Product Description
More Information

This Carli Suspension CS-DSSOSK-T Opposing Steering Stabilizer kit for the Dodge Ram 3500 encompasses both the Low-Mount and High Mount Stabilizers, along with the addition of the Differential Guard and Bracket. The Differential Guard and Bracket serve the purpose of offering an alternative method for installing the low-mount stabilizer, thereby altering its corrective orientation. By attaching the stable side of the stabilizer to the Diff Guard Bracket and the clamp to the steering system, a force is applied towards the passenger side to counterbalance the push towards the driver's side caused by the High-Mount Stabilizer. This configuration represents the most effective correction approach, as it presents a fully customizable steering stabilization package that can be adjusted to a neutral setting for accurately aligned trucks. Additionally, it can be fine-tuned to address any potential radial pulling, all while affording safeguarding for the differential mechanism.

Carli Stabilizers feature their IFP (internal floating piston) technology, a superior choice compared to Emulsion shocks, which are commonly used for affordability but have limitations in performance and longevity. The body is made from 304 Stainless Steel and truly looks amazing while minimizing effects from the elements and road debris. An billet aluminum Top-Cap made from a solid piece of aluminum houses a Teflon lined 1/2 inch bearing and o-ring style Schrader valve. The opposite end of the stabilizer uses another billet aluminum rod end housing a 17-4 stainless high-misalignment pin inside a 1/2 inch bearing for bind-free performance.

Features & Benefits:

  • Improves handling - Increased steering predictability, minimized volatility and reduced driver fatigue
  • True opposing steering stabilizer setup, high and low mount
  • Higher nitrogen charge pushes to the left and right to counter-act a right or left hand tire pull (common with larger tires). Each stabilizer pushes the opposite direction, can reduce charge in one to increase push in a single direction
  • Adjustable Nitrogen Charge - Schrader valve allows customer to bleed the pre-charged stabilizer (pressurized at 200 psi for right push, or drop to 70 psi for no directional influence)
  • IFP design (Internal Floating Piston)
  • Includes all required brackets and hardware
  • 304 Stainless Steel Body with Aluminum Top-Cap
  • Billet Aluminum rod ends with 1/2 inch bearings
  • 17-4 stainless high-misalignment pin inside a 1/2 inch bearing for bind free performance
  • Adjustable Nitrogen Charge - Schrader valve allows customer to bleed the pre-charged stabilizer (pressurized at 200 psi for right push, or drop to 70 psi for no directional influence)
  • Fits Lifted or Leveled vehicles only
  • Diff guard and bracket included
  • Adjusts for any radial pull
  • Carli provides a Limited Lifetime Warranty

Jack-it Pro Tips and Advice

Aftermarket steering stabilizers are available in two main types: Emulsion and IFP (Internal Floating Piston), both of which are "gas" charged and contain oil. Emulsion shocks are cheaper than their IFP counterparts but have limitations when used in horizontally mounted applications like steering stabilizers. When mounted sideways, the oil and gas mix, leading to poor damping performance as the piston moves back and forth. Emulsion shocks are commonly found in cheaper dual steering stabilizer kits, more for aesthetics than actual performance. They have smaller pistons, a shorter lifespan, and struggle to effectively control suspension or steering, but are favored for their affordability. On the other hand, Carli Stabilizers are all IFP Shocks, ensuring optimal utilization of proprietary valving technology. IFP shocks have a second piston, called the Dividing piston, internally separating the nitrogen cavity from the oil cavity. This design allows the shock to be mounted in any orientation, even on its side as a stabilizer. The adjustable nitrogen charge pressurizes the oil cavity, keeping the piston always submerged and efficiently engaging the proprietary valving.

Additionally, the nitrogen charge pressurizing the oil cavity enhances the oil's heat tolerance while preventing cavitation or foaming. This results in superior overall performance and longevity for Carli Stabilizers compared to Emulsion shocks commonly found in cheaper alternatives. Although a steering stabilizer is not a magical solution for a wandering truck or a fix for death wobble, it plays a vital role in increasing steering predictability while reducing volatility, road noise, and driver fatigue. Its primary purpose is to stabilize the steering, providing a smoother driving experience. Stock steering stabilizers are designed for stock steering systems and tires, but their effectiveness declines over time, especially with larger aftermarket tires.

Important Notes
  • ONLY to be used with lifted or leveled suspension
  • Does NOT fit factory Power Wagon Sway Bars
  • The High Mount steering stabilizer utilizes a billet clamp to attach to the drag link. There are two types of clamp, “Y” steering and “T” steering. Please confirm you have the proper clamp prior to attempting installation as no returns will be granted on parts where installation was attempted.
  • “Y” Style: This Steering linkage came on 2003-2008 Ram 2500/3500 and can be identified by a stock, lower steering stabilizer that bolts through a hole on the tie-rod. This steering was recalled and Dodge replaced it with the 08.5+ “T” style in many cases.
  • “T” Style: This Linkage came on 2008.5+ vehicles and can be identified by a stock, lower steering stabilizer that bolts to a clamp retained to the Factory Tie-Rod by two u-bolts.
  • Stabilizers come pre-charged with 200PSI of Nitrogen. If you encounter a left-hand pull, you can remove N2 pressure by depressing the Schrader for a fraction of a second. RELEASE AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE. Drive the truck and repeat if necessary.
  • DO NOT run stabilizer with less than 70PSI
  • Only use Nitrogen to charge your stabilizer.
