Finally got my Eibach's/5100's assembled and installed!




Hard to tell from the pictures, but by measurement, I gained about 0.75" from my previous 3" spacer lift and old springs. (Eibach/5100 above and 3" spacer below)

alright, my alcans aren't rated as high as the stock leafs+aal in bearing weight, but they should hold fine it seems...i was just too lazy to call all-pro for their hitch receiver weight rating. looks like their attachment will work fine. thanks for the help, man!

I'm going the same route as you in regards to the suspension. I have a 3" spacer lift as well, and when its removed, I'm going to throw it at a cat. Don't like it!

And its a good thing you live in Ohio, or I would steal that front bumper. Effing love it dude. I want the same thing on my 2004 Pre. I'll need to call them.

If you don't mind, how much did it run ya'?

Keep up the good, clean work. Sweet truck.

Thanks for the comments, guys!

Next Mod question...
Should I get an 18" magnaflow installed or save up for Glassworks 4.5" front fiberglass fenders?

I'm looking at some fiberglass around some different places...
I'll have to wait until I'm out of college to LT, but I would love to someday!

damn good looking truck do you think the 55w are a little overkill, just wondering cause many people have said. or were they not that much brighter than the 35w?

The 55's are noticeably brighter than the 35's, but I have them aimed down quite a bit, so I've only been flashed (with my low beams on) a few times. My 35w and 55w kit were both 6000k and the 55w is much whiter, and better in rain/snow.

Probably overkill, but I like them...

I probably would have gotten them in 55w also....

I test mounted my red "SickSpeed" (knock-off Hella) horns behind the grille. Ignore the bug guts..



I thought it looked too busy in the front, (with raptor led's, silver emblem, and red horns) so I plasti-derped my front badge black.

Now waiting for BAMF LCA skids!

My bumper covers part of where the stock skid went, so it's gone. I think they have a version on their website that uses the skid too.
