    I did the same springs about 5,000 miles ago. Only changed the springs and had Ford realign. They are the perfect height. The ride feels better than OEM. If you set the OEM and Eibach springs next to each other you can see how cheap and puny the OEM are.

    Agreed! It's like comparing the factory leafs to a set of Deaver+3s. I also only changed the springs, no need for new UCAs. Have put a couple hundred more miles on since my first post and I love them.

    UCA's can always be beneficial (not needed) when raising the front. Do you remember your alignment specs? Specifically the caster before and after.

    I know Pacific mentioned one on one help but does anyone have a link to share where we could read up which ones were used?

    Here you go : )

    TECHNICAL INFORMATION
    FRONT:
    OE rate: 93 N/mm (533 lbs/in)
    PRO-LIFT-KIT rate: 102 N/mm (583 lbs/in)
    Bump-stop: OE
    Damper: OE
    Tubing: N/A
    OE hub center to fender: 608 mm
    PRO-LIFT-KIT hub center to fender: 672 mm

    OE Camber = -0.9 -0.7deg (+/-0.1 deg)
    PRO-LIFT-KIT Camber = -0.4 deg
    OE Toe = 0 - 0.2 deg (+/-0.10 deg)
    PRO-LIFT-KIT Toe = 0.1 deg


    I think there are very few G2s running Eibachs let alone ones with 37s now, but I have a feeling more guys will be running these soon. Just got back from Snoball and they performed awesome. The Eibachs provide 2.5" of lift. Having done 4 Snoballs and 2 pre-runs for Snoball in a G1 and now the 5th Snoball in a G2..The G2s are amazing. I recovered several G1s over the weekend. The only G2s that got stuck were when the owners ran out of talent.

    The caster would specs would be ideal. No big deal if you don't have them. I was just wondering how much adjustability the OE cams have
