If you plan on doing any offroading skip the spacers and go with a coil lift.

Link to 5100s, I like Wheelers better, sometimes cheaper. My brother has some ebach coils that he used for 3 months, befor he went to coilovers. I can see if he wants to sell them. I have heard that everyone likes the 5100s and eibach coils.

I also have 881s, if ur interested. I am going with donahoe racing coilovers.

im still new to offroad stuff to bear with me
my 5100s have the adjustable circlip(idk if they all do), should i use my stock coils and just change the position to 2.5 or should i go with the 881s or the eibachs on the stock position(which would have the same height effect i assume)?
because the adjustable circlip and the coil spacer are the same thing
any info would be appreciated

You can use your stock coils and 5100's to get lift, but I have heard that the eibach coils ride better.

Yes, the 5100's(set at stock heigth) with eibach coils will give YOU(coz you are a 4 cylinder) 3.5" of lift, but with 881s you will get close to 2.5-3" of lift.

Link to thread for 5100s with eibach coils(with picks). Note weather or not the truck is a 4cyl or v6 and if they have a bumper.

Don't put a locker in the front. You won't be able to steer,
and take the best line when wheeling. It also increases
the likely-hood of breaking CV axles.

Leave open, or go with ARB (selectable).
