3.25″ Pintop System

3.25″ Leveling Coil Springs: Your truck will sit 3”-3.5” higher in the front (cab configuration dependent) with 50% more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. These springs are shot-peened, pre-set and powder coated to ensure optimal performance and finish longevity!

Front, Adjustable Track Bar: When lifting the front end of a straight axle truck, the front axle is pulled off-center unless the proper linkages are addressed. Three inches of front lift equates to an axle shifted toward the driver’s side ¾” and, in the radius arm equipped Rams, lightened caster and slight rearward axle shift. This system includes an Adjustable Track Bar to push the axle back toward the passenger side and provide a stronger link with less deflection for the lifted application.

Front Bump Stop Drop Brackets: Ensures proper cycling of the front suspension withe the extended travel shocks provided.

Radius Arm Drop Brackets: Ensure perfect caster alignment (no need to max adjustments), correct geometry and spring pressures ensuring no bow in your coil spring.

Choice of Torsion Sway Bar or Drop Brackets for the Factory Sway Bar: When pairing added down-travel with the taller ride height, the position of the factory, front sway bar will need to be altered as well. For this, we offer two options; Billet Sway Bar Drop Brackets or the replacement Torsion Sway Bar. The Billet Drop Blocks shift the sway bar down and forward to ensure the factory end links cycle properly throughout the entire extended travel range. Carli’s optional Torsion sway bar removes the entire factory sway bar assembly replacing it with a torsion bar supported by fabricated drop brackets and delrin bushings. Fabricated sway bar arms and dual 5/8” FK heim end links round off the package. This is the single best bang for the buck, ride-quality upgrade offered by Carli Suspension.

Shock Package: The Pintop is the Backcountry on steroids, take the description for the Backcountry and throw an exponent on it. This system is our Jack-of-all-trades system from which every Ram owner would benefit. Raising the Ram platform then adding the 2.5” diameter shocks will support the argument that these trucks should come equipped with 2.5” shocks from the factory. This system is our most popular, all around suspension system. It was tuned and rides best with 18” wheels and 37” tires. Both of the aforementioned are recommended. These shocks are specific to the air-ride platform, totally different tune and rear travel spec!

This system boasts Carli specific, blueprinted, King 2.5” shocks on all four corners. 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 around the custom pistons based on the only thing that matters to us, 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.

Rear Track Bar Drop Bracket: Drops the factory rear track bar to be as flat as possible at the center of travel ensuring minimal “yaw” – side to side wag of rear suspension during the suspension cycle.

Rear Extended Sway Bar End Links: Accommodates the dropped geometry of the rear end.

Airbag Spacer: Ensures proper airbag position for lifted height.

Extended Rear Sensor Link: Full Metal (steel ends, aluminum body) Links to set the ride height.

Rear Bump Stop Drop Brackets: The bump stop drops work with the airbag spacer to ensure the bag is protected in its new position.

 

The detailing in the Ram 2500 Air-ride write-up in the Media Section describes the air-ride specific components in about as much detail as they can be described. The link construction for the 3.25″ Systems is the same as the Leveling, just a different length. Same goes for the bump stop drops. The spacer construction is simpler on the 3.25″ system as we’re able to utilize the factory stud on the airbag to mount it to the spacer AND bolt the spacer to the axle without the two fasteners interfering.

Fun fact: Ram only uses one nut to secure the airbag to the axle on the Driver’s side – there are two studs on the bag and there’s sufficient room for a nut but neither truck on which we designed these lifts came with a nut on the front stud of the driver’s side. For good measure, we’re going to provide one.

We will be offering these systems for the DIESEL ONLY!

The air-ride Platform is amazing in its own right. For the HD truck owner who prioritizing hauling over all else, it’s the clear choice. Both lift height we developed maintain perfect functionality of the air suspension (load leveling and alt. trailer height) so the end user is only left deciding which lift height better suits their application.

The 3.25″ System offers better front and rear geometry with less yaw (lateral suspension movement) all while boasting more front suspension travel. The Leveling system offers a more budget minded solution designed to squeeze the maximum performance of which the factory geometry is capable.

Wheel and Tire: This truck is running aftermarket Raceline Wheels wrapped in 37×12.5″ Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires.

This system will fit up to a 37” tire when utilizing wheels that are no more than 9” wide with 5.75-6” of backspacing. A 12.5” wide should fit with no rubbing on the factory radius arm and only minor trimming required, while a 13.5” will require more trimming and slightly more offset to fit properly. 35” tires will fit with VERY minimal, if any trimming. We Recommend running an 18” diameter wheel for optimal ride quality (more rubber = better small bump compliance) on a 35”-37” E-rated tire running 45psi front, 40psi rear when unloaded.
