BDS Suspension Jeep XJ Cherokee 8.5" Lift System
Jun 27, 2008
BDS Suspension has another entry in the "big" lift kit market. Owners of 87-01 Jeep Cherokee XJ's now have another option with the release of this all new 8.5" long arm system. BDS has been designing their kits with the dual usage owner in mind, meaning this kit will work well off road but still be useable by those that use their trucks for the daily commute as well. A quick look at this kit will show that it doesn't use heim joints which in practice will make this kit last longer and require less maintenance.
This BDS kit makes use of a 4-link system featuring 4 massive control arms that are fully adjustable. The upper control arms come standard with a flex joint and the lower control arms are available with either a greaseable urethane mount or flex arms. These control arms are attached to a ¬ thick steel belly pan that not only improves off road protection, but increases structural rigidity of the suspension system. Kevlar lined stainless steel brake lines are included as well as BDS Ultimate front sway bar disconnects. A heavy-duty front adjustable track bar is included to properly center the axle.
The rear is lifted with new BDS Glide-Ride leaf springs, a 2" block and extended length shackles that help these springs really flex. The Glide-Ride leaf springs come with anti-friction pads, tapered leafs and bolt style leaf alignment clamps.
8.5" kits are available now at BDS dealers across North America. These kits will only work on 4.0 and automatic transmission equipped XJ's. You will need a slip yoke eliminator kit and CV rear driveshaft which are available separately.
