Carli Suspension 2.5" Pintop Leveling System, 14+ Ram 2500 Diesel (Rear Air Ride)
- 133.00 LBS
The Carli Suspension Pintop leveling system is a custom tuned 2.5" suspension system for the 2014-18 Dodge Diesel & 2019+ 2500, including 2.5" KING Shocks and all the necessary components needed to complete your installation. Designed ONLY FOR VEHICLES WITH REAR AIR RIDE.
The Carli leveling kit provides 2.5″ of front lift that delivers 50% more suspension travel than the stock Ram. Blueprinted coils paired with extended travel 2.5" King shocks increase control and maximum comfort.
Signature Shock Tuning is achieved by way of a 2.5″ King Shock, providing users with comfortable entry level off-road capability, paired with a controlled, vastly improved on-road ride.

The Details: Your truck will sit 2.5” higher in the front (cab configuration dependent) with a touch more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs.
Wheels and Tires: We recommend a 35” tire on a wheel that’s no more than 9” wide with 5.5”-6” Backspace. An 18” diameter wheel will be best to ensure optimal ride quality (more rubber = better small bump compliance) and an unloaded tire pressure of 45F/40R is recommended. The addition of a Carli Low-Mount Steering Stabilizer is recommended for any tire over factory size.
This system is designed for the customer that keeps their truck on the road with an eye for quality and appreciation for bang-for-their-buck. At the heart of this system is a 2.5” lift, Linear Rate Coil Spring paired to matched travel King 2.5" Shocks that have been custom tuned, in house, for superior ride quality and handling. The rear shocks are also included with this system and have been custom tuned to maximize the ride quality for the factory rear coil springs. As the rear springs remain unmodified, load capacity is maintained while predictability is improved. For those that aren’t looking for a massive increase in travel or big shocks but still desire a level stance and improved ride quality and handling characteristics, this is the perfect kit. The 2.5” lift height doesn’t require the front or rear geometry correction of our 3” Systems.
The front axle will be slightly pulled to the Driver’s side following installation of the lift; this can be corrected with the addition of our Adjustable Track Bar. Further, ride quality can be substantially increased with the addition of our Torsion Sway Bar.
This system will NOT be upgradeable to any of the 3″ Carli Suspension Systems. It’s designed to be a solution for customers wanting a quality system with minimal lift and part inclusion. Customers can purchase the Pintop leveling shock package for a huge boost in on-road control and off-road performance as well as ancillary components compatible with this lift height, but there isn’t compatibility between the 2.5″ leveling and 3″ lift systems.
We recommend slight eccentric bolt compensation to correct caster after the lift as there are no Radius Arm Drops. For this reason, customers may experience a slight bow in the coil spring. We did not experience a coil bow in any of our test trucks but it’s possible at the 2.5” lift height without a Radius Arm Drop Bracket.
