    1.5" Eibach springs, 1.5" Icon add a leaf, Bilstein 5100 shocks, 1" rear blocks.
    I would just get higher springs. Mine is on the bottom notch and after settling it's only 1.25" higher.

    Best looking wheels I’ve seen on this site in weeks. Nice choice.

    I asked what I'd gain with the set up and they said around 2.5". I believe he ment that as In on the lowest perch. And not to use the second cause those shocks are made for standard springs. I'm waiting for the clarification.

    They told me that it would be 2.5-2.75" on the bottom perch.

    Dude thanks for getting this info squared away! So much convoluted bs on these post sometimes. Can never get a straight answer.

    I dont think there is any way you will get 2.5 on the bottom setting. Wither bilstein 5100 and eibach shocks, I got 2 barely.

    I know with ome coils you shouldn’t go above the first notch on 5100’s. Is that different for some reason with the Eibach springs? I’m wanting to regain some sag I got from my 888’s and am either going 886 or Eibach if I can.

    I think 2nd notch is ok. 3rd notch max.

    That just what they told me. Asked them cause I know they sell and install it as a kit.

    It will look sick. I’m running similar lift with 265’s IMO great tire size for a subtle lift.
