    I have te Eibach/5100's set at 0" setup right now, but I think I'm probably going to get less lift than advertised because I have a DC 4x4. So I figured I'd throw on the 1/4" top plate spacer so a little added pick me up. Am I gonna need new longer bolts for my top plate?

    Not for the 1/4" ones. If you do the 1/2" top plates, you do need longer studs.

    Yeah, look at my lift cocktail. 1.6" Eibach coils, 5100's at 0.85", a 1/2" top plate on the driver's side, and a 1/4" top plate on the passenger's side.

    While theoretically over 3" of lift, it is actually only 2.75", sits level, and rides like a dream both on and off road.
