The Elbach kit threw my whole alignment off and I need to get a 4 wheel alignment. The dealership checked everything and said nothing else was wrong so we'll see what happens after the alignment.

Re: Eibach Springs on EcoDiesel

Wait, you never got it re-aligned after the Eibach springs were installed?

That's necessary from what I've read and been told to do when I get mine done.

Yeah I did. About 3 times from Merchants tire and they couldn't get it right. I took it to the dealership and they said it was still all out of whack.

Oh well damn that's not good. Maybe just the one shop doing it wrong hopefully...Is the dealer trying to align it for you now?

That's a buzzkill. Sorry to hear that.

Again, keep us updated and I hope it gets sorted soon

Re: Eibach Springs on EcoDiesel

A few hours at the dealership for a proper 4-wheel alignment fixed everything. I'll be requesting my money back form Merchant's for the "1-year unimited" tire alignment package I purcahsed.

Good news! That makes me feel better about getting my mid drop springs on eventually.

Re: Eibach Springs on EcoDiesel

Sly guy, your red on the tail lights looks darker. Did you replace them? It makes it looks so much better. Please let me know what you did. Thanks.

How much did that run? What did they paint vs smoke? How do they get the smoke color? Thanks so much. I have a Deep Cherry Red Overland and the darker tail lights would make the back not all blend so much. Its a lot of red right now and that smoke would look sweet!!
