I went into 4wheel parts today to ask if they would install my new suspension that I ordered online. They thought about it and after asking what I was getting they said no. Their reason...
He said that the Bilstein 5100 adjustable isn't long enough to be paired with the EIBACH 3" lift coil spring. The reason he gave was that "no matter where you set the height of the Bilstein that it would be preloaded. Basically he was telling me that the Bilstein 5100 adjustable and the 3"lift EIBACH coil spring is not a good pair. I told him that I've read plenty people who have this set up and are happy with it.
Can anyone tell me for sure if the 2 will work together. If not can you explain why? And if they will work fine, can you explain why?
My other thought was, since 4 wheel parts works mostly on jeeps, and how some jeeps have the shock and spring separate. Maybe he thought that was the same scenario on my truck. I'm not sure just taking a guess.
If you can let me know what you think!
Thanks for the help!
