Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

Thanks for sharing your real-world experiences with both.
I know I appreciate. Will be ordering my RM Mids soon and will give you a call.

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

I just went ahead and ordered this new Eibach kit...Tire Rack has it for $271 + an additional 10% back from Eibach in the form of a rebate check. I was torn between three options...this new Eibach kit, just using the old Eibach rear springs + OEM front or ordering the RM mid, but at the end of the day, I don't want to mess with potentially having to add new control arms and I also needed to maintain the OEM tow rating or at least have a kit that doesn't sag in the rear when loaded down. I prefer stiff rides as well and it seems like the consensus is that Eibach is stiffer than RM.

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

If the 2nd eibachs drops it more than the first...youll be borderline needing control arms as well. I dont need control arms for my hybrid RMs drop.

Eibach claims factory alignment specs can be met with this kit. If not, Eibach will be buying them back from me. It seems like the RM Mids are 0.5" lower in the rear than these new Eibachs and with the RMs, it is a 50/50 shot of whether or not factory alignment specs can be held. I would venture to guess that being 0.5" higher in the rear with these Eibachs wouldn't cause alignment issues. The alignment numbers on Eibach's site look pretty good for the new kit.

Road magnet is the absolute worst still waiting 6 months with no replacement...bought from Chad he was a gentleman. But road magnet sucks from a customer service aspect

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

Boy bmrisko your beating that sagging to death but have posted no other posts where owners say they sag with a load. Plus i posted the exact info on both springs and you cant accept that. I guess facts dont matter?

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

What was said about sagging? Might have missed it or it was deleted...
Any how I noticed my truck sit down a good amount with three adults in the rear, don't know if that's sagging persay. I will say I'm still very content with the look, ride, and performance of the RM Mids still.

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

It's a progressive spring as the truck compresses the spring stiffens you may see a tad of sag but the spring rate as they compress is actually higher than OEM this is how and why I am 110% sure they do not per say sag or lose towing capabilities of the OEM towing. (This is a sales pitch by another vendor who actually was dropped by RM and tried to copy them uncessfully)

The springs actually do start out at a lower rate than OEM but that's all I'm saying cant say any more about the success of the hands down best spring option available with 50X more sold tan anyone else's springs and for good reason they work and work well.

Lotsa miss information and opinions going on about sagging here LOL.

Also I want to address alignment I have seen may be 50 posts about alignments and with 800+ sets of mids and 200+ sets of extremes sold I can say with certainty alignments can get back to OEM depends on the trucks Shocks and struts age and a huge factor as to who is doing the alignments. I've seen -3.00 and the same customer I advised that it can be better went to another shop and got to the specified OEM range of 1.8 and 1.9 that's .01 out from OEM and as I have mentioned the sheets that the truck is aligned to is a guide only align your truck OEM before you drop is I know for a Fact because dozens have call to let me know their trucks are 1.8-2.1 out from OEM before any drop so a lot of people here are stuck on a number that the alignment shops only use as a guide when the truck comes with just as much camber as many are ending up with with mids.

As I said Mids are the best and most popular spring to retain the OEM feel of the truck with a lil bit of stifness in Sport mode and for good reason.

Their is absolutely no need to get adjustable arms to correct .01-.03.

All ^ this info is not my opinion and is made up by customers fact's from them.. Instead of what I believe, I feel this is the best way to lead people in the right direction since my opinion is typically usless in life Haa.

Re: New Eibach kit for WK2 SRT

I understand and agree completely. From the info you guys provided the initial visual drop with more passengers or load, isn't an indication of lesser load rating. The spring actually transitions from softer to stiffer under increased load.
