    I set my 5100s at 2.5 and i did notice a difference but i want to go higher.
    can i add a 3" spacer and aal? i dont care about the ride and i dont offroad.

    i need something cheap because i need money for tires and wheels too

    you could put the 5100's at 0, an do a 3" spacer lift. The Ride will be rough and harsh though.

    I did the same thing, got a cheap spacer lift and hated the ride, on road, I dont do much offroading. But I quickly started to upgrade and now it rides soo smooth and nice. But yeah! you can do that.

    I would definitely NOT recommend both at the same time... For many of reasons...

    I thaught you could do the 5100's set to 0" of lift and just do a spacer lift? I know that a better way is to just get the OME coils for a 3" lift, that would be alot better ride and quality.

    read my sig.

    But I upgraded to the toytec coilovers and also got the Total Chaos UCA's for a better allignment and little more travel.
    Rear, I got an AAL and a 1" block to have the rear a little bit higher.
