CARLI SUSPENSION 03-2012 RAM 2500/3500 4X4 CARLI DOMINATOR SERIES SHOCK PACKAGE
May have applicable lead time. Direct ships from Manufacturer
This is the true, Jack of all trades Shock Package offering the most on-road comfort of any short-arm system in the Carli lineup. The Dominator rides better than any other system on the road while boasting off-road manners that make the truck feel half its size. This is the end of our “all-around” shock packages; anything above the 3.0” King will sacrifice on-road ride for off-road capability. For the customer looking for the best balance of on and off-road capability, without leaning too far in either direction, wanting to maintain the factory short arms, this is the perfect candidate.
The Dominator boasts front Carli Signature tuned, King 3.0” remote reservoir shocks so large, we needed bore the factory spring buckets for them to cycle properly. We include rear piggy-back 3.0″ shocks to match the fronts. As the old adage goes, there’s no replacement for displacement. In an effort to provide customers with the best product, we do not sell off-the-shelf King 3.0s. We designed a custom piston to determine proper base flow rates to ensure the shock works well in the heavy-duty truck platform; we then tuned the shocks around the custom pistons based on seat-of-the-pants feel. We round off ALL our King shocks with shafts machined and polished from a solid piece of 17-4 Stainless. Unlike King’s standard shafts, there is no coating to wear off, weather is far less likely to hurt them and if there is a small chip, you can round the edges with emery cloth to ensure the seal housing isn’t damaged as they’re not brittle like the stock, hardened shafts. All King shocks are built with a plated steel body. If subjected to inclement weather for extended periods, we recommend wrapping your shocks in 3M to provide a moisture barrier that’s replaceable.
Shock Towers are required to install. Additionally, the Upper and Lower front spring buckets will need to be bored to 4.5″ and rear shock cross member will need to be clearances and plated with the Carli Gusset Kit.
Addition Fabricated Axle Truss and Rear Shock Mounts are HIGHLY recommended.
