May have applicable lead time. Direct ships from Manufacturer
Our most popular system, the Pintop kit boasts 2.5″, Remote Reservoir King Shocks. Designed and tuned in house for the customer looking for substantial on-road and off-road performance improvement. Customers can expect a softer ride with more control and bottom-out resistance than the Backcountry.
3.25″ Leveling Coil Springs: Your truck will sit 3”-3.5” higher in the front (cab configuration dependent) with 50% more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. These springs are shot-peened, pre-set and powder coated to ensure optimal performance and finish longevity!
Front, Adjustable Track Bar: When lifting the front end of a straight axle truck, the front axle is pulled off-center unless the proper linkages are addressed. Three inches of front lift equates to an axle shifted toward the driver’s side ¾” and, in the radius arm equipped Rams, lightened caster and slight rearward axle shift. This system includes an Adjustable Track Bar to push the axle back toward the passenger side and provide a stronger link with less deflection for the lifted application.
Front Bump Stop Drop Brackets: Ensures proper cycling of the front suspension withe the extended travel shocks provided.
Radius Arm Drop Brackets: Ensure perfect caster alignment (no need to max adjustments), correct geometry and spring pressures ensuring no bow in your coil spring.
Choice of Torsion Sway Bar or Drop Brackets for the Factory Sway Bar: When pairing added down-travel with the taller ride height, the position of the factory, front sway bar will need to be altered as well. For this, we offer two options; Billet Sway Bar Drop Brackets or the replacement Torsion Sway Bar. The Billet Drop Blocks shift the sway bar down and forward to ensure the factory end links cycle properly throughout the entire extended travel range. Carli’s optional Torsion sway bar removes the entire factory sway bar assembly replacing it with a torsion bar supported by fabricated drop brackets and delrin bushings. Fabricated sway bar arms and dual 5/8” FK heim end links round off the package. This is the single best bang for the buck, ride-quality upgrade offered by Carli Suspension.
Shock Package: The Pintop is the Backcountry on steroids, take the description for the Backcountry and throw an exponent on it. This system is our Jack-of-all-trades system from which every Ram owner would benefit. Raising the Ram platform then adding the 2.5” diameter shocks will support the argument that these trucks should come equipped with 2.5” shocks from the factory. This system is our most popular, all around suspension system. It was tuned and rides best with 18” wheels and 37” tires. Both of the aforementioned are recommended. These shocks are specific to the air-ride platform, totally different tune and rear travel spec!
This 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 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. 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.
Rear Track Bar Drop Bracket: Drops the factory rear track bar to be as flat as possible at the center of travel ensuring minimal “yaw” – side to side wag of rear suspension during the suspension cycle.
Rear Extended Sway Bar End Links: Accommodates the dropped geometry of the rear end.
Airbag Spacer: Ensures proper airbag position for lifted height.
Extended Rear Sensor Link: Full Metal (steel ends, aluminum body) Links to set the ride height.
Rear Bump Stop Drop Brackets: The bump stop drops work with the airbag spacer to ensure the bag is protected in its new position.
