    Can you do like a 885 OME coil with 5100's and a 2 inch Spacer? The 5100's would have to be on a stock setting. I haven't heard of this being done but I haven't heard of anyone not doing it. I know that the OME Coils use a spacer but its pretty small.

    People have done it with regular shocks and it's NOT a good idea.

    An OME coil (or any LIFT coil) plus a spacer puts sooo much load on the coil that people have blown out the welds on the bottom coil support on the shock.

    Why would you put a spacer in with a 5100? The 5100's are adjustable ...so you can adjust the height without needing to put a spacer in.

    It was more just curiosity then anything. Thanks for the reply.
