    It shouldn’t be that difficult. We’ve had plenty of raptors come in and get aligned without issue after all sorts of different front end set ups.

    Somwthing like this would be good though, and it does lock the bottom LCA better than the factory set up which is set it, tighten the nut as much as you can and hope it doesn’t move overtime.

    Should I drive it around for a few days to let them springs settle before doing the alignment?

    Similar question. Eibachs installed and alignment it great but should I wait for ride height to settle before having dealer recalibrate and is it really needed? Seems a lot of people don’t even know about it or don’t notice a difference.

    Not having experience on this platform, but many others. I would get the reset, and I would give it a brief time to settle a little.

    I got an alignment within 100 miles of finishing the install, everything seems to be wearing evenly 5k miles later.

    I just got the recalibration done, I agree with the others, it’s not a massive difference, but a difference that is worth the price to me.

    I recommend roughly 500 miles to let it all settle down before alignment.

    It really varies from truck to truck. Some folks get a harsh ride after install, other trucks don't seem to have any issues. It's really hit or miss so I recommend doing by feel. If you're happy with the way the truck is riding, let it be. If it feels like something is off, have the recalibration done.

    Eibach installed mine at their shop in Corona and said they did an alignment. I didn't feel like it was right. I had my tire shop look at it and do another adjustment. They didn't do it right but it was better. Then I took it off road and the steering wheel was off center. Looked for a true professional alignment guy and took it to him. He did a great job. But he recommended that I throw on the Camburg UCA to help with alignment (camber, caster, toe etc) He mentioned that with the springs I am losing high speed control because of how the springs changed the geometry of the UCA. I am scheduled to get the UCA installed mid November. I assume and hope that this will really lock in my alignment, handling and live valve / spring feel and ride. If not, at least they look cool. Hahaha

    Anyone notice a increased feel in rebound. Off-roading last weekend with new eibachs on my 2020 I noticed the front shocks rebounding really hard with a thud every time I dropped off something. Never had that feeling with my 17’ raptor.

    Yes that’s exactly what mine feel like. 2020 with Eibachs. Noticed it right away. I’m getting the Camburg UCA. I’m hoping that helps. Maybe do a re-learn as well. Idk.
