    The 1st photo of yours shows the spring model #. 14" long. The last number will be 0650S for 650# or 0700S for 700#. Should be easy to find somewhere on the internet.

    I will see who has them. I kinda had a feeling I should have just waited for the 700s to be in stock but who the F knows when that would ever be. its kinda wild how this "pandemic" has caused people to do more off road shit, buy more shit causing businesses to get slammed. But good, good for the 4x4 community

    Take them to a shop that has a wall mounted spring compressor. Don't use the Autozone ones. Scary

    @vorkuta775 Google Eibach 1400.300.0650S or 1400.300.0700S and you'll get some hits. The 1st number is length in inches, the second is inside diameter in inches and the last is spring rate. They are common. Good luck

    ADS (or maybe Headstrong, I don't remember) sort of recommended the 700# spring rate for my set-up which is roughly 200 lbs. of added front weight (bumper, winch, TRD skid). I feel it was the right decision as long as I keep the ride height no more than 2" above stock (23" hub to fender).

    This is my shit sitting pretty level. I need to address the rear height. It's roughly 1" above stock with a 3 leaf aal. 285/70/17.

    On road ride is pretty good with load range E tires. Off road at hard hits and dips is sublime.

    smack those resi mounts in right at the bend with a rubber mallet in one hand as you tighten the back bolt (have snug already) and then do the front bolt next. May help with rubbing.

    seems he has similar tastes in coils and color. I want those Yokohama tires. Looks nice.

    rake is good man, helps with braking and handling (function over form). I am also at 1” with icon leaf pack and 700# 14” coils. Truck looks good

    Worth every penny. I've used them on the truck, off the truck, on other people's trucks. The third arm clamps around the coil so it can't go flying off and they work on 2.5" shocks.
