Level the front of your truck with a Carli suspension system that delivers 50% more front suspension travel than the stock Super Duty. The industries best coils paired with extended travel shocks increase control and comfort while an adjustable track bar, caster shims and brake line tabs correct the front geometry; all without breaking the bank.

FORD DIESEL LEVELING SYSTEM 2017+

The Super Duty Leveling System is designed for people seeking the best on-road ride quality on a budget. Utilizing Fox 2.0” internal reservoir shocks, Carli developed a tune that delivers all around comfort and ride quality designed for on-road, in town, highway, and towing/hauling. The Fox 2.0s boast extruded aluminum construction with a clear anodizing for corrosion resistance, are fully rebuildable and are built with hour-glass bushings in the rod-ends. Fox builds these shocks with their legendary red shock oil that flows well down to -55° F. Unlike most of Carli's suspension systems, the Leveling System was tuned with 20”, factory wheels on factory Michelin tires given many in the entry level, 2.5” lift market want the most bang for their buck and will continue to run the factory wheels and tires.

The truck will sit 2.5” higher in the front and have more wheel travel thanks to the lighter rate Carli 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, you'll receive Sway Bar Drop Brackets to recenter the sway bar in the new extended travel stroke and Caster Shims to tighten the steering. Carli recommends adding an Adjustable Track Bar to center the front axle.  However, for those that do not wish to, as part of the kit, you will receive 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 an adjustable track bar.

The front will sit level to the rear and payload is maintained as the rear springs are unaltered in this system. The rear shocks are shared with the Commuter 2.0” system as they’re tuned around a modified factory spring pack. The rear will be more controlled and planted. This system can be upgraded to a Commuter System with the addition of a rear Add-a-Pack and Adjustable Track Bar.

Wheel and Tire:
On their 2.5” Ford Systems, Carli recommends 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, 37x12.5” 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.

FORD DIESEL LEVELING SYSTEM 2005-2016

The Leveling System was designed for people seeking a leveled vehicle with more performance and ride quality than a generic spacer lift. The IFP Bilstein 5100 shocks build quality is unmatched for their price point and offer a nice boost in ride quality and carry a lifetime warranty through Bilstein.

Your truck will sit 2.5” higher in the front with 50% more suspension travel than the factory platform thanks to the taller, lighter rate coil springs. Front Bilstein 5100 shocks increase the suspension control while the brake line tabs ensure you can make the most of your newfound suspension down-travel. The axle is recentered thanks to the included Adjustable Track Bar and the Caster Shims round off the off the front end geometry while improving on the stock handling.

As this system does not include anything for the rear, factory towing and payload capacity are maintained. This is an entry level system that only requires an upgrade to one of Carli's many signature tuned shock packages and an Add-a-Pack or full progressive leaf spring pack to be converted to one of the higher-end systems.

The Leveling System will level the front of the truck to the rear on SuperDuties equipped with the factory, 3-5/8” rear block. Super Duties equipped with a 2" tall block from the factory will require the factory 3-5/8" tall Block to achieve a leveled stance. Part Number: 7C3Z-5598-HB, 7C3Z-5598-JB
