2" BDS Suspension Lift BDS

This lift is advertised as 2", it actually gave me about 3-3.25". This kit rides very smooth, the shocks are nice and BDS has an awesome warranty!!

2" BDS Suspension Lift BDS

The kit comes with the springs and the shocks.

It took only a couple hours to install. It rides as smooth if not smoother than stock. I got no vibes after the install(but I did install a BL/MML at the same time. I chose(sp?) this over a BB because my 6 yr old springs were sagging a bit. Also BDS has a one of the best warrenties out there. The kit cost me $375 shipped. The only thing I regret it not saving up for a bigger lift, but this is a great kit for some one who will be satisfied with just a 2" lift.

Before lift:


After:




And here's what it looks like now with 33x12.50 TSL radials

A buddy of mine recommended this lift to me,..........I am glad I listened to him,...............although I have a slight vibe , BDS delivers a great product,.................pretty easy to install and the ride is perfect,...........getting ready to put 32" tires on it ...............I would recommend any of their products ,..........I even put their single shock steering stabilizer on it .............

Since I'm not too sure what make my lift was, I picked BDS because it mentions 2". There was minimal vibration at first, along with the dreaded "death wobble". I cured the wobble by having the wheels balanced.

Good lift for driving and handling. Seams to be a tuff spring but could flex better

It looks great! It is nice to be a little higher than before. Still have the smooth ride. I also still have the stock 16's on it. Getting bigger tires to complete the look and feel I am after.

Drives awesome, had some vibes, but a few washers fixed that. With the 31's, the Jeep sits really nice.

budget lift, i installed some 31-1050 tires and needed the flexin room. its alright for now, expect they "klunk" a lot because they are not attached, and the spring moves a bit.

2" of lift, not much to say lol, same install as most BB, gives the clearance for 32's but 31's look just right on it.

Easy to install with a basic tool kit and a spring compresser. You can rent a spring compresser and any parts house. Took me about four hours to install the lift.
