New Fox Racing 2.5” Remote Reservoir Coil-Over Upgrade for BDS 7” Lift Kits
Jamie Alberico | Oct 12, 2012 | Comments 7
Fans of high clearance designs can now look forward to improved ride and performance with the Fox Racing 2.5” coil-over for 7” BDS suspension lift kits. Available as an upgrade for current BDS Tundra strut extension lift kits – or as a complete 7” performance suspension – the Fox Racing Coil-Overs are designed for 2007-2012 2WD and 4WD Tundras.
A coil-over system is one of the best ways to lift your Tundra, at least as far as performance and durability are concerned. If you lift your truck and don’t install a new set of shocks and springs that adjust the ride to compensate for the new suspension geometry, you may notice that your Tundra’s handling is “loose” up front.
This loose front end feeling is most noticeable while driving on extreme terrain, but you may feel it while driving on the street if your lift is big enough.
With a Fox Racing 2.5” Remote Reservoir Coil-Over added to your lift kit, your truck will ride more smoothly and perform better off-road.
The BDS kit with Fox coil-overs includes CNC machined steering knuckles that offer stock-like suspension geometry and handling. According to BDS, you’ll get the high clearance look you love without sacrificing the Tundra’s handling.
There’s also that the outward facing Fox Racing logo on the face of the coil-over adds an aesthetic appeal – looks very beefy.
The Fox Racing 2.5” remote reservoir coil-overs feature:
- Smooth-bore, clear coated, zinc plated allow body.
- Black anodized 6061-T6 billet aluminum mounting components
- 7/8 hard chrome plated heat treated alloy steel shaft
- High flow position design with specially formulated race oil
- External reservoir separates shock oil from high-pressure nitrogen
- Easy bolt on installation, coil spring preload set for proper ride height
The complete BDS 7” performance system includes:
- One 1/4” thick laser cut crossmembers tied together by a full width heavy duty skid plate to create a rigid, high clearance subframe
- Differential drop brackets
- Extended sway bar links
- Stout CNC machined steering knuckles
- Bump stop extensions
- Read 4” block and u-bolt kit
- Front Fox Racing 2.5” remote reservoir coil-overs
- Rear Fox 2.0 performance shocks
- All necessary hardware
The BDS 7” Coil-Over Suspension Lift Kit starts at $3,500 for both 2WD and 4WD kits.
While we have yet to review the kit first hand, BDS promises that this new kit upgrade will improve overall capabilities. Seems perfectly reasonable to us.

Sounds good and looks great till the price. Sorry can’t see that price.
Fox coil-over replacements for the Tundra are a direct bolt-on. Their length is very close to stock, thus the spring rate must be higher to get the desired amount of lift.
The KORE Tundra kit is a modular system.The first part is the coil-over set up. It’s a lot like the kit that KORE helped Fox develop except the KORE shocks come with longer, softer custom Eibach coil springs, contain different valving, and offer more wheel travel than the Fox shock.
Why doesn’t Toyota make wheel well liners available for the tundra. Dodge sells them for the Ram trucks. This sure would help in keeping the crud off of the frame and create some additional profit for the Toyota,etc.
The Fox 2.5 coil-over reservoir shocks for the 7″ BDS lift are everything this article talks about. These things are the real deal; direct replacement, massive and the perfect ride height right out of the box. I was very impressed with the quality of the product and the improved ride quality. They are a little pricey but these are well worth the money. If you order the coil-overs make sure you order the mounting kit or ask if it is included. I have a 2012 Tundra with a 7″ BDS lift and now a fantastic set of new coil-overs.
Where can I get the fox coilovers 2.5 and rear 2.0 as a complete suspension up to a 3″ etc? 7″ too tall for my likings.
There are multiple retailers on line which carry the Fox coil-overs. You can Google Fox 2.5 Coil-overs for example or I have found Auto Anything to be a very good source for most of my after market upgrades. You can order on line, live chat on line or call them direct if you don’t know exactly what you need.
