Here is my ride 2011 350. Bone stock right now. But its getting time for new tires, i want to go bigger, so i will need a leveling kit, and might as well do new shocks while im at it. Also the firestone ride rite kit to keep the *** up and level with the trailer on it. do i need an adjustable track bar or a relocation mount for the stock one or can i leave it alone for the 1/4" it will be off center? Do i need caster shims? Do i need sway bar extensions? Do i need brake line brackets? Again this is a 90% on road truck so i don't need anything extreme. Im trying to keep costs down but do it right.
I really appreciate any help.
See my signature.
I have a leveling kit, firestone ride rite, etc.
I paid just over $1700 shipped for my carli leveling kit, here's what it included. Seems to be everything you want and need. These are $60k, trucks, why skimp when it comes to suspension, driving etc?
I have the Carli Starter system on my F250...
5100's all around
2.5" lift progressive springs in front, 10x more heavy duty than the wimpy stockers
Brake line relocation tabs
Adjustable track bar
Correct Caster Shims
Add-a-pack leaf springs in the rear as opposed to the block. I hooked up my 15k pound 5th wheel up after adding in the leaf springs, and it definitely sagged a lot less than stock. And that was with my airbags almost empty. I had like 15psi (max is 100psi) in and it barely sagged, if any at all. However, since you have a 350, you would need a 250 block. In this case, it may be better for you to just keep the stock 350 block and leave the rear.
When you add in the adjustable track bar to the icon stage 1, the cost is almost identical to the carli. The difference? Carli comes with a progressive leaf-spring add a pack as opposed to just swapping blocks out..
I haven't installed the track bar, but plan to in the next few weeks. Even without the new track bar the truck rides awesome and looks amazing. I would do it once and do it the right way, then never have to worry or change anything again.
I could not be happier with my kit. I haven't installed the
