Eibach question

I've heard that with eibach coils on 5100s in front that it gives you too much lift if you don't have a certain bumper. I have a grill guard would that help?

Don't know if that is true but a grill guard wouldn't help with fitting a lift

Eibachs give 3" of lift on the zero setting with the billys, and you shouldn't set them at anything above that.

Not true, you can go as much as .85 with the Eibachs and 5100's. I know, I am running them now. They do not give a full 3" of lift without the top plate spacer. More like 2-2.5" with a bullbar or something light up front.

+1

im at the same settings and you need the spacer to get a true 3

might be different on a 1st gen tho.

The Eibachs give 3" of lift for first gens. They are a completely different spring than the 2nd gen ones, which give 1.6".

Let's not contribute to the spreading of false info that has been such an issue on this forum the last few months.

My Eibachs on my 5100's set at 0.85 gave me 2.6" of lift at first with my stock UCA's. After I installed my Light Racing UCA's I ended up at very close to 3"(2.8-2.9"), which is weird, but oh well. I have 23" from my front hub to the wheel well, and my CV boot fins don't touch at all. This is on a short box double cab 4x4 with 6 speed manual. Rides great.

on first gens you suppose to set the billies at 0 and then the coils will give you 3 inches they set not to set it any higher than zero. for first gens the setting are 0,1.75,2.5. not sure what you mean about the bumber i have billies set at 0 with ebiach coils. check my pics out to see what it looks like
