All BDS Suspension lift kits come with the security of knowing you purchased the finest lift kit in the aftermarket suspension industry. We back our commitment to engineering reliable, quality 4x4 off-road Jeep and truck suspension products with our unique "No BS Hardcore Lifetime Warranty".
If you are the original purchaser of any BDS lift kit and it breaks, we will give you a new part. Period.
Designed to take full advantage of the Raptor's FOX LiveValve front coilovers and rear shocks, this new systems improve ground clearance with clearance for 37" tires while maintaining ride quality and handling characteristics.
There are several similarities between the Ford Raptor and standard F150 chassis allowing BDS to integrate several of the existing FMVSS No.126 (ESC system) compliant F150 kit components into this new Raptor system. Up front this 4" system utilizes a pair of 1/4" thick one-piece laser cut steel high clearance crossmembers to reposition the SVT lower control arm along with a multipoint differential relocation system and heavy duty differential skid plate. This creates a solid subframe and gives additional offroad protection whether you are charging through the open desert of out on a backcountry trail. A pair of CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles are supplied to reposition front tie rod mounts and integrate with the factory control arms. For these newer LiveValve-equipped Raptors lower strut extensions are supplied to provide the 4" lift. These allow additional suspension clearance are allow use of the FOX LiveValve shock package. Also included are sway bar relocation brackets to maintain correct operating angles, alignment cam bolts, a billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer, brake line brackets to allow adequate slack at full suspension droop, and new front skid mounting brackets to reposition the signature Raptor front aluminum skid plate.
Out back BDS supplies a 5" block and u-bolt kit replace the factory block and level the stance of the Raptor along with a 4" rear block option for a lower "prerunner" stance. The rear blocks include a bump stop wing for proper bump stop engagement offroad. Also supplied are a pair of axle mounted shock extension brackets to work with the Raptor's LiveValve FOX piggyback shocks. As with all BDS suspension lifts, this new Ford Raptor 4" lift kit is backed by Factory Protection Plus giving you the confidence to use it and abuse it out on the trail. Take your new Raptor to new heights with BDS Suspension.

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.
