    Hey guys I have a quick one to ask. I currently am running 5100 adjustables up front with 885 coils. My question is if they are adjustable to 3" then why can we only go .85? I feel like I am missing something. I am just trying to get as much lift as possible.

    How is the ride with 885's and them set at .85? Full 3"s of lift? And can we get some pictures of your truck? The one in your avatar looks:drool:

    The 885's will almost give you the 3" of lift by themselves, they just require a small spacer to reach the full 3". Adding preload from the 5100's will give you over 3.5" of lift and will not be possible to install on the truck.

    I will post some up as soon as I get home. The ride is OK. I had some major vibrations in the steering wheel and I am currently studying that now on this forum. But other than that I am pretty happy. I am looking into a new set of adjustable coilover's but unsure of who i want to go with.

    TonkaToyTaco: How does the suck of the ride increase? Because of the angle of UCA's and CV's?

    Because an 885 is a 2" lift coil already. Trying to raise your setting on the 5100 to the 3" mark would give you 5" (approximately) of lift. That would exceed the capabilities of the Billy and your balljoint and CV angles would suffer.

    I know a guy who put 885 with 5100 set at 2.5 and it blew out the shock when he went over a speed bump.
