These standard kits are designed to retain the factory radius arms by relocating the frame mounting location using a pair of 1/4" steel drop brackets to maintain suspension geometry. The drop brackets key off the factory mounts and tie into the frame for extra strength. Also included in the kit are specially designed diesel engine specific progressive rate ProRide front coil springs offering improved performance across all terrains. Also included is a heavy-duty fabricated front track bar bracket, forged drop pitman arm, extended bump stops, brake line relocation brackets, sway bar links, rear block and u-bolt kit along with rear air bag lower spacers and sensor brackets. Rounding out the kits is your choice of BDS NX2 series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance gas shocks at each corner. These kits allow for 35-37" tires to be installed.

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.
