BDS raises the bar once again with new 5.5" Performance Coilover Systems for the Chevy Colorado and GMC Canyon. Designed around the tried-and-true steering knuckle and crossmember technology, these kits provide enough lift fit 33" tires while maintaining the OE suspension geometry for smooth handling and ride characteristics.
This system uses a pair of heavy duty 1/4" steel high clearance crossmembers to reposition the lower control arms and work in unison with the massive ductile cast iron extended steering knuckles. The crossmembers utilize the factory alignment eccentrics and tie together with a full-width skid plate. The skid plate protects vital front end components for offroad use and ties the crossmembers together for an extremely rigid sub-frame. The front differential is relocated to keep CV axle angles at a minimum and function properly with the supplied transfer case indexing ring. This allows for the use of the factory front driveline once lifted. Front bump stop extension and sway bar links are included as well as new heavy duty Moog tie rod ends to properly set alignment without trimming the inner tie rods.
In place of the factory struts this system uses precision tuned FOX 2.5 remote reservoir coil-overs to achieve superior on and offroad performance. The included Fox 2.5 coil-overs can also be upgraded to the DSC (dual speed compression) adjuster equipped coil-overs for the ability to perfectly fine tune the ride quality and handling.
Finishing off this new 5.5" coilover system, a 4" rear block/u-bolt kit sets the new ride height and levels the stance. Specially tuned FOX 2.0 series IFP gas shocks are supplied to compliment the front coilovers and improve the Colorado/Canyon's performance on or offroad.
