Eibach Pro-lift installed

I got the full Eibach lift springs installed on Friday. Just limited driving over the weekend and today to base opinions on, but ORCowboy was spot on! Feels better in corners for sure. Not as much body lean. Feels more planted.
I did sense a bit of the shocks topping out in my neighborhood. Could just barely feel/hear it happening. Very soft topping out. I have massive 3’ wide speed humps in my hood. Used to just smash over them with stock suspension. I assume the springs will settle a bit and be back to hitting them at 30+ mph soon!
Truck is perfectly level, front to rear, with factory tri-fold bed cover installed. Front lift was actually more like 2.25” as apposed to the claimed 2.7”.
Alignment was free, as the shop said I was still within factory spec, and could not charge me any $$ for an alignment!

What wheels are those and color finish? 👍
 
Do the rear springs help increase the load capacity? Or are they just for height?

So here is mine on the stock wheel setup front/back springs. Only thing i can say now after having some time behind the wheel is the extra preload from the the taller springs makes it a little stiff on the certain pavement types small washboard road will cause seemingly wheel hop like. But in sport mode help reduce this compared to street and baja.
How much lift did you go? Looks like it sits up really high.

It’s just 2” or so in the front and 1.5” in the back… I definitely could have pushed the envelope beyond the 37x12.5s I put on.

Helps with load as well. I have a couple hundred pounds in back and there was little change. Before I could get the back to drop an inch with a Costco run. Now it’s barely noticeable. Another thread shows a full overland setup with a ton of gear and the rear still appears to sit close to level.
 
Got a call from the shop yesterday. My front springs and 37's are being installed this morning.
Everything is installed and 37 spare is in the factory location. Looks great and seems to drive like it's stock. I will have to get pictures later this evening.
 
@ParadigmDawg do you have a build thread for your rig? I’d like a look at what you’ve done.

Which tires did you go with and are you still on stock wheels?
 
Can somebody tell me the rubber part on the bottom of the OEM springs, was transferred to the Eibach springs when installed? That’s what the instructions say, but another member commented that they are glued on the OEM springs and can’t be removed?

Thanks

The shop I used didn't mention anything. They just stated that everything went smoothly, it looks great and they couldn't make it rub.

My rear Eibach springs came with rubber isolators glued in place similar to factory. Or is there another part you’re referring too?

Well still no pictures. I just cleaned up the wheels and tires and was pulling it out on the street to get pictures and backed it into the neighbor kids car. Got a good dent in corner bumper and back of the side panel and wiped out her door, front quarter panel and Sideview mirror.

Would that show up on carfax if I have the insurance company cover it?

“you should see the other guy”

That sucks bro… and for such “small damage” will likely not be a cheap fix.

Yep, I hate to turn it into insurance but I may have to. I mean, since it will probably get stolen at some point, diminishing returns shouldn't come into play.

I like what Matt from Ozark Overland Adventures did with the damage, to his Gladiator, in the same exact spot. He stuck a huge Bandaid sticker on it...
