BDS Worth the money?
Okay, well had enough for the RC 6" lift, then i had to pay $356 to get my EVAP Valve relocated, because the solenoid was shot, and i didn't want to have to deal with it getting plugged anymore. So, now I'll be getting a personal loan from family for this lift, because i really need it, and want it. So, i was wondering if you all think that the 6" BDS Suspension lift is worth $1,741? Lifetime warranty and parts souds terrific! Especially because, this truck is not leaving the family, or the farm. So, parts are taken care of.

BDS is well worth the money and more. Their customer service/tech support is outstanding. Their warranty is by far the best in the business. I'll never buy anything esle other than BDS....2005 Chevy Silverado Z71 in Black

Where would be the best place to buy the BDS lift? I was wanting to buy it directly from them, but they're more expensive then the distributors.

BDS worth the money
BDS is worth the money. Make sure when you shop for a kit, you get the price for the newer non-lowering torsen bar kit. They make both types. BDS sells direct to retail customers, but i would shop around because shipping up to you has to be $$$$$.

Have you checked there website for dealers near you? Make sure who ever you buy from if the shipping price includes handling charges. Ive seen customers get charged $100-150 dollars just for putting on a pallet and shrink wrapping. (the handling charge) This was ontop of the shipping charge.

I found a place in Vancouver(not local but still Canadian, so i can use Canadian funds, and i wont get charged border fees) that distributes for BDS. I requested a quote from them, this is what they said.
Thank you for taking the time to send us a price quote request. I have the following prices for you on parts for your 02 Chev 1500 4x4.
1)BDS 6.5” HC lift system with BDS 5500 Series shocks (KITK106H-BDS) : 1824.69
Shipping : 80.00
This kit is the non torsion bar drop one, i believe, unless he cannot read, i was so specific when i requested a quote, i basically spelled out what the kit was, all caps saying NON TORSION BAR DROP. So, I'll ask and make sure.
