Carli Suspension 2.5" Leveling 2.0 System for 2017+ Ford F250/F350 Gas

Pin It

Additional Info

The Carli Suspension Leveling System was designed for F-250/F-350 owners seeking a leveled vehicle with more performance and ride quality than a generic spacer lift. The included front Carli Signature Series Shocks are longer to accommodate the extended travel.

When designing the shocks, Zinc plating, Clear Coat for corrosion resistance, and quality bushings were a must—finished off with boots to protect the shafts. Carli Suspension also backs them with a limited lifetime warranty to ensure their quality is as unbeatable as their ride quality at this price point.

The truck will sit 2.5” higher in the front and have more wheel travel thanks to the lighter rate Carli Suspension Coil Springs. Extended, 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.

We recommend adding an Adjustable Track Bar to center the front axle; for those that do not wish to, Carli Suspension includes their High-Clearance Bump Stop Drop to keep the springs clear from contacting the factory bump stop given the slight driver’s side shift of a leveled Super Duty without a track bar. 

The front sway bar geometry will need to be addressed with your choice of a Sway Bar Drop Bracket (more economical, maintains the factory Sway Bar End Links) or Carli's Extended Sway Bar links – a FAR more robust option. The replacement End Links are only compatible with a plow bracket.

The front will sit level with the rear and payload is maintained as the rear springs are unaltered in this system.

Wheel and Tire:

Factory Wheels SHOULD NOT be run with oversized tires. They’re known to rub the radius arm, sway bar and most concerning – Brake Lines. Factory tires and factory wheels will work without issue but we DO NOT recommend running oversized tires on factory wheels. On our 2.5” Ford Systems, we recommend 17”-18” wheels, no more than 9” wide with 5.5” of backspacing with Carli Fabricated Radius Arms or 5” Backspace with factory arms; 5” will require a bit more trimming.

Tires, 37×12.5” will fit with some trimming; 35” will likely fit without trimming. The more rubber, the better the small bump compliance will be at proper inflation pressures. The ride will firm up as you go larger in wheel diameter. For more details, see our article on wheel and tire selection and tire pressures:

System Notes:

Wheels: Carli Recommends a 17"-18" Wheel, no more than 9" wide with 5"-5.5" of backspacing on Leveling Systems.

Tires: 35", E-Rated Tire Fitment is Recommended. Recommended unloaded Tire Pressure 45F/40R.

Recommended Configuration: Carli Leveling Systems are Designed and Tested on Vehicles with 17"-18" Wheels with 35", E-Rated Tires. Stock wheels and tires or running a larger wheel diameter will result in a stiffer ride.

Add-A-Packs: Add-A-Pack Option Requires NO BLOCKS to achieve level stance.
