    I'm running into a few questions while putting my shopping list together for my lift. I was going to go with OME 885's with 5100's but then I saw the "READ THIS" thread and was thrown off.

    "5100's (But please take note NO One recommends it to be used in conjunction with after market coils) This may result in damage of your suspension components. "

    Is it suggesting that I use my stock coils?

    With this setup am I missing any smaller parts that I need to add to me list?

    Also if I don't install an AAL in the rear would that am I robbing myself of increased performance or is that something I could do down the line?

    I understand there is probably not one right answer or there would only be a few threads on 3" lifts, but any help you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

    It is saying that you should not use the Bilstein 5100's to preload aftermarket coils, thus giving you over 3" of lift.

    People use them with the Eibach coils (1.6") with no issues, but with 885's, definately keep the billys at zero .

    And if you don't install an AAL, you will be nose-high with the 885's up front.
