eibachs sagging

whatre my options? no winch, just a elite front, see sig.

eibachs are sagging, bottom out on the fender just taking speedbumps with 32" all terrains, the stockers 31" which i put back on for that issue have no rub on speedbumps.

883s?
882s?

btw the rear is allpro expos.

i see so much debate over what coil to get, and on top of that what shocks.

this is more of a temp thing. im wanting sas but am still so much in the planning stages. but in the mean time it looks goofy, and the front sag is doing nothing but picking up the ass end making trailer towing even more difficult. i think i have a 8" drop hitch now and its still not enough. i used to tow on a bumper ball before i had an elite rear bumper, and front and had no sag with eibachs.



maybe just adjust the eibachs? how long are the "warranty?" is there one?

What spring rate are you running? I have a pair of eibachs 650lb 14in length that I swapped with some 700lbs 16in.

now, ive seen that the 883's provide no lift, or 2" of lift, or 3" of lift. which is it?

my goal is around 2, or 2.5", not a huge fan of spacers, and am tired of replacing cv's.

what shocks?

hrm, so hopefully might equal out to about an inch. i was thinking about maybe the 10mm spacer, even about disassembling the rear expos and removing one.

What is it that tears up the cv's? And how much do they cost to replace?

Sorry kind of a noob question, but I am kind of a noob.

thats going to be from too much lift and that causes the fins on the CVs to rub against eachother, which will eventually make them rip, and need new CVs.

How much is to much? At what point do they start rubbing? 2" 3"?

No one has suggested that your shocks are toast?

How many miles on them?

Because shocks don't dictate ride height.

Where did he talk about his current ride height? He talks about future springs, but not the current ride height.

All I see is that he is bottoming out easily: "eibachs are sagging, bottom out on the fender just taking speedbumps with 32" all terrains, the stockers 31" which i put back on for that issue have no rub on speedbumps."

shocks control the bound, and rebound bounce. sure they effect the bound, but at what speed, as the actual weight is left to the springs. im looking at ome, but also at a rock assault from trail gear.

just frustrating, hope others can take notice of what im seeing.

I just figured sagging meant a loss of ride height. My stock rears were sagging and I couldn't hold my dirt bike with out riding the bumps, I also lost an inch of ride height empty.

I just figured you were blaming his "sagginess" on worn shocks. Brand new springs and worn out shocks will have the same ride height as both spring with new shocks.
