    ok guys. so my spindles are ordered, and i have the billy 5100's sitting in the garage. now i need to order coil springs. i was originally going to order the eibachs but now im having doubts. im not sure if ill gain too much lift from them. im trying to get around 5" up front. any ideas on springs i could use or should i just go with the eibachs?

    I can set you up with some OME coils. You can combine those with a low setting on your 5100s or just use the 5100s with your factory springs to lift 2.5"

    ^wrong. He said he has spindles, those give 3.5" for tc or 4" for camburg. Therfore so him to have no travel he would be pushing what like 7-8" of lift for that to happen.

    To the op with my spindles I am running eibachs with the collars and 5100. If you can't find that or don't want adjustable coilovers like that just set the 5100's at the .85" setting and you'll be golden. Even if you wanted to add another 1"or so get the top plate spacer kit from toytec that goes on top of your coilover assembly. With that you will be sitting around 5.5-6".

    Edit: just a fyi the springs that give 1.5" eibach sells is different than the ones in the setup with the collars. I think toytec sells the spring with collar without the shock, then just use your current top plate

    Just the springs off their coilovers. The springs in their coilover setup are flat at the bottom and don't taperlike the lift ones they sell by themselves. So I have the flat coils which I use with the collars, which gives me adjustability. So the setup I got now I can go from 4" with zero lift or 7" up front with the coilovers cranked to 3". The regular eibach springs give 1.5" from the get go.

    You could also just use your stock springs with the 5100's and preload them to the .85" setting and sit close to 5". I think it would be less than that so you could get a 1/4" top plate spacer and be sitting around 5.25" or pretty close

    Problem is that I don't have the stock coils anymore. Toytec says the ome 881s are pretty much the same as stock. So I may go that rte with the coils and a 1/4" spacer on the drivers side and the shocks set at 0.85. Anyone have any advice on these coils?

    I'm pretty sure I got the stock spring I could sell you if you want
