new billies 5100 w tc uca- should i add eibachs 1.6 or keep stock coils?

Hey there fellas. I've been reading a lot of posts and cannot find a good answer. I just purchased a set of billies 5100 front and rear, tc uca and will be installing this tuesday. My question is should i keep the stock trd sport springs or add eibach 1.6" springs? Its a 2012 dc sport 4x4. Also, with either setup, what is the highest i can go up front without affecting the cb boots, consider i am doing a (1/2") diff drop. This is my dd but need it to be functional off road. Thanks for your input.

Depends on what you want to do here..

5100/eibach @0 = 1.6" of lift
5100/eibach @.85 = 2.5" of lift

You should not exceed .85 setting on the 5100's with the eibachs according to toytec.

5100 with stock springs most people recommend not going over 1.75 (3rd setting on the 5100) for ride comfort although you can do it. My opinion if you want 2.5 of lift than get the eibachs. If you only want around 2" than use the stock springs.

Also a lot if people are against the diff drop on here it seems.. But than again a lot of people have them.

If you plan to go to 3" then that makes sense. I ask the question because the uniballs are noisy as hell and not needed if only going to 1.75" with the 5100s. Performance wise in most cases they are overkill, a lot of folks buy them and rarely even push their trucks to constitute the need of uniballs.
