After months of design, testing and American manufacturing, BDS Suspension has released the first lift kit for the new Ram 1500 truck. This new system is built to the highest quality standards for on-road comfort and handling, while improving off-road capability with clearance for 35-37-inch tires.
At the heart of this new 6-inch system, BDS utilizes a pair of quarter-inch thick laser cut high clearance crossmembers to maximize clearance and provide a solid mounting point for the OE lower control arms. These, paired with the heavy duty front skid plate system, create a rigid sub-frame while adding protection for vital steering and driveline components.
A pair of specially designed ductile iron replacement steering knuckles is supplied to maintain proper steering geometry for ESC system compatibility. These connect to the factory steering with a pair of heavy duty replacement tie rod ends included in the kit. The front differential is repositioned with a BDS multipoint relocation bracket system to secure the front differential and keep CV axle angles at a minimum. A billet aluminum front driveshaft spacer is also supplied along with longer hardware to allow the reinstallation of the factory driveshaft.
Additional ride height on this particular kit comes from a set of top-mounted steel fabricated strut spacers along with preload spacers to maintain ride quality and handling characteristics. Rounding out the front of this kit is a pair of stainless steel braided extended brake line and sway bar relocation brackets.
In the rear, the factory coil springs are replaced with 5-inch ProRide dual rate coil springs to lift and level the stance. With the additional ride height the rear suspension geometry is corrected with control arm relocation brackets, a bolt-on rear track bar relocation bracket to re-center the axle, extended length sway bar links to correct operating angle, and bump stop extensions to properly limit up travel.
The rear of these kits are rounded out 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.
All kits come finished in a durable textured black powdercoat and sent with all hardware packs to complete the install along with step-by-step installation instructions. All BDS kits include Factory Protection Plus for the ultimate extended warranty to include BDS’s No Fine Print Warranty, ESC System compatibility and a 5year-100mile drivetrain warranty to match the dealer. Improve the look and capability of your 2019 Ram 1500 truck with this new 6-inch lift system from BDS Suspension.
