Hello Everyone. JamesDowning contacted me a week or so back and asked me to join up as a vendor....well here I am.

We (BDS) really appreciate all of you that have bought/used/recommended our suspension products over the years. I would have to admit, when we first designed and produced this lift we did it on a hunch. With the large volume of TBs and Envoys out there today we figured there had to be at least a small market for a lift. Well, our expectations have been far exceeded and believe it or not you guys here and at Trailvoy are only a small sampling of the BDS equipped "Trailvoys" on the road around the world.

As for me personally, I know my way around a TB (I own an '03) and have intimate knowledge of all things BDS and a lot of other stuff too. I will do my best to answer any questions you might have and to keep up to date on topics on the forum. If there is something specific you need, feel free to PM me here, email me at matt@bds-suspension.com or email our tech support at tech@bds-suspension.com.

Thanks again,
Matt
BDS Suspension Co.

Welcome! Thank you for joining!

What do you feel is the best shock option for the rear of our trucks? I, for example, have the BDS suspension lift all around, but I also have the Tahoe Z71 rear springs... I have a total of 3.5-4" of lift in the rear over stock. I've been running the factory Tahoe shocks. I'm not terribly pleased with the ride. Prior, I had ran Bilstein HDs in the rear, but I was even less pleased...

I split the shock discussion into it's own thread.

Glad you're here Matt and thanks for getting involved with the discussion, you provide a unique point of view for us to learn from.

Thanks again for joining up!

:thumright: Thank you Matt for being here and thank you James for being so proactive for us. :thumleft:

This would be a good opportunity for you to tell us why we should purchase from BDS rather than the other kits available and the pros and cons.
