|PRESS RELEASE #106|
6″ High Clearance Suspension System—1988-1998 Chevy/GMC K1500 & K2500 6-Lug 4WD & 1992-1998 Chevy/GMC Tahoe, Yukon, & Suburban 6-Lug 4WD
Coldwater, MI—March 10, 2010—BDS Suspension has released a 6” High Clearance system for the 88-98 K1500 and K2500 6-Lug 4wd and the 92-98 Tahoe, Yukon, and Suburban 6-Lug 4wd. The lift kit’s one piece cross member is made from 1/4” steel with internal supports. They can handle about any abuse you can throw at them. The extreme high clearance design ensures that you won’t get hung up on anything compared to most other kits on the market.
Unlike many ‘88-98 knuckle kits on the market, this system does not increase the track width. The knuckle design combined with the crossmembers and upper A-arms offer improved geometry and reduced stress on the ball joints compared to other systems available.
New heavy-duty upper greaseable A-arms are included to improve tire clearance as well as allow for the zero track width change. The steel differential skid plate is used to lock the front and rear cross members together as well as offer increased off road protection. CNC machined replacement steering knuckles allow the system to ensure OE steering geometry while reducing installation time when compared to an older style drop down bracket kit. Our knuckles are 100% resonant frequency tested as well as random X-Ray tested to ensure a quality product.
The rear is lifted with either a 4” block and Add-a-leaf kit or new BDS Glide-Ride Leaf springs. The BDS rear leaf springs feature bolt style leaf alignment clamps, anti-friction pads, and tapered leafs.
