We call out a 1" lift for our our rear spring, so using an Icon 2" will certainly be more lift in the rear.

Thanks Mark. I think you might be getting me mixed up with @daesonn who was disappointed about his/her rake. I'm happy with the 2" lift I got in the rear but the issue was with my front lift. I'm only getting 2" (driver front) & 1.75" (driver passenger) with the Eibach Pro Truck coil & struts. I was hoping to get 2.75".

Doesnít make sense... itís a 2.75 front lift , how are you only getting 2 & 1.75...?

I did some more measuring this weekend. To account for differences due to slight slopes, I took multiple measurements. My driver side ranged from 1.75" - 2" of lift and passenger side ranged from 2.25" - 2.5" depending on the direction I parked. Talked to Dave from Eibach and he mentioned its likely due to my higher rear 2" Icon coil (compared to the 1" Eibach coil) shifting the more weight to the front. That makes sense to me but didn't realize it would make that much of a difference. Anyways, I ended up ordering some top plate spacers to get me closer to 2.75".

When and who did you speak to at Eibach? I called them 2 weeks ago and got this response...

When I spoke with Eibach they said a lot of folks with no added weight choose to place it on the 2nd clip right from the start and are very happy with the height. I on the other hand have an extra 220#going up front and said I will definitely need to be on the 2nd clip anyway. I asked, will I need to go to the 3rd clip because I want to sit right at 3"with all the weight, he said it will sit at about 2.9"with that weight on the 2nd clip.... If I go to the third it will effect the handling to much.

Mark, can you verify what clip to put the fronts on to get almost 3" WITH an added 220# bumper and 90# full roof rack? We're getting conflicting info from Eibach support.

Thanks!

This is rough, but if you take the 220 / 2 you get load per corner. Then take the 90 / 4 you get 22.5 roof rack per corner. SO your total added weight to each front spring is 132.5.

If your spring is 650lbin. it takes 650lb to compress the spring 1 inch. Now divide 650 by 132.5 and you get 0.2, so approximately 1/4" compression at the spring. I don't have the motion ratio in front of me though, so its hard to say what that looks like at the fender well.

How much will ride comfort and travel be affected by going to the 2nd or 3rd perch

As long as the shock at rest is not in the top-out zone then ride comfort should not be effected. We designed the damper to function within the 2.75" height range so provided you are around that range at static you'll retain the same amount of up and down travel. If anything, the additional weight will make it slightly more compliant then rigs with no weight on the front.

Anyone running this system?
I did exactly the same. Have you gotten any updates on delivery? I was told in December parts were on backorder and they expected to ship in January. Emailed last week and was told parts were in and kits would be going out early this week. Called today and was told parts were backordered and weren't due in until 2/26.

Maybe Mark knows something different?

I can understand the backorders...but to keep putting back shipping dates is not right. Seema like bait n switch.

I ordered directly through Eibach, I donít think they charge you until the product ships.
