    So I currently have the Eibach pro truck lift stage one installed in my truck as well as wheelers 1.5 inch add a leaf.

    i’m thinking about returning to my stock sport suspension or picking up a TRD Pro suspension from someone on here. I run a camper shell on the bed of my truck and sleep back there with my fiancé when we go camping a few times out of the year.

    Would it be worth leaving in the 1.5 inch add a leaf when returning to stock? Or will it raise the back up too much? I’m thinking the weight of the shell will keep it looking relatively stock,
    but if anybody has any pictures of a similar set up or experience, feel free to let me know. Thanks

    I enjoy the added height of the lift, but I think I want the softer ride back that the stock suspension offers.

    I am currently waiting on my Eibach stage 1 so I can't speak from direct experience but I did have a 2.25 inch spacer up front and a 1 inch block in the back and was perfectly level. I am guessing a stock front end with a 1.5 inch add a leaf will definitely give you a higher back end. You could go measure you current heights front and back then subtract approximately 2 inches from the front to figure out what the difference will be. I removed all spacers and blocks and have a little rake so again, I would imagine even with the shell you may be a touch high.

    That makes plenty sense.
    In theory, the rear end would end up sitting 2.5 inches higher than the front (rather than the typical 1 inch taller than the front). But I’ll have to go out and take some measurements because “in theory” and “in practice” are two very different things. hahaha

    Hmm that looks really interesting I’ve never seen that before
    When you get around to it, would you mind taking a few pics of yours installed?

    The Eibach set is up for sale. I have it listed for $300 firm. It’s a bit scratched up and whatnot but they all work and function flawlessly
