    Hi guys;
    I have a '96 Toyota 4x4 xtra cab 2.7 4cyl 5spd.

    The fromt suspension has Bilstien shocks with threaded bodies(0" to 3") inside Eibach silver coils.The truck is stock with no heavy bumper or winch.
    I would like to get some specs on the Eibach coils that are on my truck.
    The numbers are;
    275596
    1400.250.0550.0S
    The only info I can get from the numbers is they measure 14" and are rated at 550Lbs.
    Does anybody have this setup.Apparently it's an Allpro item.I've contacted them twice but no response.
    My question is;

    If the Bilstien shocks are set at 0" how much lift,over stock, do these coils provide ?
    Thanx for your time and great sight.

    Eibach coils clain a 3'' lift but a lot of ppl tend to get 3.5-3.25.

    Strange that is an Allpro item tho and that they are only 550lb.

    Eibachs are rated 650lb.

    You are also NEVER suppose to have the Billys set to anthing but 0!

    Ya,I thought they were a little light at 550 especially when stock replacements are rated at 660 drivers side and 465 pass. side (Napa).

    JBLAIR---are those V6 trucks ?

    nope, we have the same truck you have except it's a 99. 2.7 ext. cab 5 spd. I had no idea stock replacements were 660 and 465!

    I'll get a pic as soon as I can

    Just installed the Eibach/5100 combo. It gave me just over 3" of lift on the 0 setting.

    The ride is 10000x better than stock! Get the Eibachs, they give you 3" and they are cheap!

    Just stock springs and some 3" blocks. Those are the next things to go.

    Ill be putting a 5 leaf pack and some 1" or 2" shackles to get the 3" i want.

    CV axles have been fine so far. No replacements.

    I put the diff drop in also.
