Default New Release by BDS > 2wd 6" High-Clearance System


BDS Suspension is now shipping the 2009-2010 2WD F150 6″ High-Clearance suspension system. This High-Clearance IFS system is a true blend of performance, appearance and function. Maintaining the OE control arm movements ensures an OE style ride with a desert racing appearance. These crossmembers blend perfectly with the lower control arm angles to give a truly OE appearance.

Combine the HC geometry with the custom valved off-road struts and this system is hard to beat. Unlike the spacer kits on the market, the BDS system comes with custom struts that are made to handle the increased forces of larger tires and wheels to offer a factory like ride on road and still handle those off road excursions. Unlike most systems on the market, the rear kit includes an offset spring plate to shift the axle back to the center of the wheel well ensuring those 37’s will have plenty of room. The complete system is available in our traditional Granite powder coating or a textured black powder coating. Optional rear 9500 series rear gas shocks are also available.

I'm not being a smartass, I am being real. What is the point of lifting a 2wd vehicle? I know people do it, but is there an advantage that I am missing?

A lot of people do it. I'd sooner lower it but that's my own preference.

I would have to agree with you. But this is a nice kit, what does something like this go for?

I'd have to guess today somewhere in the teens.
You can spend over 2g's (canadian) easily on the 4wheel kits so this should be in the same ballpark.

I'm hoping when Matt decides to get a "REAL" 6" lift, he will sell me his for a good price.

That's something I really want to do, but is no way in my budget.

I think you should lower yours then you can call it an AWD instead!

Advantage of High-Clearance suspension system to improve the ride along with upper and lower long arms to reduce caster change through the wheel travel improving the ride and handling in all types of driving situations.
