Eight inch coilover system for 2014-2018 Chevy and GMC 1500 4WD Trucks
Coldwater, MI – BDS Suspension raises the bar with new 8” high clearance coilover systems for the 2014-2018 Chevy/GMC 1500 trucks. These new 8” coilover systems and coilover upgrade kits join the current 2”, 4”, 6” and 8″ lineup of BDS suspension options offering next level performance and capability. At the heart of these new systems are a pair of precision tuned FOX 2.5 factory series remote reservoir coilovers engineered to outperform on and offroad as they soak up the terrain. These coilovers are preset for the correct lift height right out of the box to provide optimal performance and direct bolt-in replacement for the factory strut assemblies. They feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8″ hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs and black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts along with remove reservoirs with mounting brackets. Complimenting the coilovers, BDS utilizes the tried and true high-clearance IFS design that has made BDS the preferred suspension lift for late model GMs. This consists of a pair of newly designed 1/4″ thick laser cut high clearance crossmembers and differential skid plate to reposition the lower arms while adding underbody protection and strength. These combined with the specially designed ductile iron replacement steering knuckles allow this system to maintain proper geometry for ESC system compatibility. Up front the kits use a multipoint differential relocation kit and to securely reposition the front differential to correct CV axle operating angle and allow use of the stock front driveshaft with the supplied boot spacer. Along with retaining the factory geometry, factory ride quality is maintained at the new height using a set of BDS branded top mounted strut spacers allowing for quick and easy installation. Rounding out the front of this kit are heavy duty steering tie rod ends to work with the new knuckle assemblies, longer sway bar links and sway bar drop brackets to correct operating angle, brake line brackets and a BDS front skid plate.
In the rear of this 8” lift system, the factory block is replaced with a 6” fabricated block, add-a-leaf and longer u-bolts to lift and level the stance. These blocks are ultra strong, specially designed with an offset pin to recenter the axle along with an integrated bump stop wing to properly limit suspension compression. Additionally, brake line brackets allow the use of factory brake lines and a pair of specially tuned FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks are supplied to round out the rear of the kits. These kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat, all hardware is provided along with step-by-step installation instructions. All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS’s No Fine Print Warranty, FMVSS No.126 (ESC System) compliance certification and a 5year-100mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your late model Chevy/GMC 1500 truck with this new 8” lift system from BDS Suspension.
