    You should be able to use both the 885s and the Eibachs with the 5100s. I dont think the spring rates are that much different. I think the 885s are a little longer/taller, but the 5100s should handle it. Youre definitely not supposed to have the bilsteins set at anything other than "0" with the 885s, but I think its OK to set them t .85 with the Eibachs.

    I'm gong to be doing Eibachs and 5100s very soon. I do not want more than 2" of lift right now.
