Shock Option: FOX 2.0 Performance Series

Designed to improve stance, performance, and capability. BDS Suspension has designed this 2.5-inch lift kit for your 1953-1968 Jeep CJ5 and CJ6. This kit includes everything necessary to set your truck up right with clearance for up to 31" tires.

This 2.5-inch lift kit includes front and rear Glide-Ride leaf springs with new u-bolts and round out these kits with your choice of specially tuned NX2 nitro series gas shocks or FOX 2.0 IFP performance series gas shocks to offer improved damper performance.

Glide-Ride Leaf Springs

Built to outperform, BDS engineered the Glide-Ride leaf springs into a multi-leaf progressive spring rate design that provides a smooth ride with any load. This is accomplished with an exclusive triple-stage leaf spring design. These spring feature tapered leafs, anti-friction pads, bolt style leaf alignment clamps and a full military wrap to protect your spring eyes from the rocks. Upgrading to BDS Glide-Ride leaf springs will provide flexibility throughout the suspension cycle.
