    There does not appear to be a lot of good info on this forum regarding these springs. I was going to go with collars, but when I saw these from Eibach I had to give them a try. I have had Eibach lower springs on numerous cars and the stance was always spot on and the ride quality as good as OEM. IMO, just like Brembo is the king of brakes and Recaro is the king of seats, Eibach is the king of springs so while there was limited feedback here, I trusted them based on my past experiences.

    As I was hoping, they are perfect! Definitely raised the raked front up and I do not loose any suspension travel as with collars. The ride quality is awesome, actually better than stock. Feels much more planted and no bounce. Eibach included recommend alignment specs which my shop did with the spring install. I have no doubt they will be equally impressive offroad and I will test that out in two weeks at Snoball. I will provide more feedback as I get more miles on them, both soft and hard alike! ;)

    You can really see the difference in the pics.

    congrats looks great. i dont understand why more dont do Eibach springs vs collars.

    my 2019 is going direct to Eibach and they are using it to make the springs specific to 2019.

    yes it should be same set up as 17 & 18 but they said be great get a 19 in there and make them just to be 100%

    so be cool i get the first set and lots of R&D just for my springs and they will align right at Eibach headquarters.

    also doing custom powder coat color depending on what colors they have on hand that day when they make my springs.

    The biggest issue when they first came out was the height an the spring rate. They made the truck sit nose high and the higher spring rate lead to many complaints about harshness in the ride. I don't know if they remedied either issue yet but that was the major down fall when they first came out.

    We actually have been selling alot of these to RAM owners and they love them. Eibach makes a great product. they know how to create a suspension product that works well on all types of vehicles. If anyone is interested we can get you set up. Message me for pricing

    I would imagine it's because collars were the 1st thing to come out and they are do what the mid-perch mod on the Gen 1s did. These Eibach springs are fairly new and very untested in the Raptor world, but once a few more guys opt for this and spread the word, they will sell plenty.

    I think the height is perfect and the ride quality is amazing. I wonder how many people that complained about them did not complete the recommended alignment specs after the install?

    If Eibach made a progressive spring I'd consider them. Geiser bro progressive springs are proven. I had a set of the Geiser springs on my gen1, they were great!

    I go back and forth on the gieser vs. Eibach and I’m seeing a lot more positive reviews on the eibach, they changed the spring rate since the first came out. I feel like an a$$ mentioning it because I can’t find the link now, they were 588 pound spring rate and I think they dropped it to 542.

    Looking forward to your Offroad report about how they compare. I’m looking at replacing front springs this summer when I replace rear springs.

    It looks like somebody already mentioned it but I guess they changed the spring rate. Alignment probably wouldn't matter when it comes down to how stiff the spring is. It is good that they got it changed. I've always liked Eibach products and was shocked by all the complaints when they came out. It's good to see they got it fixed.

    Did you change the upper control arms or just change the springs?
