Anyone install the new Eibach 1.6" lift springs

I will be doing this next week and kind of wondering how much it does lift the front.
I will be using 5100's so I can go up a bit perhaps the .85 to match the 2" AAL that is going in the rear first.

I had a set installed last week. I have them set on the .85" setting and it gives a bit over 2". Matches up great with the 1.5" AAL that went in at the same time.

lift

I got the 5100's and the eibach coils. I have not installed them yet and am trying to decide on the stock setting or the .85. Let me know how much lift you get with either you use. I only have the TSB in the rear so I am still debating.

I'm doing the same... I've decided to only go at stock setting with the 5100s and stay with the 1.6" of lift from the Eibach springs (for now).

Question, I received my Billies from downsouth positioned at the 1.75" setting... does anyone know how to move that circlip down to the stock setting so I can have this done before installation?

I plan on installing my Eibach springs in the next couple of weeks. I will be installing them on my stock shocks, so I am looking to get about 1.6 inches of lift. Anyone who has installed them post pics!

The little clips should pop out with a small screwdriver if you do not have the proper tool to spread them.
Just slip it in the open end and gently pry it up and out of the groove then work your way around untill it is all the way out and resting on the body next to the groove.
Work it down to the groove you want to put it into to lock it's position.

Toytec 1.5" AAL. I did not worry about any spacers for lean. When I measure both sides are within 1/4" of each other.

I put the eibach 1.6" ers on the 5100 bilsteins set at 0 no lift. 1/4" spacer in the driver side.
I ran out of time before I put the rears on.
More with heigth differences to come tomorrow.
Quick test drive and crap it is so much better!!!!!!
Not too stiff but not squishy like the stock set up.
Great upgrade.
