    I have just ordered 5100's front and rear. Was planning on using the stock coils and set at 2.5 for the front. Any one have experience with this setup as far as ride quality ? Or would you suggest I use the eibach coils on a lower setting. Which will provide the best ride.

    I originally had my 5100's set at 2.5' in the front with stock coils and stock UCA's. That didn't last very long tho as I found that my particular truck was wandering and the alignment was out even after I got an alignment after getting the shocks installed. That being said, you might wanna look into Light Racing UCA's if you wanna run that set up to give you optimum handling and alignment specs.
