    Eibachs give you 1.6 inches of lift. Add .85 for the 5100's and you'll be sitting between 1.5-3 inches.

    .85 5100's on stock springs will be a little stiffer than stock.

    Get the eibachs and set 5100's to .85. I have it and love it!

    I would assume that you will have a better quality ride with eibachs and 5100's at "0" than stock springs with 5100's at ".85".

    I personally like the ride of the eibachs, with 5100's at ".85". I'd guess that the eibachs would ride even better with 5100's at "0".

    Someone whose actually experienced one or the both of these lifts can hopefully chime in for ya.
