    Hey team
    So I just finished installing Eibach Suspension lift 2.75 in the front and 1inch in the back also running 275/70/17R
    BFGoodrich tires and stock TRD rims

    Is regearing needed for this set up? Or it’s fine the way it is

    By the way. I’m loving the new suspension. No nose dive, I feel more in control when driving, the suspension soaks up the terrain and the pavement and no rubbing

    Are you no longer satisfied driving in this setup? Issues with power? Lots of guys run 285/70R17 without regearing, I would say you'd be fine, unless finding a driveability issue. Also, what are the plans for the 4R? Daily driver, offroad only, weekend warrior? Those would all play a different factor into the necessity of gears.

    I wanted to go 285/75R17 but feel like this would require regearing (40 mile commute @ 70 MPH). I ended up going with the 255/80 pizza cutters and will give that a go for awhile before considering regearing.

    I’m satisfied with how it is
    I did some more research and found out that it’s not worth it for me and my plans.

    I don’t think a regear is necessary. I’m running 285/70/17 and haven’t noticed a loss of power. If you go larger then a regear would be recommended (35’s , 295’s etc armor etc)

    So you replaced the spacers & 285 tires, I take it...any photos with the new setup? I've considered that same route, but don't want E load rated tires.
