Eibach Pro Lift Spring Kit 1.4" Front 0.7" Rear

Just picked it up tonight from the shop, im in love.

Tires: Falken Wildpeak AT3W 245/65/17
Wheels: Black Rhino Overland 17x8 +35mm offset

No Rubbing at full lock forward and reverse. Way smoother coming down my very long very rough dirt driveway. A Little less acceleration with the bigger tires but not terrible.

Figured i would share.

Very nice. Looking forward to long term review on this. I like the idea of a spring only lift.

I plan on doing a comprehensive review, give me a list i will go over it.

Currently i was thinking about waiting till i hit about 2K on the vehicle with the lift before doing that.

Plus many more offroad things

Ive heard great things about those Falkens and plan on running them on my tundra. How much of a hit did your MPG take?

I’m curious as to how this lifts the car in the front. Since the strut is fixed in height when assembled, how can a spring add 1.4” of lift? Other kits use a spacer on top of the strut, but how does this one lift the car?

Not bashing but I want to understand!

Longer spring. You could also do a stiffer spring that wont compress as much with the weight of the car but you will affect your ride quality more.


So you know when you jack your car up the wheel drops? Its because the shock can both compress and extended, longer coils will not let it smush down as far as a stock spring would. Down side is it won't extend as much as it used to, but as long as you aren't racing the baja 1000 you should be fine

The coils are definitely longer, there's no doubt about that.



But, when the strut is bare and dissasembled, the shaft is by default fully extended. Even if you take a longer coil and compress it to fit on the strut before installing your strut mount, once you remove your coil compressors the whole coil is still limited in extension by the length of the strut shaft and held in place by the mount.

Stiffer coils might not compress as much once the vehicle is on the ground (therefore 'lifting' the vehicle) but is 1.5'' lift really possible? I'm more curious than anything.
