    From what I've read, "0" or ".85" on the 5100's works fine with the Eibachs. I've got mine set at 0 with no issues.

    Little darty on the hiway due to the caster with the stock UCAs.

    Those of you running at .85, any issues with alignment/vibrations? What was your total lift after they settled?

    My little home made spring compressor would not like squeezing them that much!!:D

    That would be a bunch of preload.

    What type of information are you looking for? There is a lot of info about 5100's set at .85 and Eibach coils on this site. They'll provide about 2.5" of lift on a double cab 4wd but will also give a relatively stiff ride.

    I have a 4 door 4x4 and would like to know the normal ride height would with the 5100's at .85 and the eibach springs. Would this work good with 33's? Should I move to 1.75 with the eibach springs? Are there any issues I should be aware of?
