Shock Option: FOX 2.0 Performance Series

Go big with your 1977-1987 Chevy and GMC 3/4 ton truck or SUV to raise the bar to new heights with this 8-inch lift kit from BDS Suspension. Designed to improve stance, performance, and capability of the K20 and K25, this kit includes everything necessary to set your truck up right with clearance for up to 38" tires.

Up front the lift kit includes Glide-Ride leaf springs, 4" steering arm and 3" steering block for steering correction, brake line brackets, sway bar drop brackets and precision tuned NX2 nitrogen charged shocks. In the rear this kit utilizes a set of Glide-Ride leaf springs for the ultimate performance on and off road, new u-bolts and a matching set of NX2 Nitro shocks.

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. Upgrading to BDS Glide-Ride leaf springs will provide flexibility throughout the suspension cycle.
