Grabbing an upgrade for your truck build is always exciting, but can leave a little more to be desired. There are not many upgrades that can make a serious impact on both your driving experience and appearance on the road. If you want the full makeover treatment, then you need to invest one of our BDS Suspension Lift Kits. These kits are the ultimate solution for achieving superior ground clearance and enhanced suspension travel, while creating a whole new stature that will transform how you and others look at your diesel powerhouse. Are you someone that likes to take the road less traveled? If so, you will be intrigued to know that these lift kits are the go-to choice for those seeking high-performance on and off-road capabilities. That being said, BDS lift kits are not defined by their ability to enhance functionality. They also deliver an aggressive stance that commands attention. Discover all the components that let these lift kits deliver these incredible benefits.

Shock Absorbers

The biggest way that a BDS lift kit will make an impact on your truck build is with the included shock absorbers. You have the option to transform your performance with either the FOX Performance Series 2.0 IFP shocks or the BDS NX2 Nitro Series shocks, each catering to specific needs while ensuring an elevated driving experience.

FOX Racing vs. Nitro Shocks

The FOX Performance Series 2.0 IFP shocks boast an internal floating piston (IFP) within a mono-tube design. This construction separates shock oil from the nitrogen-charged gas chamber, eliminating aeration for maximum performance. Precision valving, custom-tailored by FOX and BDS, turns your truck into an off-road powerhouse with predictable, fade-free performance. These shocks are fine-tuned for BDS Suspension systems, providing unparalleled control across diverse terrains.

On the other hand, the BDS NX2 Nitro Series shocks offer high-end performance using a pressurized nitrogen-charged twin-tube design. These shocks feature 10-stage velocity-sensitive valving for adaptive dampening on any terrain. With a 2-inch bodied design, a 1-3/8-inch fluon-banded piston, and self-lubricating seals, these shocks resist rock chips and corrosion. The inclusion of polyurethane bushings and metal sleeves facilitates easy installation, while various configurations accommodate different applications and lift kits.

The Unsung Heros

The shock absorbers in the BDS lift kits may be the star of the show, but the kit would not deliver all that is promised without the small, but mighty components. Also included in these kits are the Pro-Ride Coil Springs and Forged Drop Pitman Arm. With the full-length progressive rate Pro-Ride coil springs, you can ensure the perfect lift height and a smooth ride across diverse terrains. The forged drop pitman arm minimizes steering angles, working in harmony with a heavy-duty track bar drop bracket. This dynamic duo keeps steering components in phase through suspension travel, providing stability and control while recentering the front axle. Without these two key components, you would not be able to enjoy a ride that's not only elevated, but also smooth and predictable, ensuring your truck handles various terrains with ease.
