    3749C6F1-CB57-44F4-8777-7561FD6AE49D.jpg Eibach 2.0 Coilovers going in. This pic is height they showed up in. Rear coils going in too +1”. I’m guessing rear shocks that were supposed to show up are on back order. Coils going in anyway. waiting to hear back from customer service at Stage 3 Motorsport

    I'm in the same boat, received fronts but no rears yet. Installed the fronts last weekend. I've got a 21 TRDORP, only added weight is a pair of RCI sliders. I had a significant amount of rake, about 2.5" difference. Installing the Eibachs set the way they come raised my front end over 3.5 inches. To get to level with half tank of gas, I've gone down 6 turns on each side. Started at 1.2" of thread showing and now I have about 3/4" below the ring. The ride is very close to stock. I do notice the front handles speed bumps better than stockers and much better than the stock rears now. Be nice if Eibach would ship my rears, or at least answer an email and let me know the status.

    Same thing here. I actually raised a couple turns before I put front tires on thinking it would be easier to lower after the fact. Wrong!
    It was way high but I drove a few miles just to see if it settles at all. It did barely. So I removed front tires and dialed waaaay down. I used the 2:1 ratio on figuring the set height. Couldn’t get enough room with tires on and I did have the front end off the ground.
    I was measuring bottom of coil ass. to the top of black body with a machinist ruler. Fine threads to hard on these eyes. So I’m about 2” in front and I’ll put a few miles on before I remeasure and adjust if necessary and get alignment done.
    Ride is nice, softer than I thought it would be. Which is fine. I have rear 1” coils in and feels slightly firmer. Length of coil barely longer than stock. I’ll refrain from flexing rear until shocks installed, 1FCDE51B-D3F2-4228-BF1F-721FCA732BE6.jpg sent out another email to customer service from Stage3. No response yet. It would be nice if advertised these were on back order.
    As far as install I took apart top ball joint vs. bottom as I’ve seen on other videos. Pretty easy job. Rear coils real easy. Coming from the Jeep world Eibach not popular so I kinda rolled the dice but happy

    First pic is after install. Second is after lowered down to about 2” and have a bit of rake. Will probably adjust later.6B2F60D1-5990-4518-92EC-0BEDD05B31A0.jpg 0E981CA9-AB88-4B6F-9A1B-8D408871FCD7.jpg

    Here’s my side view. I’m about 1/4” higher in front. Waiting to see if I get any settling.

    I've got ~8k miles on mine with zero settling. Not sure why as everyone says they are supposed to settle

    I think some people put on a lift and then take a height measurement before driving it around.......getting an artificially high lift measurement.

    Others have coils from different manufactures that do actually settle a bit within the first few months.

    Eibach says their coils don't settle.
