Eibach/5100 at .85 vs. ome 885x/billy 5100 at 0

Title says it all which is preferred ome 885x with billy 5100s at 0 or eibachs with billy 5100s at .85? I'm looking to get roughly 2.5" of lift without going the coil spring spacer route......lets hear what you suspension experts have to say

Well I respect your response but there are tons of people on here doing it with zero issues....having said that I might as well go with ome so I don't have to preload? I believe they are similar in price.....if inget the ome coils do I HAVE to get new shocks? If not then there will be a huge price difference

Why 5100s over OME shocks if you get OME coils? Not saying its a bad choice, i am just always curiuos why people go with 5100s if they are getting 885s and not planning on using the adjustability.

By tons I mean I have seen at least half a dozen but thanks for being that guy .....I guess if I go with 885s you are right I wouldn't need the 5100s (adjustable) so what shocks would be alternative? Hopefully I could save some money going from adjustable to non adjustable I don't need anything super special I stay on the road 23 hrs a day

If you are getting the OME coils the best performance would be to match them with OME shocks. People that run OME coils with 5100s usually do so because they bought the 5100s first and later decided it was better to get a lift coil.

I think he was going to preload the toytec/eibachs if he kept the 5100s and put those at
0.85

I still gotta say id rather use a proper length/weight coil as opposed to preloading tho...I've ridden with the toytec adjustable coilovers and even those rode harsher than I would have expected...basically still just preloading the eibachs via threaded shock body.

I in no way have any problem with higher end adjustable kings/icons/ect being cranked up since u can change the valving.....the higher end purpose built adjustable coilovers again, I have no problem with.

The toytec "ultimates" didn't fit into that slot imho tho....it was a macgyver type modification to the shock and may fit the bill for some of us.

Yes if I got the ome with 5100s I would leave them at 0 but gives me future options to set them at .85 if I'd like to......idk what to do I'm leaning towards the ome 885s with a less expensive shock than the 5100s but at $220/pr that's gonna be hard to beat by a marginal number.....what are the 9000s $200/pr? Big deal think I'd rather have the Billy's but idk much about shocks just looking to be led in the right direction

I just wouldn't set them at .85 and preload the OME coils
