3" Lift Kit: BDS offers an easy to install 3" leveling kit designed to provide stock-like ride quality and room for 33" tires. The kit uses a fabricated steel top mounted strut spacer designed to extend the length of the strut to provide 3" of lift. The spacers install easily without the need to disassemble the factory struts. Also supplied in the kit is new hardware to mount the spacers. The kit is designed to eliminate the factory rake, however if rear lift is needed BDS offers both a 1" rear shackle kit as well as a 2" rear block kit along with your choice of rear BDS 5500-series hydraulic or precision tuned FOX 2.0 performance gas shocks.

4.5" and 7"  High Clearance Lift Kits: Stepping up to the 4.5" and 7" high clearance systems, BDS offers complete systems engineered to a higher standard for improved performance on road and off the beaten path. At the core of these 4.5" and 7" lift systems are a pair of laser cut 1/4" steel high clearance crossmembers and a full width belly skid plate designed to reposition the lower arms and add protection of vital drivetrain components. These combined with the CNC machined ductile iron replacement steering knuckles create a solid subframe and to correct suspension and steering geometry to be compatible with the factory installed ESC system. Up front the kits use a multipoint differential relocation kit to securely reposition the front differential to correct CV axle angles and allow for the use of the stock front driveshaft. Also included for the front are heavy duty tie rod ends, longer sway bar links, weld-in support plates, cam bolts, and brake line brackets. A lower strut extension is used to provide the extra ride height while maintaining factory ride quality. In the rear these kits are offered with a rear cast iron block and u-bolt kit to level the stance. Also included are rear brake line extensions and your choice of rear BDS-5500 series hydraulic or Fox 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks. The 4.5" system is designed to fit up to 35" tires while the 7" system allows up to 37" tires.

7" Performance Coilover Systems: For 2016 Tundra owners looking to get the most out of their trucks both on road and off, BDS offers the 7" performance coilover system. Built from the core components of the BDS 7" high clearance lift kit, this system utilizes the same high clearance crossmember, ductile iron steering knuckles, differential relocation and heavy duty skid plate that have earned it notoriety among the Tundra community. In place of the lower strut extensions and rear BDS-5500 series shocks these systems feature precision tuned Fox factory series 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers up front and Fox 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks in the rear for exceptional performance and ride quality across any terrain. The Fox factory series 2.5 remote reservoir coilovers come prebuilt for easy installation and ready for perform out on the trail. The Fox coilover feature:

  • Smooth-bore, clear coated, zinc plated alloy body
  • Black anodized 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounting components
  • 7/8" hard chrome plated heat treated alloy steel shaft
  • High flow piston design with specially formulated race oil
  • Black anodized external reservoir to separate shock oil from high-pressure nitrogen
  • Prebuilt with Eibach coil springs
  • Easy bolt-on installation, proper ride height right out of the box

Whether you're looking for the smooth riding kit on the road or a Baja proven system, you can't go wrong with the BDS 7" Performance Coilover System for new 2016 Toyota Tundras.

    Love this truck. I just bought one in the same color and looking to achieve this same look. Going to have a local BDS supplier install the lift but I am trying to figure out what wheels and tires those are. Does anyone know what brand or model they are?

    Had the basic 7″ and upgraded to coilovers. In a lapse of judgment I sold my strut extensions and realized I don’t really need the coilovers and wanted to go back to my stock struts. Is there anyway I can purchase just the extensions from bds? Thanks

      Why did you decide to go back to the stock struts from the coilovers? I was thinking of having the coilovers installed.

    Is the ride quality of the fox coilovers worth the extra $1800? Buying the 7″ lift for tundra this week but curious how the ride is with both

    Are upgraded upper control arms recommended with the 4.5 coilover kit?

    I already have the bds lift kit 7″. Now I’m buying fox shocks coil w/reservoir and rear w/reservoir aswell. Now question #1 by installing these will it raise my ’16 tundra little higher? Question #2 is it necessary for rear w/reservoir? Last but not least 90% of my ride are street and freeway. It’s smooth ride now will it be stiffer?

    Btw will the back sit lower too? Mine looks sagging when park.

    Hey carter, thanks for all the help you gave me. My other question was rear shocks. Right now I have fox 2.0 non reservoirs. But I thinking of replacing it with same kind this time with reservoir. In your opinion is it necessary for me to change it or keep what I have and save few bucks? I don’t know if it’s going to change a whole lot at rear.

    I have the BDS 4.5″ Coilover + 1″ rear shackles installed last year and I LOVE the look and great ride!!! Reviewing your comments about the Fox 2.0 rear shock reservoirs, I plan to take my ride more off-reading but curious to know if these shocks work on a 4″ rear lift, since they are designed for 1″-1.5″ lift applications; is this coorect as I hear that it shouldn’t be an issue? Thanks.

    Question, been doing a lot of research on your 7″ lift. Can’t decide to go with the Fox coil overs or not? I don’t plan on off-roading, just for looks, but I also want it ride really nice, can’t decide?

    Is it really worth the extra cash???

    Hi. I have a 2017 TRD PRO. Will the 4.5″ or 7″ coil over systems work on my truck?

    I have a 7″ lift. My question is what is the difference in spindles from older lifts to the “new upgraded” ones? What was the reason in the change? Will the new ones fix alignment issues?

    Installing a 4.5 kit with the 1”shackles on a 16 Tundra with a TRD rear sway bar. Are longer end links required for the rear?

    I have a 2017 SR5 Tundra with the dual trd exhaust. I have the leveling kit and utilize the firestone airbags when pulling my travel trailer. I also have the trd sway bar. The travel trailer is roughly 9,000lbs when load up.

    I have a couple of questions. If I go with 4.5 kit would I actually notice an increase in height when not towing? Would I need to remove the airbags for either the 4.5 or 7 inch lift? Plus I rarely off road. TIA for your input

    If I go with the 7 inch lift and remove the air bags what keeps the tail end from squatting?

    I think I want to go with the 7 inch lift but I pull the travel trailer at least once a month and that is more important than having the height. Any problems or do I need to upgrade the shocks or add another leaf?

    Hi, I am looking to lift my Tundra but I am debating between 4.5” or 7”, I will be using this truck for 90% highway drive but also want to use it as an overlander for the occational trip, which height is better for overlanding/actual real off-roading? Is the mpg affected the same way between the 4.5” and 7”? Also my Tundra has the TRD offroad kit on it (not the TRD PRO) with the bilstein shocks and the ride is very rough, any long trips on crappy “low quality” highways can leave me very tired from the vibration and roughness of the ride, having said that some local lift shops have sold me the idea that the BDS with FOX considerably improves the ride and that it will feel like a “Cadillac” or a “Raptor”, how true is this? How tall does the truck seats with the 7” (on 37’s) and on 4.5” (on 35’s)? I want to know if it will clear my 7’ garage door. How does the 4.5” compares with the 5” ZONE kit since you guys are pretty much the same company?

    I want to run 25001-643A – King 2.5 Front 2.5 Remote Reservoir Coilovers with Adjusters and 25001-644A – King 2.5 Rear Remote Reservoir Shocks with Adjusters made for 6″ lifts. I’m going for a 6″-7″ lift? Will those coilovers give me the height I’m looking for on Kit#819H? or should I get Kit# 818H?
