i like it. looks like it leveled it a tad as well.

did you need an alignment right after the spring swap? i wouldnt think so since you didnt have to pull the spinles or anything.


SlickTahoe - that sucks that your kit made your rake worse! doesnt eibach advertise more drop in the rear on those springs???? i want my tahoe to be level.

I added a 2" leveling kit from Super Lift in the front. Now it looks perfect. I have about 1/2" of rake and the truck corners like it's on rails.

You should always get the alignment checked when you do anything that changes the attitude of the vehicle.

im talkin about getting it to the shop. when i did the drop on my S-10 with spindles & springs in the front, i was lucky i didnt wear my tires out driving 15mph for 2 miles. i had to do a cave man alignment at home to drive it to the shop.

with the coil over set-up on the tahoes it should only be a slight adjustment needed. im excited about it now. i wasnt going to touch my tahoe suspension untill i saw this thread!

hey man, i just noticed something. i can see the numbers writen on your spring box and it says 38106.540.

according to the eibach website, the PN for the non-autoride vehicles is 38107.540, and the PN for the autoride tahoes is 38106.540.

http://eibach.com/cgi-bin/htmlos.exe...07306100021227

looks like you might have the springs for the autoride vehicle on your tahoe.

just thougth id let you know....

my previous post was meant for GAPP. but obviously the springs for the autoride trucks fit the non-autorides....
