carli coilover

Who is running this lift? How does it ride? Is it easy to adjust the lift height? Will it fit 37x13.50 r20? I have the bmf 20x9 novakanes on mt truck now, I want to get the lift but I dont want rubbing issues. Just need some more info on the lift from the consumer stand point before I pull the trigger. I really didnt want to spend this much money, but I am keeping the truck for awhile and why not settle for nothing but the best. Thanks

I'll let customers chime in as to the ride and who's running it but yes, it's easy to adjust the height but we do not recommend doing it as the height is set and the components in the kit are all built around a 4.5" lift height. It will fit the 37" tire so long as your wheel is no more than 9" wide with 5-5.5" of backspacing.

You may get better response posting this in the suspension section! Good luck with your build!

We currently do not have plans to build a 6" as our 4.5" is more like a 5" in all actuality. It allows for the same tire fitment as a 6" but the 6" becomes much more involved. Adjusting the coilover to 6" will basically max out your steering linkage and heim on the track bar. We do not recommend it and you'll lose 1.5" of down travel as well.

No problem, as stated in my second post "It will fit the 37" tire so long as your wheel is no more than 9" wide with 5-5.5" of backspacing."

Thanks again oc now to choose the coilover or pintop. Which one rides better more on the highway vs offroad?

They ride identical. The only reason to get the coilover over the pintop would be for the height adjustability or to run bypass shocks with it. Otherwise, you can get a pintop system with stainless steel shafts and full leaf springs for less than the price you'd pay for a coilover that has standard shafts and add-a-packs. Plus, the pintop will ride much better and be more reliable in the above configuration.

Those BMF's have a 5" backspace so with those tires you will clear the body but you will need to pull the plastic inner liner back an inch which is super easy. You will also touch the outer bumper bracket in the front which you can either trim,remove, or space the bumper forward about .25-.5".

I would suggest the full leaf option for the rear to center the axle in the wheel well in addition to the superior ride and elimination of the lift blocks.
