    Put my 5100's, Eibach's, AAL, and Toytec 1" shackle. I had it aligned not to long ago and after the lift I had it aligned so Attached is the results of that. Also I got a before hight and after hight with 31" tires on for the front. The 5100's are set to 0 (lowest notch) that is the configuration you would want with this setup.[​IMG]

    I'm just a little stumped. Already got my Toytec AAL and 5100 bushings ordered and still trying to come to a conclusion on the rest.

    I will be getting 5100's all around but I'm not sure which route to go as for the coils.

    I thought I had my mind set on 883's, but then wanting to make sure I get the result I want. Then I keep thinking about Eibach's or 882's. Also lift height longevity comes into play when considering sagging over time.

    Eibachs and 5100s are like PB&J. As are OME shocks and OME coils. But it's doable if you want 882 with 5100s

    From what I have read I would have to agree. Eibach's were designed to be paired with 5100's and OME's were designed to go with nitrochargers. Google to see if you can find anyone who has mismatched.

    Yea I hear you on the designated pairings, but there quite a few people that run OME coils with 5100s and don't have problems. I just can't seem to find an answer for my needs... the coil that will retain it's lift height the longest before sagging? and ride quality with the different stiffness and spring rates.

    I think I've eliminated the 882s. I know the 883s have a 590# spring rate and the Eibachs have a 620# rate. I'm not sure of the free height difference between the two though. But according to the spring rates the Eibachs are stiffer and I don't plan on adding any weight to the front (bumpers, etc.)

    Oh ok. If you were a 4cyl and didn't plan on getting a bumper I was gonna say don't get the Eibachs because you would max out the cv's. I think you would be ok with no extra weight and a v6. Might be a little harsh. I plan on going with Eibachs and wont have a bumper for a while. I'm starting to gather my parts as well.

    Your alignment guy did not do a very good job with the caster setting. Even tho you are still on stock UCAs, he should haave been able to attain +1.0 at the least.

    I'll bet it drives kinda skittish, especially at higher speeds.

    Personally I like the ride the Eibachs give. It's kinda stiff but better than worn out stock springs and shocks that I had on before. I too have heard many guys here on TW running OME coils w/ Bilstein shocks without issues. Both coils have nice longevity from what I've read. I've seen Eibachs and OME coils for sale that have been on trucks for a couple years and they are still holding up nicely.

    Now, today I did read one guy ask a question, if he should switch out his OME coils because they were starting to sagg after 3 or so years. I don't hear this kinda thing often so I would take it with a grain of salt.

    Either way I think you'll be good with either coil.

    Eibachs are coils haha

    5100s are shocks. You can pre load your stock coils with them..

    Better to get a newer beefier coil tho
