Up front the lift kit includes gas-specific Pro-Ride coil springs 4-Link control arms with conversion mounts forged drop pitman arm and track bar bracket for steering correction bump stops brake line brackets and precision tuned NX2 or FOX 2.0 nitrogen charged shocks.

At this height the transfer case needs to be indexed to allow use of the factory front driveshaft so an indexing ring and new transmission crossmember are supplied. In the rear this kit utilizes progressive rate Pro-Ride coil springs track bar relocation bracket to correct axle positioning bump stop extensions sway bar links and a matching set of NX2 Nitro or FOX 2.0 Performance shocks.

4-Link Conversion

Convert the factory stamped steel radius arms over to the BDS 4-link to optimize suspension geometry for better handling characteristics while adding strength and stability. This bolt-on upgrade utilizes high-strength 1/4-inch steel brackets that allow mounting of HD upper and lower control arms to correct axle positioning while limiting caster change throughout wheel travel.

Pro-Ride Coil Springs

A pair of full-length gas-specific progressive rate Pro-Ride coil springs are supplied to provide the correct lift height and smooth predictable ride across various terrains. Manufactured from high tensile steel our direct OE replacement coil springs are engineered with properly sized wire diameter. This results in maximum reliability without premature coil bind.

Steering Correction

To optimize steering geometry once lifted a forged drop pitman arm is used to minimize the steering angle and pair it with a heavy duty track bar drop bracket to keep them in phase through suspension travel while recentering the front axle.

Features & Benefits:

  • Heavy duty 4-link arms improve strength handling and caster control
  • High strength progressive rate coil springs for a great ride on any terrain
  • Track bar relocation brackets to re-position axle
  • Forged drop pitman arm to correct steering angles
  • Front sway bar correction to maintain handling performance
  • HD transmission crossmember and t-case indexing ring to correct front driveline angles and allow use of factory driveshafts
