Coldwater, MI—March 6, 2013 — Now available from BDS Suspension, 2.5", 4", 6", and 6'' performance series lift kits for the 2013 Ford F150. These systems improve the performance and looks of your late model Ford while retaining the handling characteristics owners have come to expect.
The 2.5" leveling kit brings together a new top strut mount spacer and pre-load spacer for improved ride quality and cornering performance while allowing for up to 35" tires. Unlike other leveling kits on the market, this 2-piece system won't max out the upper ball joint during suspension travel. One inch rear block kit and rear shocks are also available.
The 4" suspension lift kit utilizes a pair of one-piece 1/4" steel crossmembers, CNC-machined ductile iron steering knuckles, differential supports (4wd kits), differential skid plate (4wd kits), upper strut mount, bump stop extensions, sway bar relocation, new cam bolts, and billet aluminum driveshaft spacer. In the rear a BDS offset pin block kit recenters the rear axle in the wheelwell, while a brake line extensions and your choice of rear shocks round out the kit allowing for up to 35" tires to be installed.
The 6" system utilizes many of the same components available in the 4" system, the heavy duty crossmembers, over built steering knuckles compliant with factory traction control parameters, differential and sway bar relocation, driveshaft spacer as well as includes replacement replacement gas charged struts, replacement 5" offset pin block kit (eliminates OE block and recenters axle) and includes your choice of BDS 5500 or Fox 2.0 shocks. This system will clear up to 37" tires.
Finally, BDS offers the 6" Performance Series System that upgrades the standard 6" lift kit with Fox 2.5 remote reservoir coil-overs, new reservoir mounts, and rear Fox 2.0 shocks for the ultimate in off-road handling and performance. Coil-overs come pre-tuned to provide 6" of lift right out of the box, however are height adjustable as well as rebuildable allowing room for up to 37" tires.

Smooth-bore, clear coated, zinc plated alloy body

7/8" hard chrome plated heat treated alloy steel shaft
High flow piston design with specially formulated race oil
