if you go with the 5100's order from DSMS as they have free ship and and a better price on them as apposed to toytec you can also get the OME coils they offer. I ordered my 5100's from DSMS and the eibach coils from toytec and it all got here in about 4 days i believe but the shipping from toytec was a bit high, and for the rear im going to get the allpro 3" expo leafs cause mine are frowning, but if your leafs aren't sagged out then an 2" AAL would be fine.

All in all the setup im going to run will set me back about 600-700!

Are the leafs you have now sagging at all? If not then you should not need a new leaf pack, just a 2" AAL

Maybe you should save an extra couple hundred and buy a new leaf pack too. Maybe an OME complete kit.

Ha damn they are a bit worse than mine lol mine are just about perfectly fllat! but if you look at allpro's site they have the ones i am talking about in stock height and 3"-5" height., and also in regular and expo design which the expo's are made to handle a bit more weight for towing, but there are also other brands as well. just search for other threads about some, like dakar etc. did you decide what front lift your going to go with?

I want at least a 3 inch lift but I don't want a 6 inch DB so I was thinking of going with bilstein 5100's all the way around with eibach springs in the front. I did some searching and most people get at least 3 inches in the front with that set up. What would you guys recommend for the rear? And any input on my idea for my fronts? Thanks! Some links to your suggestions would be greatly appreciated

The OME dakars give 2.25" so that would make it close to level with the 3" eibach springs. But from all the reading i've done on here and on ttora, the 5100s are too short if you lift the rear that much. They would be near their max, giving you only about an 1" of down travel. So you would probably need some 5125s for the rear with more travel. The 5125s also cause a little issue in that they will bottom out (longer travel=longer compressed length) unless you extend your bump stops to match.

There are also a few guys on here running the eibach/dakar set up. They seem to like the lift/look/ride.

Yes, The dakars are a full pack. The OME shocks work with the OME dakar leafs.....but they are more expensive

ffr3064k is running eibach/dakars/5100s on his DC. You can pm him and ask how he likes it.

Thanks for the help snowman! I'm really interested in that setup now. How difficult is it to extend my bumpstop and would I be needing new UCA's? It'll be right at 3 inches or a bit above so i'm not sure if that'll be pushing it with the stock uca's

Extended bump stops can be made in a few different ways depending on your skills or aftermarket bumpstops can be purchased from companies like Energy.
As far as the UCAs go, the rule of thumb is they arent needed for 3" lift or less. Since ffr3064k is running that exact set up (5100s+eibachs), shooting him a PM might get some hands on experience answers.
