Just Installed my Carli Starter Kit!!

Installed my Carli Starter Kit last week and wow what a difference in ride it rides like a 1500 now! It tracks strait in bumps and doesnt bang around. Best of all it still feels like a 2500 when I have a trailer on.

What all does the 'starter kit' include? Is it a leveling kit that consists of replacement front springs, and new shocks?

I am jealous, if I had some coin I'd be at Carli buyin up stuff like it was goin outta style.

You get Bilstein 5100 series shocks front and rear, new front coils, billet stainless sway bar links, and 5 leaf rear spring pack that replaces the single overload spring in the rear. I got the kit from 8Lug truck gear. It cost me $1350. Kinda pricey but well worth it! Its a 2" lift. Best riding lift I have ever rode in! Rides way smoother than stock and handles the rough stuff better than stock!

Last night I did the speed bump test leaving the gym. I hit those suckers at 10mph. My truck before would bang in the front and bang and fall and bang again in the back. Now it just soaked it up hardly felt it!! WOW I love it. Now if I can get that rattle out of under my dash I would be really happy!
