BDS Suspension now offers 6" Lift Systems for the 2014-2017 GMC Denali 1500 trucks with factory installed Magneride magnetic ride control system. These new suspension systems utilize the tried and true high-clearance IFS design that has made BDS the preferred suspension lift for late model GM trucks. At the core of these new lift systems BDS supplies a pair of 1/4" thick laser cut high clearance crossmembers and differential skid plate to reposition the lower arms and add protection. These combined with the CNC machined ductile iron replacement steering knuckles creates a stout subframe to correct suspension and steering geometry for ESC system compatibility. Up front the kits use a multipoint differential relocation kit and CV spacers to securely reposition the front differential to correct CV axle angle and allow use of the stock front driveshaft. Top mounted strut spacers are used to retain the Magneride struts as well as new sensor brackets to properly reposition the Magneride sensor arms. Also included for the front are replacement tie rod ends, longer sway bar links, brake line brackets and a BDS front skid plate.
In the rear BDS uses 5" cast iron lift blocks and longer u-bolts in place of the factory block kit to net 4" of lift for a level stance. Rear shock relocation brackets are used at the axle mount to retain full functionality of the Magneride rear monotube shocks. The kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat, all hardware is provided along with step-by-step installation instructions. Improve the look and performance of your late model GMC Denali 1500 with room for up to 35" tires with this new lift system from BDS Suspension.

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.
