    I am looking for anyone running 285s with bilstein 5100s set at .85 paired with eibach coils. Pics would be great as well as any isssues you have or had such as rubbing or trimming needs. Thanks.

    PM BirdTRD. I have beat him up with that issue. He has that setup with the 0.5" spacer driver side and 0.25 on passenger side. He has new UCAs as well, with spidertrax.

    Sorry, the title of the thread says 285, not 255.

    And yeah, that's a 3" lift. I pointed it out as a minimum for what you'd need to do. Obviously, you can expect to do *more* than that if you're lifting *less* than that.

    Sorry if you don't find that info helpful. I'll gladly give you a refund. ;-)

    That sucks...I'm in Canada, and drive on gravel, and snow in the winter, so I have to have the front mudflaps. Guess I'll never be able to have 285's :( My buddy put 285's on his along with the removed flap, and only a month later the paint behind the front wheel well is all dinged up.
