Want some 5100s?

I'm thinking about getting a toytec 3" lift front and rear and they reccomend using the OME shocks over the 5100s right? So I have 3 questions.

Has anyone used the toytec lifts with the 5100s?

Is it a "no no" to use the 5100s with the lifts?

If so, since the lifts come with coils already would anyone be interested in buying my stock coils with 5100s set at 2.5"? I have only had them for a couple months. What would be a reasonable price for those?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Many people have used the OME springs with the 5100 shocks. I have heard the ride is fine. OME springs with OME shocks is clearly the better way to go, BUT, before you go and throw your 5100 rear shocks away, I have heard some people have pulled apart the OME rear shocks when off roading. Seems they had a weak weld at the bottom of the shock. OME has warrantied these shocks, but I chose the 5100 for the rears because of this. Just a friendly FYI.

nah, mine was only about a 2 inch difference, but all im saying is that you can run the 5100's on the toytec coils...just keep them at the stock setting(shouldnt have to preload those springs), and they should work fine.
