    How does your truck handle jumping with the eibachs in the front vs the stock spring? How did those deavers ride w/o the chase rack weight?

    i had the rack and spares before the deavers. It sat a bit lower but everything was fine. did a long trip out west because deavers didnt arrive in time..
    i think the eibachs are great, but again, i have no experience with geisers..

    method nv's, cheif machining center caps, custom powdercoat, toyo m/t 35x12.5-17
    they rub a bit at full compression, but thats not the springs fault. the offset/backspace causes it with the wider track width.. ill get fiberglass someday.

    Yes, the Methods run a 0 offset. With less offset should not have ant rubbing, I would think.
    Your experience with this set up- would you ever consider running 37s, or too much involved to get them to fit w/ out considerable rubbing?

    Yes I'd like 37s someday, but again I'd get bigger fenders sorted out first.. I think there's a few other downfalls to 37s, like the weight, but still might do them eventually
