Re: Carli Radius Arms

Just installed the Carli 3” front coils. Despite what the trolls have been claiming in the past, radius arms geometry changes ARE definitely necessary as there is a bowl in the coils as a result of sharply angled coil buckets. Does anyone here ACTUALLY have the Carli 3” installed? The Carli 3” is no...

Re: Carli Radius Arms

What Marcus said, makes zero sense to run their radius arms, not an upgrade. Their 3 inch coils are the same height as Thuren's FYI. Thuren's Hemi coils are 3 inches, he just lists them as 1 inch and 1 1/2 inch in the PW section. I thought he sells 1/2” lift coils and 1.5” lift coils, over a stock ...

Re: Carli Radius Arms

Sorry for the confusion gents I meant radius arms drops, to compensate for the taller-than-stock coils.

And yes I'm tracking that the 1/2" is actually about 2" lift over stock 2500.

Carli Radius Arms

Anyone here running the Carli Radius Arms for their PW? Been debating getting those and the 3" Carli front coils for my '17 PW, which current has 1/2" Thuren coils and Carli King 2.5 (used to have Thuren King 2.0). I didn't go with Thuren because of an upcoming road trip plus Carli is less than two ...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

Carlis shock bodies being longer should change nothing unless Carli also gives you bump stop drops. I couldn't imagine the shocks having more travel than the coils. The coil is not the limiting factor. Also the power wagon trackbar is the same length as the Carli/Thuren bars at max safe adjustment ...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

The 2.5's will break in and get softer. The initial miles on them will feel quite sporty, they get smoother when the valve shims polish out. Amen to that, they definitely feel stiffer than the 2.0. The King 2.0 is a noticeable upgrade from stock; softer and obsorb low and higher speed bumps a lot b...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

Installed them last night and took it on the highway. Now the truck stays leveled when going over bumps and patches of uneven pavement as if it is floating. That leveled feeling when going over those bumps was something that the King 2.0 never provided. The 2.0 merely felt like you’re on a bouncy wa...

Re: Thuren King 2.0 IFP shocks for sale

Maybe an odd question... but, you have everything else from Thuren, why not get the 2.5’s from thuren? 1) I've given this some thought; since I live less than two hours away from Carli Suspensions, it'll be convenient for me to drop off the shocks when service is due, as opposed to spending a few h...

Re: King 2.5 and 2.0 combo

All valid points gents, thank you. My curiosity was sparked by a Ford F-250 owner that was rocking a Fox 2.5 in the front and a Fox 2.0 (non-reservoir) in the rear. Looked a little funky and the owner only runs truck trails and country roads. If I talk to Don again I will lose all self-discipline an...

Nah, just considering.

Definitely agree with the previous comment about bombing through Baja. Just looking for a bit more damping when going down the truck trails and rough country roads.

King 2.5 and 2.0 combo

Hi all, I'm currently running a set of King 2.0 IFP from Thuren and was thinking about swapping out only the front shocks for a pair of King 2.5 reservoir shocks for that extra bling. Obviously I would like to get the rear shocks upgraded as well but don't want to blow all my wad at once. Does anyon...

Re: Thuren King Steering Damper for '13+ Ram 2500

Order placed! My current factory damper pushes slightly to the right, not dangerously so but definitely noticeable. I just want to get rid of the small steering jerks as well as the "oh crap" moments when I hit a big bump off road. Guess I'll have to wait and see.

Anyone have any experience (pos or neg) with the King Steering Damper while driving on highways or off-roading? I have a '17 PW and the factory damper is a little weak on rough roads and back country trails (40+ MPH). Although there isn't a pull in any direction, sometimes I still get a little jerk ...

Re: Stock 15 with 37s

Have a couple questions for ya as I've been considering upgrading the shoes for my 17' PW.

1. Did you notice any MPG drop after putting on those 37s?
2. Do those 37s rub when you lock out the steering wheel to either direction?

Thanks.

89 vs 91 Octane

Been using 89 Octane gas since I bought the '17 PW 7,000 miles ago, since it was the recommended octane per the manual. Tried 91 octane once or twice and didn't notice any improvement. What are some of your guys' experiences with running 91 octane for long periods of time?
