    Hmmm. I was referring to jerretx and his cv angles.

    (mobile skin doesn't have quote button)

    I'm just interested because I've got the .85 5100/eibach combo. Everything I've seen and read has said "no no" to setting 5100's over .85 with eibachs. Truck looks great tho. How much lift in back??

    It depends on what you're looking for. I wanted to stiffen up the back with an AAL and, since my truck is mostly on pavement, Eibachs on 5100's set at 0 was a great solution for me to keep the stock rake and compliment the stiffer rear. It handles great on the road and I gained just over 1.6" up front. Plus, I absolutely did not want to deal with blowing through CV boots.

    I've got Eibachs on 5100's at 0, Icon 3-leaf AAL, overall gained about 1.5-2" and maintained the factory rake. So far I'm happy with the results.

    I've got the ULK and I like it a lot. What I like most is it is preassembled which is a plus (no spring compressors to fool with) and it's adjustable. So if you decide you want a little rake you can use the spanner wrenchs to lower the front coils. Just use a cheater bar. Your back will thank you.
