    How would one know if their set of eibach's has the new spring rate? Are you guys ordering directly through eibach? I've been in between springs and collars for quite some time now and I'm leaning towards the springs, but I'd rather have the newer improved model if it means a better ride quality.

    only at the very start of the run did eibach make the higher spring rate so assume no matter who you bought them from should be new rate. if you want to be safe and 100% buy direct from eibach then

    Hmmmmmm trying to decide what I think about the orange springs. I currently have the Eibach's on order and all I know is I don't want to keep them the Eibach signature silver color. I think they will look good orange, but it is just hard to tell without the fender flare on to help tie it together (for me at least).

    Do you know if they did anything special with the springs for the 2019 other than making them orange? I have heard conflicting things when and if a redesigned spring will be available. Stage3motorsports told me that they are on a production hold and won't be available for months while the people I actually ordered them through said Feb 3 they'd be in stock again. Who knows.

    its a 2 stage orange paint that matches great with the 19 orange fox shocks. they back the paint on i would say do it. would hold up much better then you getting the silver ones and painting them after.

    they did make some adjustments to these springs for 19 with live valve. what i don know exactly but that was the whole point of them taking my truck and doing a whole new set of springs for it.

    i need to start my own build thread for all my mods.

    those and about 50 other items are off truck inside and out at the painters all getting painted same color as truck I hate all that black plastic look.

    both bumpers, flares, all items on mirrors, fender vents, big hood vent, and lots of pieces on the inside of the truck.

    top silver part of brush gaurd will be blue big bottom part will be powder coat black

    side of flares will be blue under part will be painted a thick black

    molded mud flaps back side blue and inside same black as flares

    thats what is taking most of the time. he primer, sand primer sand paint bake few week process but i want it done right so i wait meantime builder working on the big list of mods i doing and waiting for the wheels to come in.
