1st gen lift question

Right now we have a 2 inch spacer in the front and a 2 inch lift shackle in the back. I want it different so what'd be better?

1.
Eibachs and 5100s w/aal and more 5100s or 5125 or whatever we'd need for 3 inches

2. OME everywhere with an aal

this is where the question comes in. We're building some plate metal bumpers and putting a winch up front soon. With the extra weight, would the eibachs be better? Also if anyone has any additional information to doing this, that'd be great because as far as I know, it's all just take it out and put it in except for mounting the shocks in the springs. Also again, I'd love some part numbers for all of these parts if you all happen to have them laying around..

Thanks guys!

You can run OMEs 882s or 883s if you have additional weight in the front.
JLee is running full armor on his Eibach coils and looks to be doing well.

Both are nice kits. If it were me, I'd go with the OME. (Saving up for it currently). You could run the Dakar springs in the rear for a full setup for $340 more.

I hear the Dakars squeak, and I'd rather not have squeaky spring. If anybody could say it's not so, that'd be great haha

Also, we'd be doing a diff drop with this.

Yep I love my Eibachs they do lift quite a bit so I've ripped a hole in my driver side CV boot but they hold the weight of my 200lb bumper and winch no problem.

I say go with the 5100s and eibachs up front and 5100s and an AAL in the rear if your leaf pack isn't completely shot. The eibachs will support the bumper no problem.

Hey JLee, you've got 33's right? how much did you have to trim out to fit those if any?

edit: also do the 5100s accommodate the lift you get with the eibachs? I hear the springs give 3" and the shocks accommodate 2.5

i was kinda under the impression they give a 3" lift with your stock bumper. once you put a bumper and a winch it'll be more like 2.5. pretty sure JLee ripped that CV boot before he had the new weight up front.
