    the eibachs add 1.6" plus the shock set at .85" = 2.5" the most you would want.

    OK, now I got what ColtsTRD was trying to explain to me, thank you again for the clarification. Basically, that set is pretty much fixed at 2.5" of lift with no more up (lift/raise) adjustment and could only go lower. Sounds like I might be better off in the long run with the "base" 5100's and running the ¼" spacer for cost effectiveness.

    I got confused when I saw, basically, 2 sets of the same shocks only difference I could spot was the spring and spanner adjustability.

    The good thing about the spanner adjusted coil over is that you do not have to remove the shock, compress the coil, and move the clip to adjust them. You can fine tune them on the truck... but you have to pay more for that adjustability.

    After reading this it sounds kinda retarded. Basically, by using the stock spring set at a higher level instead of a more progressive spring @ 0 or .85, the preload on the spring is not letting the shock get full travel for a bit harsher ride. Better ?!:D
