    I have bilsteins set at 2.5 on stock springs. What would be the difference in ride quality if I went to eibachs and put the bilsteins at zero.

    I was assuming that too but I don't know crap about the stock springs.

    i went from 2.5" preloaded bilsteins to eibach coils (and bilsteins set at 0")... ride was far too stiff IMO. as soon as i got my elite offroad plate bumper on the front, it felt AWESOME though.

    but with no additional front weight, the eibach 650lb coils are far too heavy in my experience.

    Just did that last week, 2009 Double cab, Off road package, 2wd
    Removed stock coils, added eibachs, set billies to .85
    All I have is the Avid off road light bar, no substantial weight but my ride feels better.
    .02 if it helps
