BDS Suspension 6-1/2" Lift Kit for 1999 - 2006 Chevrolet/GMC 4WD Silverado/Sierra 1500 1/2 ton pickup trucks. Also fits 2007 Chevrolet/GMC 4WD Silverado/Sierra 1500 "Classic."
The No Torsion Bar Drop System will make your 1999-2006 pickup look like a lifted 2007-2008 design. The torsion bars are mounted directly to the top of the lower a-arm eliminating the need to drop the torsion bar crossmember.
Integrated with our unique BDS High Clearance Lift System this 6-1/2" suspension lift kit offers more ground clearance than any comparable lift kit. The high arched crossmembers maximize ground clearance while creating improved operating geometry.
A front skid plate and differential skid plate are included to lock everything together as well as offer extreme off road protection and improved performance.
The rear is lifted with a block and add-a-leaf to level your truck.
Choose between the custom valved NX² series or the Fox 2.0 series gas charged monotube rear shocks.

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.
