The Dominator is a pinnacle suspension system—boasting front Carli Signature tuned, King 3.0” remote reservoir shocks so large, we needed to engineer mounting systems front and rear for them to cycle properly and strengthen the chassis for the larger shocks.
As the old adage goes, there’s no replacement for displacement. In an effort to provide customers with the best product, we do not sell off-the-shelf King 3.0s. 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 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.
In the front, the shocks utilize a 3.0″ King with a large Pintop Bushing to secure them to the factory location.
Please note: Shocks come in Silver and Blue, pictured custom color shocks carry 10-12 Week lead time and additional cost. Inquire with your retailer for more information.
The front, lower shock mount – we provide a 1/4″, boxed replacement for the weak, factory-stamped, half-welded mount. The top index included in the side-specific mount servers to locate the shock mount off the axle’s radius arm mount.
Once the factory shock mount is removed, the Carli shock mount will be welded in place providing peace of mind and as much space as possible to cycle the 3.0″ diameter cylinders of the Dominator shocks.
Even slightly offsetting the lower shock mount, the factory brake lines that come over the top of the radius arm need to be relocated to prevent the wiper cap (blue cap on the bottom of the shock body from which the shaft extends) from contacting the factory lines. Carli provides extended Stainless Brake Lines and routing brackets to clear the brake lines from the shocks completely.
Wheel and Tire:
This system will fit up to a 37” tire when utilizing wheels that are no more than 9” wide with 5” of backspacing to clear the new rear shock path.
Carli recommends running a 17″-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. For more details, see Carli's article on wheel and tire selection and tire pressures:
