I've been in contact with both TAP and Eibach. Both are telling me this kit is 4+ weeks out. I ordered the total kit (Coils + Rear Leveling + Shocks + Bump Stops) and that may be the hold up.

Got the fronts on! Wasn’t that bad with kdss, hardest thing was getting the damn tie rods to drop from the knuckle( I advise renting the tie Rod puller autozone carries, the hammer to knuckle didn’t work for me). I didn’t have to disconnect the KDSS, I jacked up the KDSS piston to do the passenger side then jacked up the passenger lca do to the driver side.

I adjusted one side down from 16 to 4 threads since the height they came with was damn near over 3 inches. As I began the passenger side the spanner wrench pin broke. I tried to weld it back on but after a few turns it broke again and I gave up. Hopefully the alignment place tomorrow has one.

Overall took me about 3 hours and would have been less had I rented the tie Rod puller ahead of time. I’m a ok mechanic and have experience with suspension and chassis work. If you have the tools this is a doable job for most if follow the directions and have a friend helping.

I’ll post pics of the stance once I do the rears. Over all the install was easy aside from the damn spanner wrench breaking. It’s kinda crappy that the damn spanner wrench broke so easily, looing forward to the billet one when they release it.

I also can’t speak on the ride yet until I have the rears installed and the alignment done

Did your 2.0 coilovers come with studs in the top hats or did it come with bolts?

I would contact Eibach and inform them of the broken spanner. They said they have an older one and a new one and it should not fail! (Not the billet, as itís not available yet)

I reached out to them and they are sending a new wrench. I had one of the newer ones which unfortunately still broke. I have bolts on top.

I just got mine on so I can't say how they are holding up. What is nice about this kit though is the adjustability. Although its hard to get to being able to adjust the rears for weight is pretty cool. Overall I'm happy with it, I got everything for about $1400 out the door with taxes.

Ive had the whole lot (2.0 fronts and adjustable rears) on for about 1k miles and 2 months... Beautiful. Handles my loads (giggity) perfectly. Stiffer when unloaded but never skips over a bump.

What mods do you have and what spring rate in the rear?

I have a rack, some sliders, a ladder, heavier wheels, still have 265s. I have 100lbs constant weight in back. I have the fronts set at 1" (2" lift) and rears set at 1" in the back (2"). The rears are the 250# (200# on site I think). The bump stops are top notch.

Can you take a pic of the threads you have showing front and back for reference?

7 month wait! Have been told "it's 4 weeks out" for the past 3 months. Getting really frustrated here....
