    ok so I went the non traditional route with my lift... I'm going with ome cs047r leafs in the back with bilstein 5100s in the rear... To give just above 2.5" lift.. I'm also putting bilstein 5100 height adjustables in the front with the stock springs at the highest setting to give a steady 2.5" lift for now. Any advice or dos and Donts. Eventually Im going to add the ome aal and new springs

    2.5" up front with the Bilsteins seems to be an unpopular choice due to less than desired performance. Most people don't run more than 1.75" but plenty have done the 2.5" especially if it's temporary.

    It won't be but for a few months until I have the extra money to order springs... Speaking of springs what springs should I go with to get the highest safe height at the 1.75 setting

    OME makes some but they're not "specifically" designed to work with the Bilstein 5100. Eibach makes a spring that IS designed to work with Bilstein 5100 but recommended only up to .85". Go to the suspension section and search some key words and tons of info beyond my knowledge will appear.
