Member jerretex did but there isn't a chance in hell I'd do it. They aren't meant to be used that way

What bumper did you put on? I have the same set up and pondered it myself. Have you got a winch as well?

all pro. I thought the eibachs would hold up but i guess I need to step it up to 886 or the toytec coilovers.
Just considered this idea since with coilovers you preload them alot to retain lift which is what the 5100s does also just without the adjustable sleeves.

I would NOT put the 5100's up to 1.75, that's just asking for trouble and it will ride like a dump truck. 886's are also overkill for that light of a bumper, they're designed for the ARB with a winch hanging over the front end. 885's would most likely get you back to 2.5" of lift with the Allpro bumper. 886's might put you over 3" since you don't have enough weight to compress them. Maybe look into a taller top plate like 1/2" on the driver side and 1/4" on the passenger side? There is also a top plate set-up made by Toytech to get the 5100/Eibach set up to a true 3" lift.

I already have top plates in there. AP bumper is lighter than arb but the Eibachs still sagged. Dont really wanna stack another spacer up in there to make up for it. Winch will also be there in the future.
I have double cab so maybe that has something to do with it as my 3" all pro leafs only netted me 2".
Cheapest way i was thinking is 886 but i heard it might destroy the 5100s.
