    Looks perfect now. It’s pretty subtle. I knew my ride changed after springs, but it took a while to realize, why the truck’s quality ride was degraded for the most part on road. Once calibrated it was smooth again. I guess you have to know your truck before and after the springs.

    Any dealers/shops in Charlotte area that anyone has used to have front springs installed and the ride height calibration completed?

    Anyone do Eibachs + Deavers + SVC Bumpstop? Is it worth doing the bump stop?

    Probably depends on your use if it's worth it.

    I don't offroad much, and tow a travel trailer occasionally. I went with eibachs and Deaver +3HD, and the forged offroad bump plate, so I could use the factory bumps or put the timbrens on if need be when towing, but didn't do the SVC bump stops, as I didn't think it was worth the money for me.

    I had the SVC bumps, RPG Fox 3.0's and Deaver +3 HD on my Gen 1.

    I did NOT go with hydraulic bumps this time when I upgraded to Deaver +4 on my Gen 2. I have jumped the truck going around 70mph several times and it handled it just fine! I am just mindful of what type of situation offroad would cause the frame to get damaged.

    Do you keep static weight in the bed?

    Yes! Pro Eagle 3ton jack, the Retrax cover and the Pelican case full of tools and recovery gear.

    Even when I add more weight the springs don't sag.

    I understand that the ride height needs to be set on live valve (19-20) raptors and I understand how this affects the performance of those raptors. I also understand that a ride height calibration is not necessary for the 17-18 Gen 2's. Is there any ride height or other calibration that SHOULD be done on the earlier Gen 2's to ensure all of the electronics function correctly?

    I'm relatively new to this and looking at putting the Eibach/Deaver setup on my 2018.
