    So here we go, I'm not on a king or fox budget, but Im going to keep my back stock maybe with 5100s to replace stock cause I'm at 96k on them, but I want the front at most an inch higher, I like the look, so what should I get for the front, I'm running 2" spacers right now and I want to offroad a little but 75% is onroad what should I get? I found a guy selling camburg 2.5s for 550 used with about 7k on them, downsouthmotorsports said that its worth getting but the fact they are used and I don't know the owner or past owners makes me nervous about getting them, sorry it's long but that's the situation I'm in, thanks for the input

    Get em and re-build them when you can save up a little more......or learn to re-build yourself for cheaper!

    5100's set at .85 or 1.75" would be you cheaper option!

    I wouldn't even know where to start on how to rebuild, but billies at .85 have always been an option

    5100 at .85 was perfect with my stock rear when i had it that way. Let me know if you need fronts or rears, I still have them in the garage. PM me if interested.

    ^ That being said, I really love my coilovers for off road but since your not a ton off road it wont really matter.

    So did it sit even? Cause I have 2" spacers and it is maybe a half inch higher in the front

    Stock rear is 1.5" higher than front....usually!

    You'll be fine at .85!

    I'm confused OP... do you want the front 1" higher than you have it now (i.e. 3" total), or 1" higher than stock? Cause if you want 3" total, Billies plus spacers is not a good option.

    No I want to get rid of the spacers completely and just have a coil over but it sounds like it will be level but yeah wouldn't I need 2.5" lift in the front to make it an 1" higher then the rear?
