USA MADE // Carli is committed to production in the USA. Every single Carli Product is American made and sourced, down to the tape and boxes themselves.
CUSTOM TUNED // Unlike your average lift, Carli Suspension uses only custom tuned shocks. Each shock package goes through months of testing, development, tuning, and valving. The Commuter shock package has the smoothest possible ride on road, but can still handle basic, low speed off roading.
SWAY BAR UPGRADE // Eliminates the harshness caused by the stiff factory sway bar, letting your suspension do its job and move independently. This is one of the single biggest improvements you can make to your truck’s ride. To keep the factory ride, select the end link option.
RADIUS ARMS // Hand fabricated and welded in California with the highest quality joints for improved flex, these arms are a high strength control arm replacement. These arms feature a fabricated notch making it possible to clear 37’s on a wider range of wheels.

The most capable Super Duty Suspension system offered, the Dominator is capable of smashing whoops, hamming rocks, and doing things nobody in an 8,000 pound truck should be able to do. The Carli Dominator system does it all!

This system boasts Carli Signature tuned, King 3.0” Remote Reservoir shocks so large, we worked with King for several years perfecting the fitment. The Result, offset upper stem-top and lower shock mounts to squeeze these massive, 10″ travel front shocks in place. This means no cutting or welding on the factory buckets to fit the shocks in the front – BOLT IN 3.0″ shocks.

The Rear is outfitted with matching 3.0″ Kings in a Piggy-Back reservoir configuration. We provide weld-in shock mounts to offset the oversized shock body away from the frame and strengthen the upper rear mount for the impending punishment. The installation is super easy, albeit, requires cutting and welding. One thing to note here – none of the trucks on which we’ve installed these shocks have been equipped with a factory, or aftermarket, 5th wheel hitch. We’ve been told these rear shock mounts interfere and require modification to the factory 5th wheel hitch. As they’re weld-on, anyway – it shouldn’t be a problem for the fabricator to make this work but it’s worth noting!

How does it ride, you ask? As the old adage goes, there’s no replacement for displacement. The 3.0” shock has a piston surface area 45% greater than a 2.5” King and 126% larger than a factory 2.0” shock making it far more efficient in all situations. The massive surface area also ensures we can achieve amazing off-road performance while offering an on-road ride to rival the E-Venture (in plushness, can’t compete with active chassis control for stability but you get the point).

In an effort to provide customers with the best product, we designed a custom piston to determine proper base flow rates to ensure the shock works well in the heavy duty truck platform; we then tuned the shocks based on seat-of-the-pants feel. We round off ALL our King shocks with shafts machined and polished from a solid piece of 17-4 Stainless. Unlike King’s standard shafts, there is no coating to wear off, weather is far less likely to hurt them and if there is a small chip, you can round the edges with emery cloth to ensure the seal housing isn’t damaged as they’re not brittle like the stock, hardened shafts. The shocks are finished with King oil good to -55° F. Note that all King shocks are built with a plated steel body. If subjected to inclement weather for extended periods, we recommend wrapping your shocks in 3M to provide a moisture barrier that’s replaceable.

The truck will sit 5.5” higher in the front and have more wheel travel thanks to the taller, Progressive Rate Coil Springs. Radius Arm Drop Brackets reset the pivot point and keep the travel linear for the best ride while the Sway Bar Link & Drop Brackets Kit resets the sway bar engagement point. The End Link Kit is listed as an “option”, but it’s necessary to run. We plan to release a Torsion Sway Bar in the near future so the end-link options were pulled from the base kit and made selectable in anticipation of the second option. Bump Stop Drops protect the shocks from over-compressing, the Adjustable Track Bar centers the front axle and Stainless Brake Lines firm up braking and ensure there is enough line for the newfound travel. To round off the front end, we include Caster Shims to tighten the steering.

The rear can be outfitted with a replacement Full Progressive Spring Pack (reduces capacity to a “light” ¾-ton) or factory leaf-pack modifying Progressive Add-a-Pack (maintains factory payload capacity and pairs with the included Carli Fabricated 2” block). This is where the F250 and F350 are a bit different. Since 2008, the main spring packs on these two trucks is different; the F250 has a lighter rate spring pack than its 350 counterpart. The F250 Add-a-Pack equipped systems are a nice improvement over stock; the F350 with the Add-a-Pack is still very stiff in the rear as the main pack doesn’t move much unless loaded. We recommend the Full Replacement Leaf Spring packs for both trucks but especially the F350 given the super-stiff factory springs. If capacity is a concern, the Full Progressive Leaf Springs can be supplemented back to the factory capacity of a SRW F350 with the addition of our Long-Travel Airbags (Coming soon for the 2017). The Full Progressive Leaf Spring Pack will shift the axle slightly forward in the wheel well to ensure maximum tire clearance for a 37” M/T at full compression.

Please note if your truck is a 2023+ Platinum/Limited trim equipped with factory headlight angle / load scale sensors you will need these brackets to fix the sensors in place and remove the sensor linkage.

Carli Dominator F250

Carli Dominator lift is totally worth it. I put the Icon coil over 5.5” lift on my 2023 F250 diesel and can’t begin to recommend it to anyone. Very disappointing!!! Icon service was worse!!!
I changed to the Carli Dominator and can’t say enough good things about it! Rough roads are a thing of the past with this lift. Very Happy
