    anyone running the setup in my subject title? being that i believe the spring rate on the eibach, somehwere in the 600-620range, is more than the 884 and 885 OMEs would the stock bilstein TRD shocks be able to handle them? Would lift height be similar as compared to the springs on 5100's...1.6 to 2" depending on cab/bed style? now w/the tsb done i sit almost 3" higher in the rear which i figure will settle back down to about 2-2.5" in time. looking for a nice solution that gets me a new coil and if need be a new shock, but since the truck is brand new i don't want to go replacing everything just yet.

    If you are going to run an aftermarket spring you are going to want to run an aftermarket shock as well. They stock shocks are not firm enough to control those springs. You will want a set of 5100s
