    I know there is hundreds of posts about this but still... a few questions

    1. How much lift do you get w/ eibach and billies set @ 0?

    2. Would it look funny running 265/70/r17?

    3. Does the eibach affect travel of billies similar to setting them @ higher levels?

    4. I DO NOT have leaf tsb, will the eibachs level me out?

    BTW 07 dcsb

    Sorry for the confusion in question 3. What I meant is does the eibach do any "preload"(sorry newbie) like when you adjust the billies above 0? I prob way off but it seems that with a longer coil you would have less up travel?

    The Eibach springs are stated to lift 1.6", so its like setting the 5100's at 1.75". Your up-travel will stay the same no matter what but the higher you go the less down travel you have from ride height.

    Oh, and don't set the 5100's higher than .85" if you use the eibachs. You will have no down travel and it will ride like shit.

    I have this set up with a double cab and it gave me an inch lift in front. I am sitting very close to level and i have the rear tsb. Just dont forget the spacer for the driver side.. Overall, big improvement over stock ride quality.. no issues with travel

    Thanks for the help everybody. All my questions have been answered! A random what if question did pop into my head though, what would happen if you put after market uca's w/ stock suspension? Just curious

    Is this the amount of lift this 5100 setting (0) consistently gives on a double cab with the Eibach Coils(1")? Is it fair to say 1.6" is the rating for the extended cab? Would love to clarify this. Anybody?:confused:

    I have a double cab and got pretty damn close to the 1.6" of lift that Eibach claims. From what I've read, double cabs consistantly get 1.5" of lift up front with 5100's set at 0.

    ok, great. Thanks for the quick responses.

    0.6" lost is pretty significant if you are putting in a small lift.

    Does anybody know if you need extended brake lines in the rear with an 1.5" aal?

    Anyone? I decided I want to keep my stock rake and am looking at getting the wheelers 1.5" progressive 3 leaf pack. I will have the shorter 5100's in the rear.

    quick question since we are talking about eibach's here. Would it be better to have eibachs with 5100's set at .85 (which would give approx. 2" lift) or the OME 884's and 5100's set at 0 (which would give approx. 2" lift) Would the 5100's set at .85 ride different than the ones set at 0?

    I plan on going with the 1.5" add a leaf and I havent found anywhere that said it was needed to extend your brake lines.

    Why did you extend your brake lines wolfpack? Was it needed?
