The Pintop is a versatile shock package that every Super Duty owner can benefit from. By elevating the Super Duty Platform and incorporating 2.5" diameter shocks (with 55% more piston surface area than 2.0" shocks), it's clear that these trucks should come equipped with 2.5" shocks from the start. Though higher-end systems offer more off-road capability, they do not compare to the value and quality of the Pintop. This is why it remains our top-selling system for years to come.
The Pintop system boasts Carli specific, blueprinted, King 2.5” shocks on all four corners. In an effort to provide customers with the best product, 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 the only thing that matters to us, 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 can’t 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. The shocks are finished with King oil good to -55° F. Note that 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.
