    There were a couple threads floating around about these struts and springs recently. No real info out there about the Ram kit. I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the front struts and springs. I installed them on Saturday. Install is the same as bilstein so no new info there. They ride great so far. They are definitely better than the strut spacers I had on previously. The spacers were starting to cause my upper balljoints to separate from the control arm and they squeaked constantly. These are quiet and ride smooth. Here are a couple pics.

    Looks good. It appears that you installed them on the lowest groove ring setting, correct? I know you had the spacers on previously, but did you save your height measurements from when it was stock and can compare to current with the Eibach? Thanks

    Nice! Keep us updated on the ride quality if you notice any improvement over stock even. I was eye balling these for the 2500 but haven't found a single person running them yet.

    Just curious did you buy new strut bearing and caps or reused the old ones.
    this kit in Canada is 970.00 plus taxes.
    I'm looking at doing a leveling kit but dont want to do things twice. I thinking of RC spacer kit 300.Cdn or bils 5100s on sale 330.Cdn

    I have a air lift 1000 I just dont know what to do and I tow a Rv trail 22ft ultra lite

    Yes I used the lowest groove. With the Eibach Springs that is the 2.75" lift setting. The next one up is 3.5" which I felt would be too much. I was right around 40" from ground to center of fender with my spacers. I dont have a record of the stock measurements since I bought the truck with the spacers already installed. I will take a new measurement after my alignment and report back.

    Will do. So far they ride great. Taking a road trip next week should be a good test.

    I did replace the upper strut mounts because I figured the stock ones would be wore out after rubbing on the spacers for so long. You can reuse all the stock hardware. You can even reuse the stock springs just like on the bilsteins. I would recommend using these or bilsteins to level since they maintain the stock geometry of the suspension.

    OP, can you post a view of your CV angles as the truck sits on a flat road ?

    I'm liking the setup. Looks great. How's the feel compared to oem struts? Any noticeable differences.

    Overall they feel like stock only firmer. Very happy with them.
