    One, Eibachs for first gens lift 3". Two, first gen Billies only have 3 settings. There is no .85 setting.

    OP, you need the bottom setting (stock)

    Like he said, the eibach/toytec coils give 3" of lift on 1st gens (2nd gens get 1.6"). You might have been looking at 2nd gen info as far as lift height.

    Use the bottom setting, anything higher will put too much stress on your UCAs and your ride will turn to crap. I had mine accidently set at the full 2.5" on top of the coils, and the ride was ridiculous.

    Jeezus, if this kid starts one more thread about what settings to use I'm gonna melt down, I think everyone who responded has told him the same thing (set the 5100's to 0 w/Eibachs for 3")

    "Yeah but what do I set them at for a 3" lift?"

    set the 5100's at 0 for the Eibach springs ....

    "Yeah but I want a 3" lift what do I set the 5100's at for 3" ?"

    and around &'round we go.......

    Forget about shocks & springs & use that 3" spacer you wanted to in the first place, your not ready for a real suspension lift...:facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm::facepalm:
