I have to agree with Scott here, I run the hybrid set up as well and you are really low in the rear. Maybe you made the same mistake most of us have and put the front springs in the rear? I ran the stock front springs in the rear and eibachs on the front for a bit. Liked the look bur the front springs can't bear much load in the rear

Eibachs. They don't lower it that much, or SRT Springs are a good option for you as well since you have a Laredo. I'd go eibachs though

I went SRT springs as people have said that eibach will lower the rear too much. Also with eibach, you might need shocks early than with SRT.

Ok, how come you like Eibachs better?

I looking to get something that's easy to install and reliable.

Thanks for you help.

Eibachs are stiffer than stock SRT Springs. If you have self leveling springs in the rear the SRT Springs will not swap right over. Can't remember what you have to change though

It's the self leveling shocks you need to swap out for non load leveling ones, like bilstien 4600's or srt

Nice, I want a little stiffer ride anyway. Any recommendation which Eibachs springs I should get?

Thanks for you help!

The SRT eibachs might get you a touch more drop over the non srt eibachs
