    First I want to say I really like this kit. High quality parts. Truck rides and looks great. Haven't been offroad yet, but I seriously doubt it disappoint.
    I hear you about the lack of instructions!
    I installed this kit last weekend without much issue. I attempted to adjust the coilovers twice. Once after I installed the first side and I bent the supplied tool (straight tool with a tapered end) Second time I tried to adjust the collar on the bench and snapped the tool. They did supply a another tool, a spanner type wrench that needs to be slightly modified to fit the holes. Haven't done that yet, but I did talk with Eibach yesterday and they said to adjust the ride height you must compress the springs to take the tension off. I have a set of compressors, so this weekend I'm gonna jack up the front, get the wheels off the ground, try to fit the spring compressors in there and see what happens.

    Good luck, let us know how it goes.

    Finally got them installed. The ride is a bit stiffer on the street but they take the bigger bumps well, feels more planted to the road on turns as well. I finished installing the front and back in under 4 hours at home so its easy to do with the right tools. Only pain in the ass is to find a competent alignment shop.

    Are they more harsh or less harsh than stock, on the small bumps and torn-up roads?

    Compared to my OF stocks, its a bit stiffer. Meaning you're not going to be bouncing all over the place after you've hit the bump.

    Judging by the cagey responses from people who installed these, I'm getting the impression they are harsh at lower speed on crappy roads and small bumps. :D

    ...They are digressives, so not surprising.

    Stiffer means you will bounce more after hitting bumps

    You're right... Here's my update after having the coils installed for a couple weeks.
    Initially after install I noticed that I could feel all the small bumps the uneven pavement. Dips and speed bumps performed much like my stock suspension but more responsive.
    Honestly, I didn't like it at first but once I dropped my tire pressure down from 37 to 33 the ride got a lot better.. and I mean A LOT BETTER.
    I don't feel all the small stuff anymore and I can take dips and speed bumps at normal speeds without issues.

    This is my front spacer.
    question: It looks to be a 1.5 inch spacer, what lift did this give to my front end? I also have a 1.5 inch block in rear which im planning to leave in with new rear shocks for now.
    I believe the coilovers are set at 2inch lift from eibach, will that combined with the 1.5 inch rear block be level? or even better, provide a SLIGHT rake?
    Thanks for the help in advance.

    Just got it yesterday lol
    Put this kit on the truck a couple of weeks ago including the rear shocks. Did wheels and tires at the same time. Love the feel, now I just need to sort the rear AAL or something also to level. Ft is slightly higher with out of box ft setting

    With a 1.5 block its going to give you a .5" of rake. Your rides going to be so much better with the coils compared to the spacer, you're going to love it. Make sure your your tires are not over inflated after install.
