    It is a basic lift. With the weight of the new bumper I would go with a little heavier spring rate. Toytec may be able to do that on this lift kit?? They are very helpful, call them.

    I just got a pair of the adjustable front shocks, but haven't put them on yet. I'm stock weight in the front so I just plan on using my stock springs. I ended up going with Eibach over Bilstein 5100's because (although technically a digressive shock) Eibach tunes them to act like a progressive shock at the beginning of the stroke by using a bleeder valve (or something along those lines). Therefore it won't feel as stiff on road when hitting little bumps like the 5100's are famous for.

    I'll let you know what I think when they get put on.

    Just ordered a set today found two of the last sets, Eiback is couple weeks out waiting on rear spring paint.
    Having the ARB Summit installed on my 2018 TRD OR with a winch. Verified the front coil rate is 660lb, the tech said to use the middle setting on the preload to compensate for the weight, but the kit was designed to handle steel bumpers, tire swing, etc.

    Look on the other forum, some have been running this kit for up to three years and looks like everybody likes the ride and most did not have the weight of steel bumpers.

    My kit came today and all can say is wow! Never seen shocks made this heavy before, springs look beefy and have a nice powder coating. Can wait to get these and the bumper and winch installed. Everything is silver.

    Got these installed, set front on second groove so it's a little taller up front but after the ARB Summit bumper and winch install it should set about right.

    Thanks Drew for the heads up!

    The Eiback kit working out great doesn't nose dive as much no noticed body roll, take the rough road well gives the feeling your more in control without beating you up!

    Used the full kit, the front is set at the second rung from bottom because of the bumper and winch seems like it was just right for my needs.

    Great stance with your Eibach lift. Question...
    Do you have KDSS (if so, is there any noticeable lean) and are you happy with the ride on highways and at speed?

    No KDS that picture is second setting before bumper and wench.

    Love the ride on and off road unlike a lot here I live in the country on a dirt road and past my house it’s washed out two foot deep or so.
