    Looks great with the tire size IMO. Keep the tires till you run them down.

    Installing the rear, replacing with the ICON RXT Multi Rate (whole pack not the AAL)...

    Noticed my 2018 has shims pre-installed. They are rusted to the OEM leaf pack. Now I'm worried I should have some shims to go with this new pack. Anyone run into this issue and - not - use the shims?

    I guess I'll have to install, see if there's vibe, then order new shims.

    Thanks! That’s my plan. I think this size will work well for my applications. Once I go through these I’ll upgrade wheels and go slightly bigger tires, but It’ll be a while.

    So I've put 1000kms on my truck since the lift. First notch and 1" rear block.

    Noticing my front tires are wearing oddly on the outer edge. Kind of feathering.

    Taking it in Friday for my 1000kms retorquing and going to show them. Truck now has 3800kms, KO2 275 70 17.

    Alignment issue?

    Should, depends on the year looks like. I checked '20-'21 wasn't listed though when I checked RockAuto.


    Did you get an alignment after putting in the lift? If not, you should have. You will need an alignment.

    I just used the KYB on my 2018 with these. I believe they should work with your 21, sometimes these guys just don't update their specs.

    Icon RXT Multi Pack on Option #2 + Eibach Strut in the rear. Fullish tank, about 150lbs in rear + diamondback and RCI sliders.

    Front is not yet installed as I'm waiting for the lean spacer in the mail. Will be 2nd notch. Hopefully will still have rake, don't wanna regret 2nd notch vs 1st.

    My rear was fuckered - could get maybe one had vertical between the tire and fender, now I can stack two hands on top.

    My buddy and I installed the eibach lift today on my truck and with the sway bar relocate kit installed the sway bar is hitting the crossmembers right above the skid plate. I have the trd skid plate. It’s creating a terrible noise with every bump. Anyone else have this problem?

    I believe some have actually removed the sway bar and some have not used the relocation kit. Also, I think some have used spacers for the skid plate.

    First post after probably reading through this entire thread...lol :crazy:

    Here it is... Eibach kit installed on 1st notch. Icon AAL in rear, overload removed. Did the CB drop, ECGS bushing, and Diff drop -from @Wheeler's Off-Road Inc . Awesome service as described by many before. Wheels are Rocktrix RT107 wrapped in 265/70/r17 Wildpeak AT3W

    I’ve now had the Eibach kit on my truck for just over 14 months and, overall, I’m still very happy with it. Dollar for dollar, it’s a lot of “juice for the squeeze!” D0025DAF-CA13-4C64-8C7E-4AEA5EA9A4D1.jpg

    Quoting myself, to answer myself, in case future you needs the info:

    Front:

    Stock coils
    Pro-Truck struts at middle clip position

    Rear:

    Pro-Truck shocks
    1/2 block on bottom of leaf pack

    All parts sourced from @HeadStrong Off-Road with good service, quick shipping

    Result:

    Just over 1" of front lift and just under 1/2" rear lift. Pretty level.

    TSS works fine.

    Aligned fine.

    Ride is improved; more firm, less body roll, less front dive under braking.

    After (with 1" larger 265/75 16 SL Falken Wildpeak AT3 tires):
