    So I have been hearing of several people getting a clunking sound after eibach install at fool droop scenarios. Is that a true statement

    Haven't heard a single noise. Great mod. Rides great.

    Just make sure you torque the lower bolt, that’s where a lot of guys had the noise.

    Whats the price range (or # of hours charged) people are seeing for getting these installed at a shop?

    The Deaver or Icon installation will include removal of the rear blocks. That's why the Deaver +3 raises the truck 1" over stock. The Deaver spring is 3" taller than the stock leaf spring, but with removing the 2" OEM block, nets you 1" of lift.

    But yes, you'll need the aftermarket springs and the appropriate bump stop extension.

    Biggest issues is correct lower shock bolt torque. It's a big one at 406 ft/lbs.

    Plant for 2 hours of labor plus alignment.

    Got my truck aligned after ~100 miles. I have the shop the alignment specs from Eibach, here's how it came out. The tech recommended this camber kit to get it dialed:

    I drove it around all day today, felt fine other than the steering wheel being ever so slightly off center to the left. What do you guys think? Should I get the kit or leave it alone until I need my next alignment?

    I have noticed the EXACT same steering wheel slightly to the left deal..... that’s interesting. Thought it was just me.

    Good to hear it's not just me. Hopefully back to center when I opt for the camber kit down the road.

    The $225 quoted above is an amazing price! I’ve seen prices all over the board and it depends on your market. In my small market, didn't have much choice and mine was $550 (install and alignment). I’ve heard prices from $225 (now) up to $700. Most seem to be falling in 400-600 range. Really depends on your market. Shop around but get someone that knows what they’re doing.
