To Level or Not to Level? That is the question...

BCJ001, How do you like the Eibach Pro-Truck lift? I am really considering it and there is not much on the forum about it that I can find. What is you opinion of the ride quality, ease of install and how are your ball joint angles? Also, how long have you had it installed? 

I am VERY happy with it... the stock Rancho's were a "smoother" ride, but the "bouncy" feeling when going over speed bumps, or bumpy roads drove me crazy! Where before it would "bounce" 3 or 4 times when going over a speed bump, it settles very fast, with no 'bounces" at all.... it is a slightly rougher ride (more like a truck and less like a caddy) but not bad by any means.... just stiffer. I was like you and tried to find as much info as I could with minimal success. I have had it installed for ~10K miles, no issues, and angles look good. The shop I had install it (and align) said all the ball joint angles looked great. There was a user on here "waterfowler" I believe, that had a good thread on it. I did find his youtube video (below) that covers the install. If you have any questions or need any pics let me know  =)    No regrets here at all, and I would do it again.

bcj 001, thanks for the help. I am pretty sure I will be doing this when I get back from Kuwait. Do you have any issues with the size of tire you are running?

Someone already posted my vid and my how to so Thank you to whoever did that.

 

My 2 cents, I also added a larger rear block to give me an additional +1” in the rear. Retained a rake with the front at 2.5” of lift so I was happy with the end result.

 

Love the ride, would not turn back.524bdeef0b69c5135570e55406fa11bc.jpg

My current truck is the first one I have leveled.  Honestly I like the look of it.  I have Goodyear Wrangler Trailrunner 275/60R20 with no rubbbing.  I have installed 275/60R20 on my last 2 pick ups with no rubbing.  I installed the newer tires before I leveled it.
