    Some stuff. Not a lot, just some.
    The 5100's are designed for stock coil use and lift coil use. You don't have to buy lift coils if you don't want to. They have 3 settings 0" (stock), 1.25", and 2.5". If you want to use lift coils, leave the spring perch at the 0" setting.

    If you leave the bilstein on setting 0" and run a longer coil, your ride will be smoother than just raising the setting to 2.5".
