5100's with stock coils

Put a lift on my truck about a year ago(5100's all around, eibach coil springs, and toytec aal), and the ride has been extremely stiff. Was out on the trail yesterday and was thinkin about swappin out the eibachs back to stock coils for a little bit better flexin and a softer ride. Was just wonderin about anybody else who is runnin this set-up and how it works on and off road. Also am I going to be losing any lift(the 5100's are set at 0).

Stock coils would bring you back down to stock height. You will lose 3" of lift. Do you have your sway bar still connected? The sway bar is worthless for off roading and makes it seem like your suspension is stiffer, because it can't flex.

I'm running 5100's at 1.75 with stock coils and I'm very pleased with the ride both on-road and off. I also have 5100's in the rear with the TSB springs. I'm happy with the front ride, but the rear springs are crap that I'm looking to replace at some point.
