to the original retail purchaser that its these wearable parts are free from defects in material and workmanship for so long as they own the vehicle. Excluded from this warranty are the finish of the product. Defects in material and workmanship do not include such things as dented cylinders or bent rods caused by obvious side impact, rust or corrosion. A shock absorber is a wear item and over time will experience diminished damping resistance due to normal component wear. This is not a defect in material or workmanship and is therefore not warrantable.
