More Information

This premium quality BDS Suspension BDS196H 6.5 inch lift kit for GMC Sierra 2500HD / 3500HD trucks will lift your vehicle enough to fit up to 37 inch tires giving a more aggressive stance. Featuring 1/4 inch thick laser cut High Clearance arched crossmembers that blend perfectly with the angle of the factory installed lower control arms for a completely integrated look. Torsion bars are mounted directly to the top of the lower a-arm eliminating the need to drop the torsion bar crossmember. Also included are ductile iron replacement steering knuckles are supplied to maintain proper steering geometry. The front differential is repositioned with BDS's multipoint relocation bracket system to secure the front differential to keep CV axle angles at a minimum. A front skid plate and differential skid plate come standard, to lock everything together, creating a nearly indestructible sub frame for extreme off road protection. In the rear you can choose from 5 inch (slightly tail high stance), 4 inch (level stance) or 3 inch (slightly tail low stance) blocks.
