Designed to improve stance performance and capability the BDS 6-inch lift kit for the 2000-2006 Chevy Avalanche Suburban or Tahoe and GMC Yukon 1500 4WD is a must have upgrade. For maximum ground clearance BDS designed a No Torsion Bar Drop System where the torsion bars are mounted directly to the top of the lower a-arm eliminating the need to drop the torsion bar cross-member. This kit includes everything necessary to set your truck up right with clearance for up to 35" tires.

This kit takes advantage of BDS's tried and true high-clearance design for improved ground clearance strength and offroad protection while correcting suspension and steering geometry for great on-road handling characteristics. Up front the kit utilizes torsion bar relocation brackets high-arched 1/4-inch thick steel crossmembers along with a multipiece differential relocation brackets and heavy duty skid plates built for offroad protection. Steering geometry is corrected at the new taller ride height with CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles. These combined with the provided sway bar drops bump stop extensions brake line brackets CV spacers supplied hardware and more provide a comprehensive front suspension lift ready for whatever you throw at it.

The rear lift is accomplished with new coil springs track bar relocation sway bar links and extended bump stops. Also for the rear choose between brackets for Auto Ride equipped vehicles or precision tuned NX2 Nitro and premium FOX 2.0 Performance Series shocks.
