Shock Option: FOX 2.0 Performance Series

Designed to improve stance, performance, and capability. BDS Suspension has designed this 4-inch lift kit for your 1976-1981 Jeep CJ5 and CJ7. This kit includes everything necessary to set your truck up right with clearance for up to 33" tires.

This 4-inch lift kit includes front and rear Glide-Ride leaf springs with new u-bolts, steering pitman arm, transfer case drop, 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.

  1. Vehicles equipped with the optional Dana 44 axle will require 040005 (Qty. 4) U-bolts listed in the accessories.
  2. If your vehicle is equipped with manual steering, you can buy the kit without the PS pitman arm, but BDS Suspension does not offer a manual steering pitman arm. You will need to aquire this from another source.
  3. If your vehicle is equipped with an anti-sway bar, a sway bar extension kit (available in the accessories section ) will be necessary for your sway bar to function properly.
  4. If your CJ is heavy in the rear ( ie. Hard top with full size spare) you should consider the 114208 add-a-leaf kit in the options to stiffen up the rear leaf springs and reduce the possibility of low rear ride height. This is recommended for all CJ8 Scramblers.
  5. Shackle bushing kit 074002 listed in the accessories is highly recommended.
  6. Extended brake lines recommended.
