    I've got eibachs and 5100's at .85 with the driver side lean spacer.

    Stock ucAs currently.

    I'd like to get a full 3 inches out of this lift. From what I have read, and I just want to confirm, I can:

    Put the driver side lean spacer on the passenger side and get ??inch spacer for the driver side?

    I plan on getting new uCAs with this.

    Also would this setup allow for a plate style bumper such as Relentless aluminum (55lbs) is what I'm interested in...

    Thanks!

    I wouldn't stack more spacers on top- you already have the taco lean spacer.

    are you not already getting 3"?

    the eibach coils should let you run the aluminum bumper without a problem

    Toytec makes a thicker top plate specifically for the application you described but if you use a 1/2" spacer on the driver's side and 1/4" on the passenger side, you'll be pretty damn close to 3" (just under by about 1/4 - 3/8"). Check out Toytec's website for the top plate they made specifically for this application.

    A plate bumper will sag the set up some unless it's aluminum but the Eibachs will support weight, they're a strong coil. If you want to run 3" of lift with a heavy plate bumper, this might not be the best set-up for you.

    Perfect. That's what I needed to hear.

    .5inch spacer on driver side and .25inch spacer on passenger side. (no stacking)

    And the aluminum bumpers are what I am looking into. I understand id have to do something different with the 100+ lbs bumpers.

    Thanks again
