Do front coils settle over time?

    Just installed Toyotec/Eibach Lift Coils and 5100's (set at 0). Got a little more lift than Toyotec specs:

    892-620 Replaced by 112-620; same spring except now has Toytec's name on it.
    Eibach front coil spring kit (set of 2) for:
    95-04 Tacoma = 3" lift
    96-02 4Runner 3" lift
    05-10 Tacoma 03-10 4Runner and FJ 1.6" lift

    I got about 2" front left and 2 1/2" front right. Truck sits level on the drivers side, has a slight
    rake (front up) on passenger side.

    Will these settle or relax any over time?

    p.s. The ride is great, a little bumpity on small road cracks but overall great feel and recovery.
    I did a test drive and launched over a few road humps, front did good, rear bottomed out though.

    Thanks for the input, I knew rear springs settled, wasn't so sure about fronts.

    Running board, K&N air filter, Nitto Terra Grapplers G2 on ProComp 7089(285/70/17), 3" front lift and 1.5" AAl rear, all with bilstein 5100's with Eibach spring, 1/2 spacer in driver side and 1/4 spacer on the passenger, Wicked Flow exhaust, Debadge, satoshi raptor grille (HomerTaco)
    Just installed mine 2 weeks ago with the same setting and is not settling down much. I got about 1 5/8 inch from both side from the stock measurements. Left side is about less than 1/4 inch lower than the right side because I have a 1/4" spacer installed. I have a 4x4 and double cab so, this maybe why I only gain about 1 1/2 inch.
