Looks great! It doesnt really look any different than the 2.25” I have mine set at. The ride is much better than with the original shocks & struts.

thanks for the report. I was hoping there were some shocks out to tame the rear bounce when it's unloaded. did you use the eibach springs up front or just the struts with factory springs an a level kit?

Stage 3 Motorsports, but I would highly suggest another source. Their customer service is terrible and I will never buy from them again! Tire Rack is a little more and their service is top notch!

Factory springs...

I'm not a frequent hauler of stuff an my off roading is limited to back roads an fields where my grand kids ride an race quads so that's probably a good package for me.

Your rig looks great! For how affordable these struts are.... I don't know why I originally started off with a leveling spacer, or why anyone else would. Truly the best bang for the buck for our trucks.

Wow your truck looks great! This is the route i'm going to go. Slight front end lift with better shocks and slightly taller tires look perfect for what i'm going to do with this truck.

well I ordered the rear shocks today. Gonna slap em on an see how much of an improvement I notice before addressing the front. For the front I have to decide if I want
-just an add on level kit
-eibach struts with stock springs an a level kit
-eibach struts and springs.
the fox adjustable kit looks nice. being able to adjust the front height would be nice but I don't think it's worth the BIG increase in cost

So many options so many decisions. It's tough.

I did the same eibachs but only raised the front .75” because I like rake and I tow so I don’t want my headlights pointed at the stars when towing at night.

Installed the rears tonight as I had to wait for the 2nd due to an error in shipping by Eibach. I also mounted the rears with the body down/shaft up in the same manner the oem socks were. Not sure if it matters.

What’s important is that ride improvement for the money spent is great! Hit a bump or undulation and the suspension flattens after the one bounce exactly how suspension should. I should be towing at (maybe above) the max towing limit in a couple weeks and I’m looking forward to the new feel.

P.S. Stage3 customer service has been rock solid for me both here on the forum and via email.

I just purchased the rear Eibach's, going to keep stock height for now.
