Carli Suspension - Official Thread

Hello Everyone,

I posted in the intro section but this is where I'll be living so here it goes again:

I am the Sales Manager for Carli Suspension. If you have any questions for me, feel free to reach out to me direct and I will either answer you or direct you to the appropriate technical source.

I will not be selling on here, but will point you to the appropriate distributor (site sponsor). I'm more here to answer any questions about our products and help with installation/application questions.

Feel free to reach out to me via PM, email: Dan@thecarlisuspension.com, via shop line: 714.532-2798 ext. 107, or post directly in this thread as I'll be checking all forums multiple times daily.

Thanks and Happy Truckin'

DT

It's always great to see when a company gets involved in the community.

I have a 11-F350 and have recently put on your 2.5 pintop system with full rear leafs. Everything is great, but since you guys are on here answering questions I though I would ask:

At what pressure are the king shocks pressurized to? I noticed the schrader valves on them and was just wondering if I need to ever pay any attention to them? Should this pressure be checked upon installation/arrival of lift, or is it pretty much good to go, out of sight, out of mind, and never worry about it.

They are pressurized to 225 psi and as far as maintenance is concerned, once they're pressurized they're good to go. As you said, out of sight, out of mind.

I would check them every oil change and just ensue there is no visible shock oil on the shafts and if all is well, keep driving and don't worry about them. A bit of oil from assembly is normal on a brand new shock but if it's noticably weeping it could be a sign of a bad seal and they should be checked. Hope ths helps!

I have a backcountry 2.0 kit with full rear springs and I love it. Hope to get tired mounted soon.

One question what do you guys do with the lines that run along the radius arms. After the lift they are not long enough to be put back into the holders.

As the kit comes with extended brake lines, i assume you're referring to either the vaccuum lines going to the hub or the ABS lines. If the Vaccuum lines aren't long enough, you may have the brackets mixed up (passenger side bracket bolted into drivers side). When bolted into the proper location, it should all bolt up nicely with appropriate slack.

If you're referring to the ABS lines, there should be enough slack after the install but they may need a bit of coercing to get it all perfect. if you shoot some pictures i would be happy to let you know exactly what you need once I can see the exact problem!

Hope this helps...

Dan

Welcome Dan I just purchased a Carli Pintop 2.5 kit with full rear leaf and stabilizer from George at Truck Gear and so far very happy.

Nice to see you all on here to help make the product better and provide answers to questions.

Enjoy the kit! I have an 06 f250 and I'm thinking of going the same route... Let me know if you need anything!

It sounds like you are talking about ABS line. Atleast that is what it is on my 05.
I removed the connector that is attatched on the inner fender skirt down and drilled new holes lower then put it back on.


Hope it is noticable enough on a dirty truck.
