About to order. Will this work?

So right now I have a 3in spacer lift with blocks and the ride is shit. I am planning on doing 5100/Eibach but my question is should i run 5100s in the rear or 5125s? I already have new 3'' springs. Will this work and do I need anything else? I have a 99 4x4

struts/shocks

Eibachs

If you have 3" of lift in the back, you should go with 5125's. The 5100's are only designed to accommodate 2" of lift.

I think your best bet is to talk to Sonny or Marco @ Downsouthmotorsports.com. They know their stuff, and I know the 5125's and 5150's come in different sizes and they would be able to steer you in the right direction.

There is no 5100 for the rear, the 5100 series isn't just one shock it's a series of shocks. The first shock in that line up is the 5100 ride height adjustable front strut, then to accomodate the well known (& needed) AAL there became a need for longer upgraded rear shocks from the added lift, that brought in the 5125, the 2nd shock released for the 5100 series, then 5150, etc;....

I have the adjustable 5100's in the front and regular 5100 shocks in the rear
But get the 5150 or 25's I'm going to upgrade to them soon
The only thing with the three inch springs for the front it's a little stiff but rides a lot better than stock you just gotta really slow down over speed bumps
