2005-2016 Ford F-250 / F-350 SuperDuty
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.
  • Leveling Kit
  • Starter Kit
  • 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.
  • Backcountry 2.0 Kit
  • Performance 2.0 Kit
  • Pintop 2.5 Kit
  • Coilover 2.5 Kit (SuperDuty Only)

Purpose built systems which drastically increase the control and off-road capability of the Heavy Duty Truck Platforms. Tuned for the unpredictable, this level of suspension system far surpasses the expected capability of an 8,500lb truck while providing the best street ride of any of our offerings. A roll-cage is highly recommended if the user plans to attempt to find the limit of the suspension. Ancillary components are also recommended to ensure known weak spots of the truck are coerced into supporting the newfound offroad capability.
  • Dominator 3.0 Kit
  • Coilover 2.5 Bypass Kit (SuperDuty Only)
  • Unchained 3.0 Kit (SuperDuty Only)
  • Performance 2.5 Long Arm Kit (03-13 Ram Only)
  • Unchained 3.5 Long Arm Kit (03-13 Ram Only)

No thanks, I do not need the Carli coils
Yes please, I need the Carli coils [Add $315.00]
Shock Options
Carli offers many shock options, depending on the use of the vehicle. All shocks (except Bilstein 5100's) are tuned based upon Carli's specs for their kits. Bilstein 5100's are a great entry level shock that will drastically outperform factory shocks, or anything you'll find as a generic stock replacement. The Fox 2.0's are the same shock found in Carli's Commuter packages and are hard to beat for the street driven truck. Fox 2.0 Remote Reservoir shocks are an awesome step up from the IFP's, but the remote reservoirs offer additional cooling properties to ensure the shocks perform at their pinnacle no matter how long you've been abusing them. These will take a fair amount of offroad abuse, but if you're planning on hitting the trails hard, step up to one of the offerings from King. The Kings offer an unsurpassed ride and control, both on and offroad. The 2.5 Pintops are a great option for those that want a substantial increase in on and offroad ride, but are not planning on extreme offroad use, for those, look no further than the 2.5 coilovers or 3.0.

Prices include front and rear shocks.

Adjustable Track Bar
When lifting the truck, it is necessary to install an adjustable track bar. The Carli Adjustable Track Bar is built out of chromoly and features an adjustable rod end to precisely center your axle.
No Thanks
Yes Please, I want to add the Carli Adjustable Track Bar (CS-FPRB-05) [Add $345.00]
Rear Add-A-Pack
Carli has engineered what they call the Progressive Add-A-Packs that replaces the factory lower overload leaf springs to deliver a superior ride out of the rear of the truck, as well as give a small amount of lift to complement the 2.5" of front end lift. Please choose correct model year application from below.
No Thanks, I don't want the rear Add-A-Pack
Yes Please, I want the Progressive Add-A-Pack for a 2005-2007 [Add $445.00]

Yes Please, I want the Progressive Add-A-Pack for a 2011-2016 [Add $750.00]
Rear Blocks
If ordering your kit with the Carli Add-A-Packs, you must confirm your rear axle block size. Most F-250's have a 2" tall block, while F-350's have a 3-5/8" tall block. In order to obtain a level stance with the Add-A-Packs, you must have the 2" tall blocks. If you prefer to have a raked stance (nose down slightly), you can use the taller block with the Add-A-Packs. In the event you require other blocks than what you currently have, we offer them below.
No Thanks
Yes Please Add a Pair of 2" Rear Blocks [Add $154.00]
SKU: 7C3Z-5598-L + 7C3Z-5598-K
Yes Please Add a Pair of 3-5/8" Rear Blocks [Add $228.00]
SKU: 7C3Z-5598-HB + 7C3Z-5598-JB
Full Progressive Spring Pack
For owners of 2008-2016 SuperDuty's, you have the option to upgrade to Carli's Full Progressive Leaf Spring Pack. In comparison to the Add-A-Packs, the Full Pack kit eliminates the need for the rear block, which in turn drastically reduces axle wrap. Further, these support up to 15" of wheel travel, for the pinnacle of performance.
No Thanks
Yes Please Add Spring Packs for 2008-2010 Models [Add $1,450.00]
Yes Please Add Spring Packs for 2011-2016 Models [Add $1,450.00]
High-Mount Stabilizer
Carli offers their high-mount stabilizer which mounts completely out of harm's way for those concerned with rock, tree, stump, etc. damage. Focused around a nitrogen charged shock with external petcock, this stabilizer has the ability to be precisely dialed in to deliver the exact amount of pressure to perfectly match up to your truck. THIS WILL ONLY WORK ON 2008-2016 SUPERDUTY'S!
No Thanks, I don't want a High-Mount Stabilizer Shock.
Yes Please, I want the High-Mount Stabilizer (CS-FHMS-SS-08) [Add $285.00]
Front Differential Skid Plate
Keep your differential protected from rocks while adding some style to the front axle. Carli offers their complete bolt-on front differential skid plate for unsurpassed protection to your differential.
No Thanks, I don't want the skid plate
Yes Please, I want the skid plate (CS-FDGDANA) [Add $160.00]
Reservoir Mounts
Give your shock reservoirs a home with these custom reservoir mounts from Carli. Kit includes two mounts for front reservoirs. Please choose appropriately from the menu below depending on the type of shocks, as they take different mounts.
No Thanks, I do not need reservoir mounts.
Yes Please, I need reservoir mounts for King 2.5 Pintop (+CS-FRM) [Add $70.00]
Yes Please, I need reservoir mounts for King 2.5 Coilovers (+CS-SRM-K) [Add $70.00]
Extended Brake Lines
In order to avoid overstretching the factory brake lines, we highly recommend adding a set of Carli's extended brake lines. These are the same lines that would be included in a complete 2.5" Carli system. Unless you already have extended lines, this is a must to avoid potential catastrophe.
No Thanks
Yes Please, Add the Extended Brake Lines for a 2005-2007 Model Year Range (CS-FORDBBL-05) [Add $170.00]
Yes Please, Add the Extended Brake Lines for a 2008-2010 Model Year Range (CS-FORDBBL-08) [Add $170.00]
Yes Please, Add the Extended Brake Lines for a 2011-2016 Model Year Range (CS-FORDBBL-11) [Add $220.00]
Caster Correction
When lifting or leveling your truck, the front axle will have a tendency to swing backwards due to triangulation, which results in negative caster alignment. In order to correct this, we have two options for you. We offer Carli Caster Correction Shims which will deliver 2.0 degrees of caster. For those looking for some adjustability, we also offer BD's adjustable Cam Caster Adjustor Kit that allows you to adjust the amount of caster you desire. ,strong>At this time, the BD kit is ONLY available for 2005-2010 model year range SuperDuty's.
No Thanks
Yes Please Add the Carli Caster Correction Shims [Add $60.00]
Yes Please Add the BD Adjustable Cam Caster Adjustor Kit [Add $230.00]
Carrier Bearing Drop
Many SuperDuty's are equipped with a two piece rear driveshaft, versus a one piece. For trucks with a two piece driveshaft, we highly recommend adding one of carli's Carrier Bearing Drop kits in order to properly align the front and rear sections of the driveshaft to avoid any potential driveshaft vibration.
No Thanks
Yes Please Add the Carrier Bearing Drop Kit. [Add $35.00]
Coilover Conversion Plates
If you're going to be upgrading to Carli's King 2.5 Coilovers in the front, you will need to also upgrade to their Coil-Over Mounts. Please select your proper model year range from the menu below.
No Thanks, I do not need the coilover mounts.
Yes Please, I need the coilover mounts for a 2005-2007 (+CS-FORDCOM-05) [Add $675.00]
Yes Please, I need the coilover mounts for a 2008-2016 (+CS-FORDCOM-08) [Add $675.00]
Bump Stop Drops
If you are upgrading to Carli's King 2.5 Coilover or King 3.0 shock packages, you will need to also add their Bump Stop Drop kit, available below.
No Thanks
Yes Please, I need the Bump Stop Drop Kit (+CS-FBDF-2.5) [Add $40.00]
Fabricated Coil Buckets
Are you stepping up to the Dominator King 3.0 Shocks? If so, well done! But, you're also going to need a set of Carli's Fabricated Coil Buckets to get the job done, available below.
No Thanks
Yes Please, I need the Fabricated Coil Buckets for a 2005-2007 (+CS-FFCB-05) [Add $600.00]
Yes Please, I need the Fabricated Coil Buckets for a 2008-2016 (+CS-FFCB-08) [Add $600.00]
Rear Shock Mounts
Again, if you're going BIG and stepping up to the Dominator King 3.0 Shock package, you'll also need a set of Carli's Fabricated Rear Shock Mounts, simply because the factory ones cannot withstand the abuse that the 3.0's are capable of, meaning you will punch a hole through the floor of your bed if you do not upgrade.
No Thanks
Yes Please, I need rear shock mounts for a 2005-2007 (+CS-FRSM-05) [Add $200.00]
Yes Please, I need rear shock mounts for a 2008-2016 (+CS-FRSM-08) [Add $200.00]
