    I think they would be to low of a shock if you didn't have that strut in there dude... Im thinking you either have to roll with the strut spacer + 5100's or your other option of there c/o's.

    No you don't want to stack your current spacer with 5100's. CV's would be crying for help. You are going to have to go with the fabtech or procomp lift because of the reinforced crossmember. But you could use your stock coils with 5100's and the strut spacer that comes with the kit. second best thing to using there coilovers.
