My carli suspension review

So I will try to keep this short and sweet I have had this lift on my truck about a week or two now what can I say it's unbelievable it rides smooth looks nice and overall just a nice kit that being said here's some things I would and will be changing the track bar has to be taken off to be adjusted that's just a but load of work unlike icon which can adjust while on the truck and idk carli why but y'all retained the factory style steering stabilizer which from what I'm told it pressured to 200psi for a 40inch tire me running only a 35inch it pushes to the left also it's not nitto trail grappler friendly as y'all said that tire likes.to go left and I refuse to run any other tire I think y'all would benefit from selling this kit with the Bare minimum bilstien duel stabilizers and if I buy another kit from y'all which I will when u make a 6inch it would only be with king duel stabilizers up front all and all tho it's an excellent kit and well worth the $$$

Glad to here that you are happy with your Carli system. Here are the answers to a few of your questions:

There shouldn't really be a reason to adjust the track bar after it is installed unless it wasn't set correctly during the initial install. After it is set once it shouldn't need to be adjusted after that. Carli builds there stuff to be as strong as possible and by adding a more complicated adjuster opens up hte chance for failure.

As far as the stabilizer goes it works great for 95% of the tires on the market with the Nitto Trail Grappler being the biggest culprit when it comes to left pull. I run the same stabilizer on my 08 F350 and with the pressure decreased to 120 the truck drives straight with my 37" Hankooks. With something like Toyo MT's it would be best to run the stab at full pressure.

Carli is working on a low mount stabilizer setup that pushes to the rigth to combat the left pull of the few tires on the market that pull left. It will also be great for guys who want to run an upper and lower stabilizer.

In addition to what George stated above, King only make emulsion style stabilizers. These shocks will only half-submerge the piston with oil and thus will just cavitate not dampen. We love King shocks here but there's a reason we only use bilstein for our stabilizers. As george said, we're going to be developing a lower stabilizer to push toward the passanger side to correct the laeft pull of the tires!

Overall, glad to hear you're stoked on the kit!
