    I've searched a bit but couldnt find the info I needed.
    Ive got my billies ready to go but instead of setting them at 2.5, I have decided to get eibach springs for the ride quality.

    I know that 2nd gen people set the billies at .85 with the coils, but what do us 1st gens set them at? I'm guessing its the 1" setting?

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    I set mine at 0 and got 3 1/4" of lift from stock.

    Yea I actually just saw your build page, and thats exactly what I'm goign for. Do you remember what kind of Eibach coils you got? I would love to get the same amount of lift you got with billies set at 0:drool:. Did you get them from Toytec?

    Awesome thanks man, I'm going to order those coils. I imagine the ride is much better with them compared to what I planned on doing, just setting the shocks to 2.5.
    Also, did you get the 1.5 AAL or the 2"?

    I got the 2" but my ass end is sitting low it might be because I have a camper shell.
