    Nick,
    which springs are you referring to for the rear? I assume Icon leafs that we discussed on another thread?

    My comment was for either the Deaver or the Icons. If Deaver, we need to understand how much weight is in the bed to determine whether or not we want to run the regular or HD springs. If Icon, the weight in the bed will determine what height we need to set the Icon springs at.

    Charged me $350 to install eibachs including alignment and including mounting and balancing of my method headlocks on 37s with trimming. (I bought wheels and tires from the shop as well at a better price than anyone else)

    Sounds about right. A bit lower here in Houston but that is super cheap for LA!!

    Thats about what I was thinking. My quote of $529 was without tire mount/balance but with alignment. But with the scarce selection of shops in town able to do this, I'm not about to spend tons of time or energy shopping around. I'll probably just pay the $529.

    So I measured the fender gap from the top of the tire to the bottom of the fender on front/back. My 2019 is 7.5" in the front and 8.65" in the back. Thats not really a huge difference, so I'm guessing the Eibach should help me get at least visually level.

    I have a Reatrax cover on my bed so maybe that helps get more level. But when I look at the truck, it really looks close to level. So a total of $8XX to get another 1.5 inches of front height, thats a tough decision.

    IMO, I would leave it alone. put any weight in the back then you will be leveled out. get springs and put weight in the back then u will be nose up. Or I guess you could get the rpg 1.5 inch collars they were only raising front by 3/4 to 1 inch on 17 and 18s by most accounts. Have to do some research regarding the 19s.

    New rims with the Eibachs in the background.

    The second photo is on my elevated driveway with around 200 pounds in the bed so I'm sitting nose high at the moment of this pic.
