Need some opinions

Hey all,

So here's where I stand right now. I drive a 08 DC SB 4x4. I have 5100's @ 2.5 with the stock coils, and a rear TSB. I'm alittle front high, but only by about half an inch. Recently, I've been considering swapping the 5100's out. With the springs pre-loaded at 2.5, the ride quality has suffered quite a bit, and overall, I'm just considering doing a full round upgrade and moving on to something a bit more "full".

Here's a few options I've thought about, but I thought that the guru's here might have a bit more insight to the pro's and con's of each setup, at least more so than I have.

I'm looking at maybe just swapping springs, to either the eibachs, or the OME lift coils. I don't really want to drop any lift height from what I've got now, and wouldn't mind increasing it a bit either, but nothing too substantial.

Or, I've considered swapping out to the full OME front setup, and doing away with my 5100's.

I'm also looking at the All-Pro 3" leaf pack to replace to rear TSB leafs, and a set of UCA's in order to fix the alignment problems I have right now.

So, to summarize:

Replace stock coils with OME/Eibach coils while retaining the same height, pick up an all-pro leaf pack, and a set of UCA's to fix alignment.

or

Go full OME front, with all pro leaf pack, and a new set of UCAs.


Getting alittle less "rough" with the front is my ultimate goal, while maybe achieving a bit more lift in the process. I do light to moderate wheeling, but nothing intense.

Which will yield the better end result? Opinions on which way you would go? Is there a better option for the money? Eventually, I'd like to squeak some 285/75/16's under the fenders, but that'll come after I fix all this stuff.

Well, what do you all think?

I just put on the Eibach springs with 5100's and ride is awesome. I got 3" set at 0 on a 1st gen now I don't know if you will get 3" at 0 with a 2nd gen but you will like the ride. I think you can set the 2nd gen's to .85 with the Eibach's
