Eibach and 5100 pics.

I've been looking for pics of a second gen access cab with 5100's and eibachs up front also without a tsb or aal. I just got new tires a few months ago and cant really afford to replace them with bigger ones for make an aal not look goofy with small tires. if anyone has stock rear suspension with 5100's set at 0 with eibachs please leave some pics. on a side note i have 265/70/16 tires. thanks

I'm still running Eibachs and an AAL with stock sized tires. Doesn't look bad in my opinion. Here are some pics:

If you scroll up that page a little bit, you can see the same setup with 265/70R17 tires (the stock size tires are Bridgestone Dueler blackwalls, if you see Cooper AT3's, those are the 265/70R17)

Not a good idea. With that much preload you'll be well over 3" of lift so there's a whole bunch of potential issues you could run into including: increased wear on the CV joints and boots, coil binding, UCA's hitting the coils and a very rough ride.

Why would you want to do that, are you trying to get more lift?

something you dont want, the eibach coils do the lifting, to much pressure on the coil can be a bad thing and that puts alot of preload on the coil. Ive heard of peeps doing .85 with eibach coils and getting 3 inches up front

yes on my DCSB 4x4 i just wanna bring it up to a full 3" and with the added weightof the DC.... It was just a thought. Getting the eibach's soon though. So the .85" setting on the 5100's would in theory give me 3"?

I have a DCLB and Billies with OME 885's and I set the billies on .85 but didnt get 3", I set them up one more notch and got my 3" and the CV's look just fine. I think the Eibachs should be close to what the OME 885's are since you set the billies to the same height for 3" of lift. A smaller truck would probably not have to preload past .85

Eibach coils on 5100's set at .85 will get you to around 2.5" of lift. To get to the full 3" of lift, Toytec makes a kit for it that puts a thicker top plate spacer on top of the 5100/Eibach combo. Here's the 3" kit that Toytec sells:

You've got 885's on 5100's set to 1.75?!?! Unless the 885's were horribly worn out, that would get you a lot more lift than you'd want unless you have a drop bracket.

Either way, the Eibachs are a stronger coil than the OME coils and shouldn't be preloaded that much (either should those 885's but that's your problem).

I got them brand new, and wheel the Taco every weekend, wheeled MOAB with them, I dont have a drop bracket and I am sitting level with my All Pro standard leafs, and my CV's are just fine, fins aent even touching. Its weird because so many people say ewhat you said and have been wrong. I dunno if its because I have a DCLB V6 or what but I dont have moe than 3" of lift, thats for sure.

You can safely set the 5100's to .85 with the Eibachs, there's no harm there at all. The top plates don't add preload, they set on top of the top plates.

In that build thread, he would have gotten around 2.5" from the 5100's and Eibachs and then added a 1/2" spacer on the driver's side and 1/4" spacer on the passenger side for some additional lift and to counteract the infamous 'Taco Lean'. I'd be willing to bet he was just shy of the 3" mark with that setup (maybe not because he has a prerunner). The Toytech kit has thicker top plates to get you to 3" of lift, then you'd add the 1/4" spacer on the driver's side to account for the Taco Lean.

That's nuts... Lots of people got 2.5" of lift, even on DCLB with 5100's at 0. I've heard of some people kicking the 5100's up to .85 as the 885's settle but you're the first I've heard running them at 1.75.

I think it's time to invest in a good wal mounted spring compressor so I can play around with the settings when my eibach's come....... Lol I wish I could afford one!
