    I’m looking to get rid of my spacer and something to replace it. Originally, I was going with 5100 but after some research I came across the eibach pro truck set up. I couldn’t find any reviews or anyone running that set up. Is the eibach comparable to the 5100 or the 6112?

    I’ve been running them for a few months now. The fronts are set at 2.5” lift. Haven’t noticed any ride quality issues Over stock.

    Good to know, I really thought I would be able to have it at 3”. How do you like it ? Did you get the pro truck lift as a kit ?

    Pretty sure you can get 3” if you replace the coils. Spent about 20 minutes on the phone with a gentleman at Wheeler’s and he spoke very highly of them. Said they were a definite step up over the 5100.

    I’d look long and hard at how you use the pickup before you drop the extra money on the 6112. If money is. No object, go with whatever. I was prepared to get the sales pitch for them, but instead he told me to save myself a few hundred and go with the Pro Truck setup. Time will tell.

    Yeah they’re a great value. I had 110k kilometres on my struts so I justified it as being a ‘maintenance’ item

    How’s the ride quality compared to stock?

    Good, almost the same as stock even at the 2.5” setting. Being that the spring is compressed more, I noticed a slight “bouncy” feeling when bringing the truck to a stop.

    Im gonna go with this setup soon. I was also wondering if you need spacers to make the truck level (no lean) when using the Eibach springs.

    Both. My stock coils are mounted on the eibachs. I posted a picture above.

    More than likely the 2.5 setting
    What does "Bouncy" mean?

    You’d probably want a 1-2” shackle or spacer lift in the back to accommodate. I believe you have to do this anyway because the rear eibachs are longer than stock.

    Here’s how the front sits.
    Sorry I don’t have many pics of my truck right now

    Roger. I didn’t look that close at the photo. I wonder how different the ride would be with the Eibach coils.

    When I put this together his summer I’m going to replace all shocks, add the Eibach coils, and a 1.5” shackle in the back. Probably set the front at 2-2.5”.

    The guy at Wheelers thought this would make a great mountain setup where no one is driving like they are in a race track.

    Now, if my wife and daughters would grow about 7-8” and I could get rid of the tube steps.

    2 yrs ago a shop charged me $500 to put this spacer on my 2016 crewmax to level it, and I feel like I paid too much.

    This week I had the Eibach Pro Tuck lift system put in but I don't see hardly any change in my hight.

    I just ordered some 18X9 -12 offset with Nitto Ridge Grapplers 295/70/18 and don't know if they will fit. Can I install the Rough country spacers on top of the Eibach springs and 2" blocks in the back or will that be a bad thing.
