BDS Suspension 3" Suspension Lift Kit for 2010-2016 Toyota 4Runner 4WD and 2007 - 2014 Toyota FJ Cruiser. BDS Suspension offeres a 3" suspension lift kit to improve the look and performance of late model 4Runners with clearance for up to 285/70r17 tires. Based on the current FJ Cruiser systems, this new fitment is up to whatever use and abuse you can throw at it. Up front the system uses a combination top mounted strut spacer along with a preload spacer to lift the vehicle and retain the factory geometry. This setup allows the suspension to operate smoothly without forcing upper ball joints to max out at full droop causing premature wear, a common issue with other 3" kits that just use spacer to provide lift. In the rear this kit replaces the factory coil springs with 2" BDS ProRide coil springs to level the stance. These coil springs are capable of full coil bind from repeated use and abuse and guaranteed to always spring back to original ride height. With the new stance set, NX² series shocks are used to retain the ride quality and allow full articulation of the rear suspension. Lastly the rear sway bar links are replaced with longer links to allow the sway bar to operate in its ideal position with the lift installed. Get more out of your late model 4Runner with 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.
