    My current suspension in the front is 5100's and eibachs set at .85, with the spacers to give it a full 3" lift. However looking into rentless fabs bumpers or something similar in look I dont want my front end sagging down bad, lower then the rear. But is anyone running 5100's eibachs and a aftermarket bumper with some weight ?

    i believe many people are on here, Relentless fab makes aluminum plate bumpers as well if you're worried about weight.

    You should be good man, the eibach springs are 620lb springs. Off Toytecs website: "620LB coils will support additional weight without sagging." I also have a TG front bumper on my truck and it didn't sag much, I have a first gen though.
