Potholes disappear, you find yourself building speed on corners and washboard, and that's just when you are on the way to work.

The entire engineering philosophy behind Carli Suspension aims to offer the real world Dodge Ram a suspension system that drastically increases the street drive of the vehicle while offering incredible off-road characteristics. So far, Sage Carli's suspension systems are the only option available where you don't have to compromise.
Carli Suspension products are designed to meet the expectations of both the daily street driver and the most extreme avid off road enthusiast. From the urban streets to the most remote places, Carli Suspension products will far exceed all your expectations.
Stock production trucks are built mainly to keep costs down. From a truck enthusiast's point of view these standards simply are not acceptable. From people looking to get a better ride with a more aggressive stance to people looking to get some serious off road performance, Carli Suspension understands the needs of these enthusiasts. This is epitomized by the ever growing list of satisfied customers. Carli Suspension’s relentless pursuit of producing the best performing suspension systems is something that can be felt every time a customer drives their truck. Carli wouldn’t have it any other way.
Here at Power Products we only want to sell the best and let’s face it, the stock Dodge and Ford suspension needs help. Your stock suspension system is designed to be adequate and nothing more. Carli suspension not only makes the ride of your Dodge better, it makes it safer. Whether you are towing a trailer on the interstate or doing a little off-road adventure, we will attest that you'll be more than satisfied by upgrading to Carli.
We get questions on a daily basis from customers looking to upfit their truck with a Carli Suspension Kit, but not sure which system is right for them. And we can't blame anyone, as their kits are structured differently than the majority of suspension manufacturers. While other companies have varying kits that simply differ in amount of lift height, for the most part, Carli only has two lift sizes for each application. However, there are multiple kits within each lift size that are determined based upon use of the truck.
To better help you understand, we have put together this guide that will hopefully provide some insight as to what kit is right for you and your truck. As kits move further down the list, the more off-road oriented they are, so even though there are multiple kits within each category, they definitely do not perform the same both on or offroad. Further, due to the structure in which Carli has kit their systems (with exception to a few), they are typically very easily upgradeable. So, if you start out with a Starter Kit due to either budget or current use of the truck, you can easily upgrade it to a Pintop 2.5 down the road. In many instances, the only thing you'll need to change are the shocks, and sometimes the rear springs.
Entry level suspension systems designed for those that keep it on the tarmac. Street Systems boast an aggressive stance while providing the user with more travel and control than the stock platform. Unlike mass-produced lift-kits, the above is accomplished without sacrificing ride quality or drivability as typically associated with lifting a vehicle. The Street Systems are fully upgradeable to the “Recreational” and “Off-Road Systems” without the need to purchase an entirely new suspension system.
Commuter 2.0 Kit
Dubbed the “Jack of all Trades” systems; these suspensions are designed for those that consider their truck to be a tool. Carli Signature Shock Tuning pairs with industry leading components to provide users with more predictable suspension response while increasing in-cabin comfort. Systems in the Recreational category are a very balanced increase of both on-road and off-road performance.
