Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

Looks good, alignment should fall into spec with no issues. I will probably swap to the road magnets once released because I don't like how the rear won't hold much weight with the stock front springs. The ride height was well worth doing for the time being as I think the rear eibachs are to high also

Didn't road magnet release their springs already. I'm pretty sure I saw them on their website a week ago.

Yea. I also don't think that the alignment falls into factory spec in the rear based on what I read from the guy who had them installed. But I may be wrong on that.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

Any updates on alignment??? My Eibach kit just came in. I'm installing it as is, it's low enough for my tastes. I love the factory camber and setup and would like to duplicate it with the drop.

Do I need to provide factory specs to the shop or can they duplicate it without the specs?

Also, has anyone messed with getting their bushings timed/indexed? Or did you just do a basic drop/alignment?

Any help is appreciated.

Re: What do you guys think about Eibach front springs on the rear?

I just did basic drop and alignment with the eibachs camber should be good. The shop has all the specs for the alignment. You may ask if they can go a little more positive on the camber as I got some inner tire wear with the stock specs and eibachs on the front

Thanks. So do you have the full Eibach kit installed as intended, or a custom job? If it's stock eibach do you have a link to a picture thread?

I'm having trouble finding good picks of the Eibach drop and stock wheels. I've seen a side shot or two but not a lot of angles. I'm curious how it will look from the rear. On the road magnets the wheels look too "tucked" for my taste, I want to make sure the Jeep maintains its' stance.

I had the eibach fronts with the stock fronts on the rear. It was to even for me so I had chad at black ops put me together a package that consisted of the road magnet 1.8" drop front springs with the 1.8" drop rear springs so I can keep the raked look
