5100's set to 0" and 16" Eibach coils question

Another thread here got me thinking and a bit curious..
May be a stupid question but...
I believe the stock coils are 14".
Would 5100's set to 0" and 16" Eibach coils lift the front and not screw up the stock alignment numbers?
If the Eibach does lift,how much?

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Any lift is gonna mess with the alignment. Seems most people can have their truck returned to "Spec." at any lift under 2".

interesting, examining the print out now and caster is shown but no caster numbers "actual" / "before" - guess i got hood-winked for $80 beans. So here's a negative plug for SunTire Corp!

If your at 2.5" lift, Im guessing your Caster is well below 1*....maybe around .6* or so. Honestly, as long as your Toe and camber are set to 0*, your fine.

You will get at least 1.5"'s with the Eibach springs. You will need an alignment done, but there is no need for a dif drop.

I had a 2" lift and felt some vibrations and when I wnet to the eibach's, the truck drove smooth again. Plus with the 2" lift the alignment shop was just able to get my front in spec with the settings max'd out. With the 1.5" lift they had no problem aligning the truck to factory spec.

I would highly recommend these coils if you're only looking for a mild lift.

My truck with Eibach's and stock TRD shocks.
