Following the launch of 6″ Performance Coilover Conversion 4-Link System for late model Ford Super Duty 4WD trucks, BDS Suspension brings next level performance with new DSC adjustable FOX 2.5 coilovers adding impressive performance and easy tuning. The new system features the tried and true BDS 4-link conversion paired with FOX 2.5 coilovers with remote DSC (dual speed compression) adjusters for tool-free tuning of the high-speed and low-speed compression settings giving you the ability to dial in the performance for any terrain. As with all BDS products this system includes Factory Protection Plus (FPP) giving you the peace of mind to use it and abuse it wherever your next adventure may take you. FPP combines BDS’s No Fine Print Lifetime Warranty and a 5-year 60,000-mile drivetrain warranty at no additional cost to the consumer. Transform your coil sprung radius arm F250/F350 into a chase prepped, race tuned, Moab proven trail monster with BDS’s new 6″ DSC Coilover 4-Link System.
Ford Super Duty C/O Lift Kits: BDS Suspension adds to its extensive lineup of coilover suspension systems with new 6″ DSC Coilover 4-Link Systems for the 2011-2016 Ford F250/F350 Super Duty 4WD diesel trucks. Designed to allow the installation of Fox 2.5 factory series DSC remote reservoir coilovers, this new system far surpasses the performance and capability of your Super Duty’s stock suspension with more stability, improved handling, and better dampening in any terrain. Michigan built and Moab tested, these new coilover conversion 4-link systems are built to perform.
The system utilizes a pair of Fox 2.5 factory series remote DSC coilovers tuned specifically to optimize suspension performance on the diesel equipped Ford Super Duty. The 8″ travel coilovers feature a smooth bore and honed seamless alloy body, 7/8″ hardened steel carbon shaft, Eibach coil springs, black anodized machined 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounts and FOX’s DSC (dual speed compression) adjustment technology. DSC is the next big thing in suspension performance allowing for easy adjustment of the your truck’s suspension compression dampening so you can dial in the ideal ride performance to soak up the bumps, both large and small. The DSC has 12 adjustment points for the high speed compression as well as 10 adjustment points for the low speed compression allowing you to make large or small changes to further improve your performance. Adjustments can be made by simply twisting the “blue” high speed and “gold” low speed compression knobs located on the end of the remote reservoir of the FOX 2.5 coilovers. No tools or shop adjustments needed, allowing you to tune the suspension out on the trail.
The key to mounting these new DSC coilovers are the new brackets supplied by BDS. In place of the factory stamped steel coil buckets BDS includes a pair of the massive 1/4″ thick steel, gusseted construction coilover mounting brackets designed to bolt in place using the factory frame holes. This provides a stout mounting point for the new Fox 2.5 coilovers with provisions for the remote reservoirs as well as an auxiliary shock. The auxiliary shock mount will accept anything from the supplied Fox 2.0 Performance series shocks up to the massive 3.0 Fox Factory series cylinders. At the axle, new double-shear C/O mounting brackets bolt in for a direct replacement to the factory coil seats. All brackets are finished in a durable textured black powder coat finish with integrated mounting tabs to retain the factory brake and ABS lines.
To complement the increased performance of the new coilovers, BDS designed the kit around the popular BDS 4-link conversion to upgrade the stock stamped steel factory radius arms. The BDS Super Duty 4-Link conversion has long been a popular solution for 2005-2016 Super Duty owners looking to improve their trucks drivability and performance. The full replacement 4-link frame brackets bolt into factory holes and create a solid mounting location for the massive tubular 4-link arms. These arms allow the front suspension geometry to be optimized for control and handling through all types of terrain. The front portion of the lift system also includes a forged drop pitman arm and front track bar relocation bracket to correct steering and track bar angles as well as to center the axle under the vehicle. Front bump stop extensions, sway bar drops, and brake line relocation brackets round out the front of this system. In the rear, full replacement BDS Glideride leaf springs provide the lift needed to level and level the stance. The springs are a 5-leaf design with built in overload leaf to assist when carrying heavy loads. New black e-coated u-bolts, brake line brackets and Fox 2.0 performance gas shocks are supplied to round out the 6″ coilover conversion 4-link system.
