    I'll soon be lifting my daughter's '18 Trailhawk and have decided to go mild. I settled on Eibach springs for about one inch of lift and 235/65/17 Geolandar M/Ts on stock rims. An AVID Radius Pre-Runner bumper will provide a little protection up front.

    Now a potential problem has emerged; I have been told that running the Ebiach springs with the stock struts is fine and my research seems to back this up, but some are intimating that I must purchase new Bilstein one inch lift struts.

    So, hivemind, what do you think?

    Are you sure of the tire size? All I can find is
    Geolandar M/T G003 - Size: LT235/80R17 or
    Geolandar M/T G003 - Size: LT225/65R17
    I have been looking for a good mud tire in LT235/65R17 for a long time.

    "The 225/65R17 Yokohama Geolandar M/T G003 has a diameter of 28.7", a width of 8.6", mounts on a 17" rim and has 723 revolutions per mile. It weighs 39.2 lbs, has a max load of 2150/1930 lbs, a maximum air pressure of 65 psi, a tread depth of 17/32" and should be used on a rim width of 6-8". "
