  1. I swapped the OEM springs. Set on the third ring I netted right at 1.75" lift and it made my measurements front to rear exactly level. 2019 CC Z71. These shocks completely eliminated the hobby horse bouncy ride that the OEM Ranchos had. They do make smaller road irregularities that the OEM shocks just soaked up more apparent but it's by no means objectionable. The OEM shocks were downright dangerous if I hit successive large bumps at highway speed.
  2. Eibach Pro-Truck Sport ride height adjustable - $480 for all four Installed myself but did take the struts to Midas to have them swap the springs - $100
  3. I used my stock springs. I'm not sure if they have the Eibach springs out now but they weren't available at the time.
  4. Yes, mine was actually 1.75" higher in the rear, and as I said it now sits exactly level. It's interesting because my son thinks it's just a little bit nose-high but measurements show it to be even. Optical illusion I guess, but I am thinking about putting a one inch block on the rear just to restore a slight bit of rake.
  5. First time poster here, been lurking for awhile. I bought a 2019 LT Z71 a few months ago and absolutely hated the pogo stick bouncy ride whenever I'd hit consecutive large bumps at highway speed. I bit the bullet and installed the Eibach RHA shocks a few weeks ago. I set the adjusting clip on the third step from the bottom, which according to their documentation is supposed to give 1.2 to 1.7 inch lift. Mine netted out at the high end of that scale, resulting in my measurements on the fenderwells being exactly even. As far as the ride goes, it definitely stiffened it up. It took care of that bouncy ride motion but now I feel smaller irregularities more than before. It's not at all objectionable to me but it is a change. The stock shocks were extremely plush and the truck floated like a 70s large luxury car, which was nice some of the time but downright dangerous whenever encountering those large consecutive bumps. Where before a large bump would have the suspension moving up and down three times before settling, it now only moves once. Much more controllable and safer feeling.
