    What is the lift height with doing this?? and is it recommended to get the 1/4" and 1/2" spacer instead?

    I recieved 1.6" from this lift. I used a 1/4 " spacer on the drivers side to balance out the infamous drivers side lean. Using a 1/2 inch spacer(driver) and a 1/4" spacer (passsenger) will just give extra lift

    ok so 1.6 without (1) 1/4" driver side spacer and if you put the spacer roughly 1.75".

    Does anyone know how much lift the toytec/eibach coilver would produce at the lowest setting ...I know it comes preset to 3" lift which is the .85 setting iam assuming the the 0 setting would give about 2.25" thanks for any responses

    I am not sure of what you are asking. I think you are confusing your kits. The Eibach springs are designed to be used with Bilstein 5100 adjustable shocks. At the lowest of the four settings on the shock, you should recieve 1.6" lift. The Toytec adjustable front coilovers are a completely different kit. They apparently come preset to give you 2.5" lift. They come alredy assembled with Bilstein 5100 shocks. My understanding is that the spring preload in this kit can be adjusted with spanner wrenches that allow you to dial in a lift anywhere in the range if 1.5-3". The settings are not fixed to 4 heights like the Eibach/5100 kit.

    1/4" top plate spacer will get you about 1/2" of lift , so just about 2 1/8 - 2 1/4"

    Yes they make two coilover kits one u can adjust with a wrench and the other which is on toytecs website for 599.00 is preset to 3"s but you can change it to 2.25 by setting the 5100's to 0.....and yes they also sell an adjustable kit ...but the 599.00 kit is already preassembled with a billet top place spacer instead of the 1/4 or 1/2" spacer thats why its a little more $.

    If i can get 2ish with the 5100 's set to 0 and eibachs with only the driver side 1/4" spacer thats perfect for me

    If you want 2ish inch lift you will need to go with a 1/2" top plate spacer on the drivers side and a 1/4" on pass side.

    The reason you see the 1/4" often on the drivers is to adjust for the weight of gas, battery and driver.

    All factory front coil springs are specifically made and marked for driver and passenger side to adjust for the weight difference on the truck. Aftermarket springs are identical for both sides that is why the "lean spacer" is used.
