    Looking at this setup 887 and 5100 in the front with progressive aal in the back.
    Anyone know the max tire size we can run? Currently the rims I've selected are a -12 offset with 4.5 backspace.
    Hoping to fit 265/70/18

    Yes definitely nothing wrong with a minimal lift. I’m actually contemplating on getting the same setup but with 885 instead.

    I had a RC 3'' lift on my AC 2.7 running 33s but the 4 banger didn't like the 33s. I now have 5100s all around w/885s and HS 3Leaf aal. This set up gave me 2'' up front and 1 1/2'' in the rear.

    I believe the vibration will happen in any size lift from what I read. Its better to just install the ECGS bushing while everything is apart and be done with it. The reassurance is a lot more comforting than crossing our fingers hoping.

    Yep.

    Some people are even developing the vibration with no lift, further evidence the application and design of the needle bearing is suspect.

    $60 for the bushing, $10 for seals, about $240 for the average shop to do the install.

    What are you afraid of?

    Hey guys, about to lift my off-road. Temporarily I’m using 5100 with 888 springs front until 6112 are back in stock; 5160 rear with aal. For the front should I set it at notch 1 to achieve 3” or at 0?

    Thanks fellas

    I achieved 2 7/8” using 887’s on setting 0.
    I’d set it on setting 0 and run with it. Plus, you said it was temporary anyways.

    Yes it is temp but I wanted to be sure so I don’t have to mess around and do it right on the first install to achieve 3”.

    All trucks and springs are different resulting in different setting heights even when using the same springs so it's hard to say.

    Besides, how critical is a fraction of an inch on a temp install anyway?

    You are right but my OCD will not be happy.

    OCD implies you're going to measure a couple times front, back and side to side prior to and after driving.

    Are you really OCD or just a PITA?
