As a supportive merchant, we understand you value both quality and affordability when it comes to your truck. That's why our CARLI SUSPENSION 2.5" LEVELING SYSTEM - DIESEL is perfect for you. With Carli SPEC 2.0" Diameter, Internal Reservoir shocks, our system offers a tune that ensures a comfortable and smooth ride, whether you're on the road, in town, on the highway, or towing/hauling. Plus, the 2.5" lift height eliminates the need for front or rear geometry correction, just like our 3" Systems.
At the heart of this system is a 2.5” lift, Linear Rate Coil Spring paired to matched travel mono-tube, internal reservoir, Carli SPEC 2.0. These shocks boast 6063 Aluminum construction, anodized body for corrosion resistance, 5/8″ hardened steel chrome plated shaft, full serviceability & rebuildability and are built with 1-peice bushings in the 6061 billet rod-ends. These shocks are spec’d with a premium 5WT oil to balance lubricity, consistent damping and the widest available range in temperature variation. We back these with a 1-year warranty, serviced by Carli. More details on these shocks can be found HERE.
The rear shocks are also included with this system and have been custom tuned to maximize the ride quality for the factory rear coil springs. As the rear springs remain unmodified, load capacity is maintained while predictability is improved. For those that aren’t looking for massive increase in travel or big shocks but still desire a level stance and improved ride quality and handling characteristics, this is the perfect kit.
The front axle will be slightly pulled to the Driver’s side following installation of the lift; this can be corrected with the addition of our Adjustable Track Bar. Further, ride quality can be substantially increased with the addition of our Torsion Sway Bar. We recommend a 35” tire on a wheel that’s no more than 9” wide with 5.5”-6” Backspace. An 18” diameter wheel will be best to ensure optimal ride quality (more rubber = better small bump compliance) and an unloaded tire pressure of 45F/40R is recommended. The addition of a Carli Low-Mount Steering Stabilizer is recommended for any tire over factory size. For more details, see our article on wheel and tire selection and tire pressures:
**This system will NOT be upgradeable to any other Carli Suspension Systems.** It’s designed to be a solution for customers wanting a quality system with minimal lift and part inclusion. We recommend slight eccentric bolt compensation to correct caster after the lift as there are no Radius Arm Drops. For this reason, customers may experience a slight bow in the coil spring. We did not experience a coil bow in any of our test trucks but it’s possible at the 2.5” lift height without a Radius Arm Drop Bracket.
This system is NOT compatible with trucks equipped with the factory auto-leveling air assist.
