    It’s a 1/4” spacer that is placed on the top hat of the front drivers side spring. I asked about it when I bought the kit from Wheelers and they suggested it. I think it was $11. I read a bunch about this on the forum as well. Apparently the stock suspension takes into account some sort of left front end lean the truck has but aftermarket suspensions don’t. Glad I got it because I am level with it.

    Yes, a lot of guys are. Rubbing will really depend on how aggressive your offset is. For example, you will have much less chance of rubbing with a 0 offset wheel than you would with a -10 offset. Also depends how much you will be pushing the suspension. Lots of variables.

    I rub a little bit driveways and backing up.
    With a passenger it happens more often but not all the time.

    • First notch
    • Stock UCAs
    • No CMC... yet (coming soon)
    • 17x9 0 offset wheels
    • 285/70/17 duratracs

    I get that. the inside of the wheel mounting to the back of the rim give you X dimension. My question is where does 0 off set start?

    What size wheels and tires you getting? And why did you decide on the 1st notch. I am trying to decide myself. Thanks

    For the people who have ran both this Eibach stage 1 kit and Bilstein 5100s on OME springs, which would you prefer and why?
    I literally have both kits in my cart at headstrong and for the life of me can’t make a final decision because they both are good. So opinions needed from people who have ran both. Please and Thankyou.

    I have 16 inch SCS Ray10s and KO2 265/75 tires going on Saturday. I just did the first notch since I don't have a aftermarket bumper going on. Eibach recommended that if you don't have any armour up front to just run the first notch. I also have the ICON 3 leaf AAL on with the overload taken out.

    I never asked you. Some people have their different reasons.
    Some people put it on the 2nd notch and don't have an aftermarket bumper.

    It’s all the same reason though. Eibach recommends first notch if there is no added weight in front.

    You’re gonna ask everyone why they set it to first notch when it’s obvious why? Ok.
    Some people read through these types of threads to gather info, not to read the same question, by the same poster(you), that will almost guarantee yield the same answer.

    NO ADDED WEIGHT IN FRONT.

    Why you being a Dick! I am just asking another person's opinion. Some people put it on a different setting because they want to, or because they have bigger tires, or they want a higher lift. Simple as that.

    But you’re asking why on the first notch. I haven’t read one post that said they set it on the first notch because they wanted more lift. Or because they had a winch. Or because they had a steel bumper. The first notch is for no added weight in front. Simple as that. There are no variables to the first notch.
