Rear Lift Option: Light Duty Leaf Springs

Designed to improve stance, performance, and capability. BDS Suspension has designed this 3.5-inch lift kit for your 1987-1995 Jeep Wrangler YJ. This kit includes everything necessary to set your truck up right with clearance for up to 33" tires.

This 3.5-inch lift kit includes front and rear Glide-Ride leaf springs with new u-bolts, front and rear track bar relocation brackets to center the axle, brake line brackets, power steering pitman arm, bump stop extensions, and a transfer case drop kit to ease the drive line angles. Round out this kit with specially tuned NX2 nitro 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.

Features & Benefits

  • Glideride leaf springs to provide full lift height and increased capacity
  • Front and rear track bar relocation brackets to center the axle
  • Transfer case drop kit to ease the drive line angles
  • Standard NX2 Nitro shocks with vehicle-specific valving for better control
  • Easy, 100% Bolt-on installation

Recommended Tires & Wheels

(Trimming may be required)

  • 33 x 12.5 with 15 x 8 and 3.5 in. Backspace

Rear Lift Option

Select the appropriate rear springs based on the weight of your vehicle and hard top vs. soft top.

  • Light Duty Leaf Springs - Use these light-duty springs if you have a soft top and plan to either run with the stock spare or no spare at all.
  • Heavy Duty Leaf Springs - Use these springs if you plan to run additional weight beyond the stock spare and a soft top. A must for hard top applications and will still ride great when you take your hard top off.
  1. May require driveshaft lengthening for 13" (u-joint to u-joint) driveshaft.
  2. May require larger diameter driveshaft if equipped with a 41-1/2" front driveshaft.
  3. Extended shackles recommended to clear military wrap.
  4. Models with accessories like hardtop, rear tire carrier, roof rack etc., should use #004351 springs on front and rear.
  5. When combining lifted shackles with a 3.5" suspension system, a tail shaft eliminator kit and a "CV" style rear driveshaft may be required to eliminate driveline vibration.
  6. Pitman arms will NOT fit Yj models equiped with manual steering.
