BDS Suspension 2" Lift Kit for the 2006 - 2008 Dodge Ram 1500 1/2 Ton Pickup 4WD.
If you are looking for an affordable leveling kit that is done right, choose the BDS 2" leveling kit for your truck.
What makes this system different from many competitors is it includes both a strut pre-load spacer as well as a top strut spacer. In order to gain 2" of lift on these trucks it's not possible to do it right with a top or bottom strut spacer alone. This is due to the factory geometry where a longer strut assembly will make the ball joint the droop limit which could cause premature wear and/or failure. BDS makes a strut spacer that fits within the limits of the factory ball joint angles and adds the additional lift from the strut pre-load spacer. This system is ideal to level your vehicle in order to run larger than stock tires and the added preload puts more pressure on a heavier tire and wheel combination to keep it in contact w/ the road or trail. You cannot run larger than stock tires on the factory wheel due to interference with the OE steering knuckle. Optional rear NX² series or Fox 2.0 Performance gas shocks are available for a full front to back upgrade.

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.
