Eibach Coil with 5100's install question

I know this may sound like a stupid question since so many people on here run this setup, but I have the 5100's on right now set @ .85" and i'm looking into running the Eibach coils with them and not jacking up the 5100's at all to get 1.6" of lift. Do i need to buy anything else besides the coil itself (plates, bushings, etc.) in order to install the coils with the 5100's? Or do they pretty much just bolt in to replace the stock coils?

Also i know some will just suggest moving the 5100's up to the next setting of 1.75", but i ran that on my first gen and with the shocks stiffened up a TON after 1.5 years so i'm trying to avoid that and just have the coils take the weight...

You only need the coils and you can re-use your stock top plates and bushings. Don't forget the lean spacer for the driver's side.

Eibach's should be shipping again the last week of January. This is what toytec told me.

I am going to run mine at 0 and ordered a top plate spacer but will not run unless I have more than a 1/4 of lean.

You are not going to find more than two pictures of the eibachs at 0 as you stated most are running them at .85"

I haven't seen anyone running 883's on a 2nd Gen and I'm not sure as if they fit. 884's will put you around 2" of lift for your double cab.

What is the spacer for? What is the lean your talking about?

when you run aftermarket coils, they don't account for the weight of the driver side. Therefore you need a 1/4" spacer which gives a 1/2" lift to fix the lean.

Now if you want a 3" lift with the 5100's/eibach setup, you'll need to run this spacer setup;

1/2" spacer on DS - ~3/4" Lift
1/4" spacer on PS - 1/2" Lift
