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.
BDS Suspension offeres a 3" suspension lift kit to improve the look and performance of late model 4Runners with clearance for up to 285/70r17 tires. Based on the current FJ Cruiser systems, this new fitment is up to whatever use and abuse you can throw at it. Up front the system uses a combination top mounted strut spacer along with a preload spacer to lift the vehicle and retain the factory geometry. This setup allows the suspension to operate smoothly without forcing upper ball joints to max out at full droop causing premature wear, a common issue with other 3" kits that just use spacer to provide lift.
In the rear this kit replaces the factory coil springs with 2" BDS ProRide coil springs to level the stance. These coil springs are capable of full coil bind from repeated use and abuse and guaranteed to always spring back to original ride height. With the new stance set, NX² series shocks are used to retain the ride quality and allow full articulation of the rear suspension. Lastly the rear sway bar links are replaced with longer links to allow the sway bar to operate in its ideal position with the lift installed.

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.
