    The eibachs were slightly taller. The eibachs were brand new and Geisers are broken in.

    No worries. I’m not the person switching. I was just trying to help the guy who is. I’d like to know as well.

    From everything I’ve researched they are both great springs. Eibach had a rocky start with the spring rate being 588 or something but after they dropped to 548(ish) they have been great.

    Never heard of anyone complain about Geisers. From what I’ve been told the reason the price is so different is simply because Eibach manufactures in a huge warehouse making several hundreds/thousands a batch, while Geiser only makes a few hundred a batch.

    I simply went with Eibach due to the price point and want to buy lights in the near future.

    • Geisers are progressive and eibachs are linear. Here is a pic with oem, Geiser and Eibach. In that order 66255AB4-F799-473A-B578-1FEDC836C39D.jpeg

    Hey guys, I'm looking to try out the 1.7" height springs Eibach released specifically for 2019s with the live shocks versus 2.5" for 2018 and before. Still just kind of experimenting with what will work best on the 19s.

    As I said before re: Icons, I most likely just got a bad set of leaf springs. But their customer service model is horrible compared with Deaver. My outfitter is replacing the leafs and we decided to go with Deaver because of the much better support Deaver has provided them in the past.

    Bahaha yeah it gets hectic! If you ordered Geisers I’m sure you’ll love them. Like I said I’ve fumbled through SEVERAL threads comparing the springs and the consensus is they are both great and preferred over perch collars.

    I’ll also add, @Wfo has messed around with both springs and I’m sure has driven with both pair underneath a raptor so I’m sure he can shed some personal knowledge
