    Looks good. Only reason to level is to put on larger tires (37s).

    The instructor at Raptor Assault told us most people modify their suspensions too soon (me included); that the truck will settle to near level. He didn’t say how long that takes or how much cycling of the suspension.

    Damn, I miss my banshee. That thing would climb any sand dune. You got a better pic of yours?

    I can see more gap in the rear wheel well. The suspension is soft, so I think at times it can just settle after a ride or where you park. The rake may be pronounced on an SCREW as well.

    You are right, there is about 1 1/4-1 1/2 inch difference in the gap front to rear. Really have to look hard to really tell though and it being a scab may make it less noticeable. It is kind of odd that the bedrails are level as are the running boards. Not enough rake for me to worry about changing it I don't think.

    If it look level enough to you, then just ride it out. I had noticeable rake on my ‘19 SCREW. And I like a level truck. So installed Eibachs. Been all good.

    So other than reduced nose dive when braking, did you notice any other ride changes after installing the Eibachs?
