6″ lift kit featuring Fox coil-overs
2007-2013 Chevy/GMC 1/2-ton 2wd/4WD Fox 2.5″ Remote Reservoir Coil-over Lift Kits
Coldwater, MI—September 4, 2012—The late model 2007-2013 GM 1/2-ton trucks have proven themselves as a worthy replacement to the torsion bar configured predecessor. BDS Suspension continues to offer suspension lift options for both and is proud to announce the latest release, Fox Racing coil-over performance suspension systems for the 2007-2013 trucks.
After more than a year of development and testing, BDS Suspension and Fox Racing have dialed in this system to take the newer Silverado/Sierra 1500 trucks to a new level of performance. This new 6″ high clearance performance system is built to take on the open desert, sand dunes, or whatever terrain you throw at it while retaining the on road mannerisms that late-model truck owners have come to expect. Take your truck to a whole new level with BDS Suspension and Fox Racing Shox.
The Fox Racing 2.5″ remote reservoir coil-overs feature:
These new coil-overs are available as an upgrade for current BDS GM 1/2-ton lift kits or as a complete 6″ performance suspension system. Matched with a pair of Fox 2.0 rear shocks, these coil-overs drastically improve the ride and performance of your BDS lifted Chevy/GMC truck. Installation is a breeze with the coil-overs coming pre-tuned to offer proper ride height right out of the box with brackets included to mount the remote reservoir.
BDS’s unique high clearance suspension design is a true blend of performance, function, and appearance. Suspension geometry of this 6″ lift kit creates a factory style ride. The black powdercoated high arched crossmembers blend perfectly with the angle of the factory installed lower control arms for a completely integrated look while providing a full 6″ of lift and increasing ground clearance at the front crossmember by 91%.
Also included are a pair of stout CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles to work with factory ESP, differential drop brackets and heavy duty skid plate, bump stop extensions, replacement rear block kit, front Fox Racing 2.5″ remote reservoir coil-overs, rear Fox 2.0 performance shocks, and all the necessary hardware to properly lift your truck. Take your late model GM truck to a whole new level with BDS Suspension and Fox Racing Shox.

Press Release #113 – Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks for BDS Lift Kits
Coldwater, MI– August 23, 2011– BDS Suspension and Fox Racing have teamed up and are proud to announce the release of a full line of Fox 2.0 Performance Series Shocks. BDS and Fox engineers developed this monotube shock with compression and rebound valving tuned specifically to optimize the ride and performance of your BDS equipped rig. The Fox 2.0 is an upgrade option for most BDS Suspension kit applications and is designed to be a direct bolt in for easy installation.
The Fox 2.0 features specially formulated race oil and a cold-forged, metalimpacted 6061 T6 aluminum body capable of dissipating heat 3 times faster than conventional steel body shock improving overall performance and longevity.
Case hardened 5/8’’ chrome shafts provide extreme durability and cnc-machined type II hard black anodized aluminum components provide a rugged fade free finish.
Unlike the emulsion shocks you may be familiar with, this new monotube performance shock features an internal floating piston (IFP) designed to separate Fox’s formulated race shock oil from the high-pressure nitrogen charged gas chamber. This constant pressure eliminates oil aeration and foaming, providing a consistent, predictable ride under the roughest driving conditions with fade-free performance.
Designed and tested for BDS Suspension applications, these shocks are ready to bolt on and perform, not to mention look great right out of the box. Get the most out of your ride today with BDS Suspension and Fox 2.0 Performance Series shocks.

CNC machined replacement steering knuckles ensure OE steering geometry and offer no change in track width as well as zero change to OE turning radius. Our knuckles are 100% resonant frequency tested as well as random X-Ray tested to ensure a quality product made right here in the USA.
In the rear, this system uses a 5” block kit that eliminates the square u-bolts and switches to a stronger round u-bolt set up. The rear 5” block even has a cast wing creating a new bump stop point. This system comes complete with BDS 5500-series shocks front and rear and can be upgraded to 9500-series gas shocks. Stainless Steel brake lines round out this system, replacing the weak factory lines.
