Eibach Pro System Lift

I haven't been able to find anything on here or elsewhere via the Google about people who have installed or reviewed the lift kit Eibach has. It's much pricier than the RRO, but obviously because it's included with springs and dampers.

The kit looks like it just came out, so that probably explains the lack of info.

Anyone else heard of this?

Eibach Pro System Lift

I'm still lurking around for future mods whenever I get some bigger tires and trying to find the right way to go. This set-up seems like it may be better quality than the RRO parts and better performing, but I'm not positive.

It also appears that it deletes the factory rake or similar rake the RRO lift still has. The Eibach lift is 2" lift front and .5" rear. I'm liking the looks of this more and more, because I'd love to get rid of the rake as well.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

The Eibach kit would be the better way to go vs the RPO kit. The shock improvement would be a huge improvement

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

I'm very interested in this kit for our 14 Limited Diesel that we are suppose to take delivery of in the next couple weeks. I would like to know a little more about it or get some feedback on it from someone who has the kit installed before I pull the trigger on it.

You may have to be the guinea pig for this one because it's so new and no one has it yet, that I've been able to find.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

Before you make the decision to go with this kit make sure you compare the stock spring rates with the ones on this Eibach kit. Eibach has a history of using spring rates that are softer than stock on kits and springs that arent for competition.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

Damn, they're proud of that kit aren't they? That's not much less expensive than the Rock Krawler lift on my JK. Wonder why so expensive for just springs and dampers?

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

.5"or 12mm, worth of lift in the rear? For $1200. Good gawd. And with a spring rate double the OE rate, I would hate to see how the ride quality is.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

FRONT:
OE rate: 34 N/mm (194 lbs/in)
Pro-System-Lift rate: 38 -71 N/mm (217 - 405 lbs/in)

REAR:
OE rate: 90 N/mm (513 lbs/in)
Pro-System-Lift rate: 70 - 115 - 140 N/mm
(400 - 655 - 800 lbs/in)

Does this mean that you can adjust the spring rate? If so, it doesn't seem too different than the stock rates.

The varying spring rates as listed generally mean that the springs have progressive spring rates. The further the springs are compressed the higher the rate becomes.

Re: Eibach Pro System Lift

Yeah.....I'd say Eibach is off their rocker thinking that lift is worth that much. For the same or better performance, get the RRO 2.5 kit and add in a set of Bilsteins or any other damper of choice. Bet you come out under $1200 by quite a bit. A set of Bilstein 5100s for my JK cost me about $385. Add that to the $409 for the RRO kit and you're sitting right about $800.
