Carli's new 2003-2013 Dodge Ram 2500/2003-2012 3500 4x4 adjustable track bar is a must for any Dodge 2500/3500 4x4 suffering from wandering steering or with an aftermarket lift. The track bar will center the axle side to side and ensure proper suspension geometry. The track bar will also give a tighter feel to the front end by eliminating the O.E.M rubber bushings. Included with each track bar are all required spacers, crush sleeves, and shims to fit each specific vehicle's stock hardware. On one end is a custom F.K. Heim Joint that offers articulation and rigidity with an improved service life over other styles of bushing. On the opposite end is an heavy duty captured uniball bearing for maximum strength and life-span. A laser-cut gusset surrounds the uniball welded cup to ensure that this track bar will be the last you ever buy.
-Constructed from 1.50" x .375" wall Chromoly tube
-CNC bent for perfect fitment
-Fixture-welded in house
-Pre-loaded captured bushing
-Captured 7/8" FK Uniball on frame side and heim joint on the axle side
-Includes misalignment spacers
-Includes sleeves for both 14MM and 16MM applications
Fits 1994-2013 Dodge Ram 2500 4x4 and 1994-2012 Dodge Ram 3500 4x4 trucks. Fitment on 1994-2002 trucks is possible with a 3rd Party conversion bracket, but we cannot guarantee fit or clearance.
This part is beefy and easy to install. I did find that, even with the provided bushing, I had to drill out my frame holes and go with a bigger bolt. Awesome company, great parts, and extremely fast shipping.
awesome 5star service..awesomes guys and built quality parts.. thank your for your time and business
CARLI SUSPENSION 03-13 Carli Dodge Ram Adjustable Track Bar
Track bar was a much needed step in tightening the feel of the steering and front axle functions of the truck. Made the truck feel better than new.
The carli suspension track bar came in a nice box protected very nicely. Once I got this installed it was crazy how much the play in the steering had gone away. 5 stars for sure.

-Stainless Steel Low Mount Stabilizer (Y-style includes a required Clamp to adapt the stabilizer to steering arms)
-Extreme Duty Ball Joints

Happy with everything
My products came quicker than I thought that they would and in great shape. I’d definitely use CJC again in the future.
CJC has made not only this purchase easy, but their research and passion for quality set me over my usual reserved perception of aftermarket accessories. I ordered multiple parts from different competitors just so I know who to choose and don’t waste your time elsewhere. I should’ve went with them entirely!
Ordered a Carli track bar for the second time after loving it on my personal truck and recommending it to a customer. The hardware was missing on arrival, however, CJC customer service was incredibly prompt in shipping that out to me. Quite happy!
Love it bumbs don't effect steering wheel anymore. Have a four inch lift with Nitto 37".
Used APEX ball joints and tie rod and ends. Used the Carli Track bar.
My truck drives like its on rails. Dude that did the front end alignment said thats the best driving Super Duty he has worked on.
This track bar replaces the factory unit with a significantly stiffer bar to reduce steering wander, and end death wobble from worn track bar joints. Made here in the USA, this is the highest quality track bar available for 05-16 Ford trucks!
Carli designed their Adjustable Track Bar with a machined tapered rod end with a custom angle offset to increase ball joint life. This design puts less stress on the ball joint at full droop and keeps the ball joint pin vertical at ride height, prolonging the life of wear items. A big 7/8″ heim joint is used on the frame side and it comes with custom machined misalignment spacers. Constructed out of heavy wall mild-steel tube.
– Custom Machined Spacers for Maximum Articulation and Perfect Fitment
– Offset, Machined Tapered Rod End Re-aligns Axle Ball Joint For Lifted Applications
– Huge Strength Upgrade: Constructed from 1.50 x 3/8″ Wall Tube
– FK Race Heim Frame Connection
– Fitment: 2005-2016 F250/350 4×4 – 2.5″ and 4.5″ Lift
– Will NOT work on Stock Trucks or in Drop Brackets
I ordered the trackbar for my 2005 Ford F-250 and the product and service from Carli and CJC Offroad were top notch. I couldn't ask for a more professional product and team to back them up. Great Job guys!!!
Carli Suspension 05-16 Ford Super Duty Adjustable Track Bar
Looks great, very solid especially compared to the stock bar.
Being fine-tuned over the last 5 years, Thuren Fabrication's track bar makes a huge difference in steering and suspension feel. Add a lift, bigger tires, or some performance suspension components, and it becomes one of the best handling improvements you can make. Feedback through the wheel becomes almost nonexistent, and overall suspension and steering performance and safety is improved.
Each bend is precisely placed and designed to reduce flex, which is one of the biggest factors contributing to bad performance from other units. Thuren uses DOM tubing for its resilient qualities(unlike Chromoly), being that some flex IS going to happen, with such a heavy vehicle weight. Contrary to what you may think, any defection in the trackbar bushings reduces ride quality and safety, along with ADDING to road feedback.
Being the first track bar to market for the 3rd gen Rams, specifically designed to combat Death Wobble and improve handling and safety, you know you will get the best possible product. While Death Wobble can be a tough situation to combat, as the trackbar alone is not the only source, it is usually the first place to start.
2003-2007.5 trucks will use a 14mm bolts, while 2008-2013 trucks will use a 16mm bolt.
-Made from 1.5" OD .25" wall 1026 DOM
-Heavy duty FK ROD ENDS 7/8" shank chromoly heim at axle
-NEW special hard 75D Durometer bushing, with stainless sleeve
-Provides much improved steering feel
-Improved suspension feel
-Easy bolt in replacement
BE SURE TO READ THE IMPORTANT UPGRADE NOTES BELOW IF YOU HAVE A 2005-2008 MODEL YEAR TRUCK!!!
2005 to approximately 2007.5 trucks used 14mm bolts(18mm socket head) on both ends. Around the middle of 2007 some trucks were coming with a 14mm bolt on one side, and a 16mm(21mm head) bolt on the other. If you have a 2007-2008 truck and you are unsure if you have mismatched hardware, you should purchase the above option with hardware(we send OEM nuts and bolts from the Ram dealer with this option) and plan to possibly drill out the mounting flange(s) to a 5/8"(16mm) hole. If you have a 2003-2007 truck, this is a good option also which will let you upgrade to the better hardware by drilling out the mounting flanges.
- First place to start if your vehicle has ANY strange handling traits.
- Made from 1.50"x3/8" wall 1026 DOM tube.
- Delrin machined frame side bushing.
- CNC machined form-threaded heim joint tube end.
- Bead blast textured, then highest quality Powdercoated.
- Adjustable length
- Grease fitting for frame bushing.
- Extreme duty FK Teflon lined rod end at axle side.
- DOES NOT FUNCTION WITH LARGER AFTERMARKET DIFF COVERS!!!!!
Our trackbar is designed to be VERY rigid, and often people will think that having a rigid track bar will give steering vibration and rattle. Regarding the track bar, this not true, being that the trackbar is the only steering support. If the support(trackbar) deflects, the truck will be allowed to basically steer itself as you encounter bumps/ruts/holes/etc. A rigid trackbar is the only way to be sure that inputs you make to the steering wheel, will actually get TO the wheels.
Thuren Dodge Ram 2500/3500 2003-2012 Adjustable Track Bar
I have a 2012 Ram 2500 with the diesel. I bought the truck used and refreshed the front end a few components at a time. The steering and front suspension in general had been a little loose and clunky due to original components with 170k on them. I will say, this track bar by far made the biggest difference out of anything, and of the ball joints, control arms, drag link, and tie rods that I replaced, the factory unit seemed to have been the least worn out of them all. Replacing it with this beefy unit from Thuren made the biggest difference in steering stability and ride quality out of them all. I upgraded to Thuren 3" coils and Bilstein shocks as well, and this track bar compliments them very well. I haven't driven the truck on any twisty turny roads yet, but I am looking forward to it! Well worth the money. I wish I had done it sooner!
