BDS Suspension Ram 3500 3" Radius Arm Lift System.
This kit is perfect for those looking for all the performance of a full-out lift system but with the height of a leveling kit. This new system is built around massive tubular replacement radius arms. These arms are built to handle far more than the factory parts they are replacing. The design incorporates a factory style rubber bushing mount at the frame to keep the NVH levels in check. The 3-1/4" diameter bushings are huge and have a long, maintenance-free service life. The new radius arms mount right into the factory locations so installation is simple and clean. Factory alignment adjustability is maintained using the OE eccentric adjusters. The arm geometry is set to keep the axle angle in the factory specs while compensating for the 3" of lift. A copper-anodized aluminum BDS name plate is mounted each arm.
In addition to the heavy-duty, high-performance radius arms, this new system features dual-rate front coil springs that improve the ride and handling of these 1 ton trucks both on and off road. Our popular heavy-duty turnbuckle style adjustable track bar is included to center the axle. BDS greaseable front sway bar links reset the sway bar to the optimum angle and round out the main front components. Add in the front brake line relocation brackets and a choice of NX² series or FOX 2.0 Performance Series shocks and this system is set to handle any terrain.
The rear system is a simple 2" block and u-bolt setup to level out the back with the newly lifted front.

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.
