    why get the 1/4 inch spacer with coilovers? You can just adjust the spring perch on the driver's side up a bit to account for the lean. That's the beauty of coilovers... complete adjustability. On track cars you put all the wheels on scales and even out the weight distribution by adjusting the spring perches at each corner. For the lean I would measure both front wheel opening heights and adjust the driver's side one until they're equal.

    Pat, thanks for you write up on this system. Based on that and a conversation I had this afternoon with Tanner at Eibach I placed an order for the stage 2 coilovers and a set of Eibach rear shocks. Very helpful on the phone. Items shouild be here by Thursday.
    Thanks,
    Another Pat

    This ^^ is what Eibach recommends for dealing with the lean.

    @patdeezy thanks for the info on this kit...going to pick one up!

    What notch do you have this on the front?
    Also, Im looking to sit level and i noticed you mentioned you'd go with AAL in the rear later. Would the AAL bring the back up higher than the front?

    I don't believe there's notches. These coilovers are fully adjustable. You rotate a threaded collar with a spanner to adjust your ride height.

    @wo0oly what @PThy said. These are their fully height adjustable coilover kit, their kit w/ the notches is their Stage 1 PRO LIFT KIT, that come w/ 3 notch settings each raising the truck to a different level. Adding the AAL in the rear will lift the rear, benefit of this kit is you're able to adjust the height of the front to sit exactly level as the rear, regardless if you add AAL or a block.

    Will I need anything else with these coilovers to ensure that everything works correctly and tires wear evenly? Planning on setting these to 2" but a friend of mine said that doing this will just preload the springs and camber my wheels. He suggested that I would need different spindles and possibly UCAs? Any help on this would be great, thanks guys.

    Plenty of guys, myself included, have ran a 2” lift kit without changing UCA or spindles.

    Hell I was running the Eibach Stage 1 lifted ~2” on stock UCA AND stock spindles and I’m currently running stock spindles with upgraded UCA/LCA on the Stage 2 kit. Personally, IMO don’t think you need to change spindles unless you’re going to be a hardcore crawler... although our OEM spindles do look kinda thin :anonymous:

    As far as UCA, I ran stage 1 & 2 with stock UCA with no problem. You just need to get a good alignment after install

    patdeezy, thanks for the info man. I did a lot of research from the time I posted this and I found out that UCA will help the ride quality but not necessary. And like you mentioned the spindles shouldn't be an issue unless some serious off road. Thank you!

    Installed the Eibach Pro Truck Coil Over 2.0 Stage 2 kit this morning. In the rear I added a 1" block (edit: have since chucked the blocks, added Icon 1.5" 3 leaf AAL) with Eibach Pro Truck Sport Shocks. Tires are 255/85 R16 BFG M/T KM3s. Truck is stock other than a VF Tune. Ride is smooth and feels planted on the road. Alignment schedule for tomorrow morning.

    I'll have to report back, just finished the install a few hours ago. Hopeful to hit some trails this weekend. Did feel smooth on the highway, 70 mph.

    Are you able to adjust the height of these after they are in the truck? Or do you have to pull the coil over off to adjust?

    Haven't tried yet, so far I'm happy with the height. I'll let you know if I make changes. Per Eibach you can adjust while installed, but was told to get the weigh off the tires, so adjust while jacked up. Was told this via phone; there's no instructions available yet on the website.
