It's time to turn your S-10/S-15 Sonoma, in to the truck you've always wanted! This 5" BDS suspension lift kit system will transform your S-10/S-15 in to a daily driver that can handle any off road excursion.
This lift kit includes one piece front and rear main crossmembers to ease installation. New upper control arms are included to increase shock clearance and increase rigidity. No welding is required for installation. A dropped steering center link with new adjusting sleeves are included to maintain factory tie rod angles.
A differential skid plate is included to lock the front and rear cross members together. This creates a substantial sub-frame as well as offer additional offroad protection. BDS also takes it a step futher by adding a stainless steel front skid plate to this system.
The rear is lifted via a spring over axle conversion kit. If you want real off road performance, then this complete lift kit system is for you!

Shotpeening increases tensile strength and reduces fatigue while lessening the material thickness required. The thinner material allows for increased wheel travel and provides a softer ride.
Bolt-style leaf alignment clamps prevent leaves from fanning out and allow the leaves to twist and flex, yielding higher articulation.
Each spring is preset using hydraulic stress to reduce fatigue in the steel and prevent sagging.
Some applications include leaf springs with steel encased rubber bushings. Other applications include blue urethane bushings.
Anti-friction pads are placed between the leaves to reduce friction within the spring and noise from metal-to-metal contact.
Tapered and roll-pointed leaves add flexibility and provides an even deflection rate. Tapering allows a smoother transition between leaves as compression takes place, resulting in a softer ride with increased wheel travel.
Springs are either cold wound with chrome silicon 9254 or hot wound with 5160 to guarantee long life.
BDS coil springs are designed to withstand full coil bind. In other words, you can smash our coils to totally flat and they will return to their original height.
A polyester based powder coat is applied to ensure flexibility and durability.
Each spring is preset with a hydraulic stress to reduce fatigue in the steel and prevent sagging.
Shotpeening increases tensile strength and allows for maximum wheel travel without sacrificing the life of the spring.
