I kept it captive with the strap and was able to adjust the height with ease. The other pulled it to the lca. It was way easier then the bottle jack which I find always gets knocked over under the piston because of the front to back movement.

On the passenger side I used the floor jack to compress the piston. But honesty next time I’ll prob use that strap method again.

I hope you dont have to do it again but just a heads up!
I have heard that. That two strap method really work well tho. Minimal effort and lots of control.

Alignment at firestone later this afternoon.

Took it around the block a bit to help things settle and check for weird noises. Made sure to hit a lot of speed bumps and drainage whooptiedoos. Initial impressions is that these springs feel much more progressive then the ones I took off. The front was a smidge harsh before but only really highlighted by the change.

Checked everything with a level. I have a smidge of rake at the frame which I think is good enough to say I’ll just leave the swapped rear coils in. Truck sits really nicely now.

Lean is noticeable but maybe it will settle down over time. At this point I really don’t see myself wasting more time trying to correct it.

Firestone lifetime alignment ftw. No more wasting money.

They did a good job. Tracks much better now.

Mislabeled or faulty lift coils? *Saga*-ab203328-dbf5-4331-bcb4-fc788f13ba8a-jpg

Imma call this one good. I’m looong overdue for some camping.

Thank you to everyone that helped me think through this.

This may not be over. Took some measurements last night because it looked lower. I was really not happy with the number I got. Looking like they are sagging just like the last ones. I will have to confirm after work.

I have no words to express my frustration and dred of doing this all again for a 4th time. It won't be dobinsons products going back in if I can help it.

How much height did you lose? Once you scrub it after install they really shouldn't lose any height at all (hopefully).

Think I measured like 20/21 +/-. Almost where it was before I pulled the coils before. I'll have to confirm later.

Got on my back and really made sure my eyeball level was on point.

21.25 passenger maybe a little less

21.75 drivers maybe a little more

So, tbh they MAY have settled ever so slightly but I think I was being hyperbolic last night/this morning. In my defense I think you all could understand my frustrations and skepticism.

I’m still pretty skeptical that these are going to hold lift over time. I’ll keep throwing up measurements as the months tick by.
