Eibach 5100 Question. Help asap!

I just took my truck in to get the Eibach coils and adjustable 5100s put on and was under the impression that the 5100s came at the 0 level. I got my truck back a few weeks ago and took a look because I thought it was really stiff and it wasnt getting any better. The 5100s are set at 2.5 and my cvs are at a really steep angle. How much would it cost to get this fixed? Is it easy enough I could do it? Thanks

You should be able to adjust them down, or get a diff drop kit.

You would need a spring compressor or you can take them in to have the coils removed.

Nope. If they are the standard 5100s you need to take the coil off to adjust the bottom plate. Also a diff drop doesn't do anything for 2nd gens.

Yes and no I adjusted some 5100 with removing the coil just compress it and move the clip down It saves a little time.
