    Anyone running Bilstien 5100's with Eibach springs on the front. Going to get mine put on next week and want to see what it looks like with factory rear or should I wait till I get rear springs and shocks?

    Cant contribute much here, but let me know if you're anywhere near AL and need some rear shocks lol. I bought the full eibach kit and don't need the new in box never used rear shocks that came with it!

    Depending on the perch that the springs are set at, the front will be lifted up to 2.5". The shock in the rear do not provide lift, you will need to add an add-a-leaf / leaf pack.

    I'll either be going with the ICON 3 leaf kit or OME complete leaf pack later down the road. I'd all probably have the front set on the bottom perch

    The Eibach springs are longer than the OEM springs so you will will be a squatter /tail dragger.

    I originally had the same set up on my 2nd gen, the Wheelers 3 leaf pack was inexpensive and paired up great with the 5100/Eibach.

    I'd double check with Bilstien first. I read in another thread here that the 5100s are a direct factory replacement and are designed to be used with OEM springs only.

    Yup heard the same thing 2A3A5FCC-CF6B-49F9-B16E-47E937F19CE5.jpg 5100’s 1.5” front lift 4th setting. Ride is great. 1.5” rear lift to maintain rake. Hope this helps for looks. A member on here posted an email from Bilstein about pairing with aftermarket springs.

    I ran 5100's with Toytec springs on my 4th gen 4runner without any issues. Wheeler offroad actually suggested the combo.

    Looks good. You have any lift in the back?
    Also are those 285 or 265 tires?

    Thanks - really happy with it. Just the 5100s no added shims, leaf or anything in the rear.

    Looks awesome. Any idea exactly how much lift the 5100s gave you on the bottom setting with the eibach coils?
