The Dominator 3.0 is Carli's original flagship ride quality performer for 1994-2012 Dodge Ram 2500/3500 4x4 trucks. The larger displacement combined with Carli's custom low-flow piston and latest shock tune offers the smoothest dampening control and high speed bottom-out resistance. There's nothing smoother than a Carli tuned King 3.0.
In our opinion, the Dominator 3.0 offers the best all around ride quality of any suspension offerings for a Ram 2500/3500 truck. The size and displacement of the 3.0 shocks allows for tuning that almost eliminates and kind of felt choppiness while offering enough dampening to improve the truck's handling both on and off road.
Carli provides the option of whether to include the sway bar end links or torsion sway bar as well as rear progressive add a packs or full progressive leaf springs with this system. For 2003-2009 trucks especially, the replacement sway bar end links are highly recommended as 2"+ of front lift tends to overextend the factory sway bar end links. The progressive add a packs are designed to retain factory weight capacity while softening the rear of the truck as the rear suspension compresses. The full progressive leaf springs replace the entire factory leaf spring pack and are designed to retain about 85% percent of the factory weight capacity. In terms of ride quality, the full progressive leaf springs offer one of the most significant improvements in ride quality available for these trucks.
**2010-present vehicles have 2 possible sizes of Sway Bar End Links. Place a socket on the nut that compresses the rubber End Link bushings; fitment of an 18mm socket will indicate the need for the 12mm part number.

This system will fit up to a 35” tire with stock control arms (we recommend purchasing our extended, Mild Steel Control Arms) on wheels with 5.75-6” of backspacing. If running factory wheels, we recommend an All Terrain 35” tire to avoid rubbing. For 37” tire fitment, Carli's High-Clearance Control Arms and Adjustable Track Bar can be paired to a wheel with 5.75” of Backspacing. The more rubber, the better the small bump compliance will be at proper inflation pressures. The ride will firm up as you go larger in wheel diameter.
