    Just starting out, give me time
    There is no real great way to leave the overload in with this aal. You cut off brackets then use center pin with new aal.

    I'm about to order my stage 1 lift kit preassembled by wheelers. I'm going to run a BAMF hybrid bumper, the weight would approximately be around 125-130lbs. Would it be advise to go with the second clip or third? I'm not running a winch, just a led bar and some pods.

    Personally I'd keep it on the 2nd clip. If you are only gonna put 125-130lbs up front that should be fine. Even if you added a winch I'd still keep it on the 2nd clip. Also, the springs are 720lbs so plenty of support.

    Did you need anything else? Im looking to order the stage 1 and the icon aal, just want to check if i should include anything else.

    Did you have it pre assembled? Im taking mine to a shop to be done so I figured they could assemble it.

    mines didn't come pre assembled, the only thing needed was the strut mount which wherever shop you take it to will reuse the ones you have on the truck. other than that your good to go

    Did anyone that installed the ICON 1.5" AAL in the rear with this kit add extended brake lines? Going to start install of AAL and Eibach kit this weekend and didnt order extended brake lines.

    Definitely not needed. I dont have the ICON AAL but have a 2" Wulf AAL and the extended lines were not needed

    If my stock leaf's are already pointing downward should I even bother installing the AAL or go for the full leaf pack? I finally got my 1.5 Icon AAL in the mail and went to examine the truck before install and noticed the stock pack was sagging downward.

    My shocks are assembled at the 2nd notch (but not installed yet) so I'd need it to at least gain enough height in the back to level it.

    150-200lbs in the back, steel sliders, aluminum skids, diamondback on the bed.

    Probably should have gotten a 2" but if they're seriously flattened then you need a pack.

    Is anyone here using stock coils on the Eibach front struts? I skimmed the thread and then read the last 10 pages without seeing anyone posting up, although I did see a few questions from others about using stock coils.

    I have been planning to use 5100s on stock coils to do a 1.1" front lift but they are out of stock everywhere.

    I ended up ordering the Eibach struts since the second clip with stock coils should yield about 1" of lift (so close enough to the 1.1" on the 3rd clip of the Bilsteins).

    I also intend to use Eibach shocks in the rear, with a 1/2" block to give me just a tad bit of rake.

    For those of you using stock coils, what clip setting did you go with, and what lift did that actually yield?

    EDIT for future searchers, here's the answer: https://www.tacomaworld.com/threads/eibach-pro-lift-kit.545060/page-257#post-26027447

    Pretty sure the springs do the lifting.

    The struts are similar to 5100s with 3 adjustable perch positions, I just don't know how much they actually give with stock coils. Their chart shows 0" lift at clip 1, approx 1" at clip 2, approx 2" at clip 3. "Approx" is pretty vague though....

    Most guys on here are using those struts at clip 1 or 2 with the Eibach coils.

    Well stock coils are rated at what, 520? Eibachs are something like 620lb, so just based off that without taking perches into account you'll obviously lose avg lift. This is all a guessing game until you have everything installed but with only a half inch block, I guess with stock coils on the 2nd notch you might be level?

    All this to say....even if just for show, why go with such a random part combo on your vehicle after already purchasing the struts & blocks, just add the eibach springs and call it a day? I'm just weighing out the risk to reward here.

    Somewhere I did see someone asking the same question on here...

    700 +/- stock and 720+/- Eibach

    I've done the research... I was hoping to hear from someone with actual knowledge of the product in use

    And I don't want a 2" lift which seems to be the least you can get with Eibach coils and clip position 1...

    You're right on the coils but I think 1st is 1.5, second is 2.25 and third is 2.75. I got about 2.25 with a full bumper. Second clip.
