Question Top plate spacer lift on 5100s?

wondering if it would hurt my 5100s if i put toytec front top plate spacer kit on them? i have them set at 0'' with eibach coils which gives about 3 or 3 1/2''. problem is i put a 2'' aal so my rear sits slighty higher this annoys me.
the spacer is 3/4'' lift. and when i install it would i have to compress the the coils again or would it simply slide on top of it?
thanks tw

Yes you have to compress the coils again. I put that set on my OME lift to compensate for the bumper and winch. Another less costly option could be to trim a little off the AALs so the rear doesn't sit so high.

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

There's not much more you can really do in the front to get more lift. Even if you did, you're likely to have more problems with your CVs and/or boots.

Throw a few sand bags in the rear to settle the AAL a bit.

Toytec doesn't recomend using spacers on 5100s...

Yeah man, I wasn't being a smart ass. It's risky to raise the front end any higher because you could damage your CVs, so the next logical solution would be to lower the rear. You can do that by either compressing the suspension using weight, causing it to settle down a little quicker (it will still have some rake, but it'll help) or, as mentioned above, trim the AAL so it doesn't provide as much lift.
