BDS 6" 4-Link Lift Kits: After months of anticipation following the 2016 SEMA Show, BDS Suspension is excited to announce the 6" 4-link suspension options are now available for the redesigned 2017 Ford Super Duty trucks. The engineers at BDS have taken the upmost care to design, test and manufacturer the best possible setup for the new Super Duty which is evident when you put a BDS 6" 4-link equipped Super Duty through its paces on the highway and out on the trail.
At the heart of these new 6" systems is a heavy duty 4-link control arm conversion to upgrade the factory stamped steel radius arms for improved strength, handling, and caster control. This new setup is based off the tried and true 4-link setup from '05-16 Super Duty kits, now designed to key off the factory frame bracket (no need to remove factory bracket) along with tying into the frame rail and transmission crossmember for an extremely rigid control arm mount. The brackets are build from high strength 1/4" steel, come fully welded and finished in a durable textured black powdercoat with riveted BDS nameplates. The upper and lower control arms are built from heavy wall 2" OD DOM steel tubing with massive 2-1/2" greaseable frame mount bushings and reinforced clevis mounts to attach at the axle.
The extra ride height comes from a pair of 6" ProRide coil springs designed specifically for the weight of the diesel or gas engine equipped trucks for a smooth ride paired with your choice of specially tuned BDS NX2 series gas shocks or the premium FOX 2.0 IFP performance gas shocks. For steering correction a forged drop pitman arm and heavy duty track bar relocation bracket are supplied. This brings the drag link angle closer to factory and keeps the steering angles in line with the relocated track bar for improved drivability and a recentered front axle. Also supplied for the front are bump stop extensions to limit suspension compression, sway bar drop brackets to correct the sway bar positioning, and brake line relocation brackets to allow the use of the factory brake lines to speed up installation.
The 2017 models use a new front driveline design that requires correction at 6" of lift and above to allow for use of 4WD at any speed. To do this BDS supplies a high strength transfer case indexing ring to rotate the front output of the transfer case down to improve the front driveline operating angle. The indexing ring uses ARP studs and includes new mounting hardware. Also supplied is a heavy duty replacement transmission crossmember to allow additional clearance.
In the rear of these 6" systems BDS offers multiple lift options for both the OE 2-leaf main spring pack and OE 3-leaf main spring pack equipped trucks. The first option is a 6" replacement block and u-bolt kit for the 3-leaf trucks. The blocks are built from high strength, fully boxed steel with an integrated bump stop wing. Both the blocks and u-bolts are finished in a durable black e-coat finish. In addition to the block kit, the 2-leaf trucks receive an add-a-leaf to level the stance. The second option for the rear are full replacement BDS Glideride leaf springs to provide the lift needed to level the stance. These springs are a 4-leaf design with integrated overload leaf for extra load capacity. They come fully assembled with bushings installed for ease installation and a smooth ride on and off-road. Finishing off the rear of this kit are a pair of matching NX2 or FOX 2.0 gas shocks to compliment the front setup for all around impressive performance. These new 6" 4-link systems allow for clearance of up to 38" tires. Take your 2017 Super Duty to the next level with BDS Suspension.
