    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    i have a little over 2.5 inches of lift with a combo of eibach springs and 5100's at .85. i have 285/70/17 tires with 4.25 backspaced wheels. i only rub in reverse and sharp turning over bumps.

    hope this helps a little..

    It does thanks! I was actually thinking about doing that too but after reading all these threads I might end up getting the OME suspension lift kit
