    Who's running these with their Bilstein 5100s? I want to replace my stock coils, but need around 2.5" of lift to clear my 285s....I would go with OME 881 coils with with my Bilstens at 0", I might only get 2"

    im running 880s with 5100s set on the highest setting and i dont have any rubbing with my 285x75x16's...unless i hit a jump and really slam the front end. if that gets you an idea on what you want to do. im thinking about going with eibechs cuz i have heard they will give you up to 3"

    for the eibachs, do you have to get shocks that are longer than stock?

    No, stock length coils are used. The 5100s that the Eibachs are used with are stock length set at the 0 setting.

    so for the 3" Eibach lift springs you do need longer shocks though, right?

    I meant to say stock length shocks are used not stock length coils. Both are true though. We're just talking about the front end right? lol

    I have Eibachs on 5100's set at 0". I added a 1/4 Toytec spacer and ended up with about 2" of lift on the front. I have a Wheeler's 3 leaf AAL in the rear. Tires are 265/70/16

    I have the eibachs and 5100s set at .85 and it sits perfect. the ride is much better that stock IMO. i am very happy with my lift and the quality of the ride.

    Yes! 5100 are a perfect fit for eibachs. Just make sure they are set at the lowest notch of the 3 availavle.
