    i already have a ez lift 3 inch spacer on my truck but i'm lookin at the 5100 adjustable coilovers and i was wonderin if i would have to take the spacer off or would i still be able to have it on there i'm only wanting to set it to maybe 1 or 1.75 to keep it relitively low because i've heard that the bumper i want will push my front end down some.. any imput would be wonderful... thanks:)

    Your better off leaveing the spacer off if useing the 5100 adjustable shocks.

    but i would have to downsize my tires and wheels if i took any lift off my truck... i still rub if it flexes a little... i just dont want to lose any lift or my truck not be level any more if i put the bumper on there... do you know anything about shrockworks bumpers? good quailty or are they cheap made or if they would push the front of my truck down?

    If you want to keep your 3" lift and are getting a bumper, I recomend the OME 886 springs.
