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.
From the factory the Power Wagon models have roughly a 2" lift installed over the base models RAM 2500 and this system nets an additional 2" of lift (equivalent to 4" over standard RAM 2500) allowing clearance for 35" tires and improved offroad capability. More than just a "leveling kit" this system replaces the from coil springs and is designed to level out the stance while correcting suspension geometry.
Up front these systems use a pair of replacement 2" ProRide progressive-rate coil springs to achieve the extra height and offer controlled performance in the harshest of terrains. A high strength adjustable track bar with center pinch-bolt turnbuckle is supplied to re-center the front axle once lifted. Additionally a pair of extended length front sway bar links correct the OE sway bar operating angle for optimal performance while the replacement polyurethane bump stops properly limit up travel and brake line brackets to allow sufficient slack at full suspension droop. This kit is designed to take advantage of the Power Wagon's OE radius arms and is available with BDS's HD radius arm upgrade to add strength, clearance and caster correction. Buttoning up the front of this kit is your choice of BDS NX2 gas shocks or FOX 2.0 performance series IFP gas shocks offer improved ride and damper performance.
In the rear of the RAM 2500 kits a pair of 1.25" steel fabricated bolt-on coil spacers are used to level out the stance and maintain load capacity. These combined with the rear bump stop extension and your choice of NX2 or FOX 2.0 Performance Series IFP shock rounds out the rear of these2" lift systems. Get the look and the ride you are after with these new 2" lift systems from 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.
