These new kits join existing options for the standard (strut/coil) SUVs and rear Autoride equipped SUVs to to offer lift options for all late model GM SUVs. These kits utilize the tried and true high-clearance IFS design that has made BDS the preferred suspension lift for late model GMs. 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. A specially designed top mounted strut spacer is used for compatibility with the factory Magneride struts along with sensor brackets. Also included for the front are replacement HD tie rod ends, longer sway bar links, brake line brackets and a BDS front skid plate.
The rear of the Magneride equipped SUVs uses the same technology as Autoride equipped SUVs. To properly lift and level the stance a pair of 5" Proride coil springs are supplied offering improved on-road/offroad performance and more travel from the rear suspension. A track bar relocation bracket and support brace are supplied to recenter the rear axles along with longer sway bar links to correct the sway bar operating angle. The rear sensors are relocated using the supplied brackets along with rear shock extensions to retain the factory electronic dampers. Also included are a pair of bump stop extensions and all the hardware necessary to complete the install. These kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat along with step-by-step installation instructions. Improve the look and performance of your Magneride equipped late model Chevy/GMC SUV with room for up to 35" tires with this new lift system from BDS Suspension.
