New Steering Stabilizers From BDS

BDS offers single and dual steering stabilizers to meet your on-road and off-road performance needs. Available in both 5500-series (white body) and 9500-series (brushed stainless body) the stabilizers improve drivability by reducing front end shimmy caused by oversized tires. Stabilizers use a twin tube hydraulic design, with 5/8″ hardened chrome shaft and polyurethane bushings.

BDS single stabilizer kits mount in place of the OE stabilizer for quick and easy installation to improve handling performance. BDS dual steering stabilizers are available with your choice of 5500-series, 9500-series, or Fox 2.0 stabilizers all vastly improving the handling performance of late model Ram 2500/3500 trucks with oversized tires. These new dual stabilizer kits feature an end-to-end design built off of a 3/16″ thick axle mounted center bracket and pair of tie rod mounted outer brackets. The kit mounts above the tie rod for optimal ground clearance while keeping stabilizer out of harm’s way when off-road. Brackets use a high quality black e-coated finish with stainless steel “BDS” center nameplate for a great looking finish. Installation is a breeze with bolt-on design easy to follow instructions.

BDS offers a heavy duty replacement adjustable front track bar for late model radius arm Ram HDs. Constructed from 1-3/8″ solid steel stock this new adjustable track bar is built to handle on and off-road abuse and uses a 1-3/8″-12 fine threaded pinch bolt design turnbuckle to allow easy tuning to properly recenter the front axle for a range of lift heights. The track bar is formed for proper clearance around critical front end components and features gusseted ends for additional rigidity. The ends utilize high-durometer polyurethane bushings with thick-walled steel sleeves for strength and reliability. Parts come with a high quality black e-coated finish for a great look and excellent corrosion resistance. Requires 4″ of lift or more to be installed.
