eibach srpings? where to buy

I was all set to install my 5100's this weekend and had a sudden change of heart.. I didn't want to compromise my ride comfort so I think I want to get the eibach spring (1.6") with the 5100's set at 0" for now.. Good idea?? where's a good place to buy these coils?? thanks guys

Why would brand new 5100's compromise your ride comfort? If anything brand new shocks should make it better...

I thought that is stiffens the ride quite a bit over stock?? From what Ive read here, the eibach coils will raise the front to 1.6" and with the billies at 0" just makes it a much smoother ride.. I was going to do the 5100s at 1.75 and figured the ride may be a little rough.. Was I wrong?

you are right. with the billys maxed out for the lift you would be stretching out the stock springs making them ride stiff.

go with the new coils man! you could even put the billys at the .85 setting and that would be fine too!

Mine rides WAY better than stock with the 5100's and stock springs set on the 2.5" setting. The springs stay the same length on every setting (0, .85, 1.5, and 2.5) and never get "stretched". The lift is obtained by moving the shock body down (adjusting the collar up). Please correct me if I'm wrong but mine rides awesome!
