    I'm bored on a Sunday and started wondering if it could be done and if anyone on here has done it. I searched and got nothing. Anywaaay:

    I've got an '01 with Bilstein 5100's set at 0" paired with Eibach springs. Can a spacer lift be added with that or is that bad news? In the rear, I've got the ToyTec AAL. How would I level out the rear end if a spacer lift was added? Add another leaf lol?

    This isn't really something I'm dead-set on doing...like I said, I'm bored and my mind has begun to wander:D

    it'd be stupid to do

    if you're running eibachs up front without any armor, you're already at 3"; any more than that and you'll be putting a shit ton of stress on your suspension

    What kind of stress is it putting on the suspension? I assume the angles on the arms would be stressed a lot, but would there be actual stress on the shock or spring?

    Again, this is all theoretical. I don't plan on doing this...just curious

    Bump? Been wondering the same thing and I haven't found anything on here about it. Seen one guy on instagram with new coil springs plus a 2" spacer up front with no problems.

    It's a bad idea lol. I did some more research and, from what I gathered, if you hit a pothole or bump or anything, you risk shattering a UCA. 3" is about as high as you can go without replacing UCA's.
