    No you can always skip the slot delete and unless you are doing some other upgrading like a new upper control arm, or you’re pounding more pavement than anything else, by all means just swap the springs and call it a day with the upgrades

    Good to know. I don't think I'd do UCAs, but that's what I said about the other 10 mods under my belt at this point.

    Forged Offroad can do it for you and rebuild your shocks in the process. Affordable and easy if you can get to Loomis

    How is handling feel in the corners? I live in a canyon with alot of curves. Noticeably top heavy? Current stance feels solid with stock.

    I can definitely feel the slight height difference but the “sway and tilt” when going into corners seems pretty good. I believe the ride is a touch better than stock for what I like. My original impression of the ride was that it felt a bit too soft and had a fair amount of sway and tilt in the corners. The Eibachs are a bit stiffer so it cut down on that part but the ride itself doesn’t seem to have suffered. I really like the ride so far and have no regrets as of yet! In my opinion, worth the money.

    EIbachs while I was doing a little bling to the brake calipers. I do like the new stance. Measured prior to placement and definite rake which was noticeable. Can’t say I’ve measured after placement. It just looks right now:

    Did mine today, absolutely worth the $. Gets rid of a noticable amount of body roll and brake dive, but doesn't feel any less plush than stock. I was also surprised how light the stock springs were compared to the Eibachs. Are you all giving the springs ~100 miles to settle before an alignment? Also is anyone finding it necessary to adjust the headlights?

    Yup...I’m gonna wait a week or so before getting the alignment done. I will also be checking out my headlights....the Eibachs did lift the front end about 2”.

    Didn’t know you needed to wait. I heard the settling takes quite a while, more than a week or 100 miles. Didn’t know that would have an impact on the alignment. I had alignment done at time of install which was recommended to me.
