Height - Carli 4.5 Pintop

Does anyone know the overall height of a 6.7 with a Carli 4.5'' Pintop suspension with say 35's on 18 inch rim's?

Trying to think of a solution for getting this 4.5" on my truck but also being able to fit it in the garage during the winter.

Any suggestions, ideas or anything would be helpful.

Do not know but I've done this on my old truck:

Gone to the factory site and got the height stock. Added the lift height. Took stock tire height and subtracted it from the new tire height and divide that by 2. Add both of those numbers together and that is the lift you get theoretically.

Don't know if ford lists the total height with the factory 18s (smaller) or 20s. Guess you could compare a platinum to an lariet. Or XLT to Platinum or whatever that comes with 20s stock.



That will get you pretty close. I know on my Dodge with a leveling kit and 35s a 7ft clearing was a very tight squeeze. Some house garages aren't exactly 7ft so be careful.

Hmm... Rarely see a 4.5" on 35" tires. Sage has 37" tires so you could always subtract an inch from the height of his truck to get your height measurement.

I may be wrong but I believe that Sage is the guy who tunes the King shocks for Carli.

I'm running a pintop 2.5 4.5 inch kit on 35 tires on 18 inch rims and I don't remember the exact height but it will fit in 8 ft garage. I can try to measure it sometime in the next day or two and give you a height if that will help.

HSRider that would be really helpful man. If you wouldn't mind. My garage door opens up to 91'' so just under 8 feet.

My last resort could be just a leveling kit...but what I'm scared of is spending $3k on a Carli leveling kit but really just wanting 4.5'' Carli Pintop or Coilover.

If you're thinking you want to go bigger now, DO NOT buy the 2.5" kit. I can tell you from experience you will upgrade and it will waste a ton of cash as nothing's compatible. Ask me how I know....
