    I'm getting new Toytec silver coils installed in the morning and I need some quick help! I currently have 5100s @ 1.75. Toytec suggested using their eibach coils for a 3" lift with 5100s set @ .85. I realize it adds up to 2.45. However, another guy at Toytec said keep them at 1.75. Who is right? I sent Toytec and email so I am hoping they reply before I get to the shop. Does anyone have this setup that can tell me if .85 with the coils actually raises the truck more like 3" since they're stiffer coils or something?

    From everything I read you do not want to run the Bilsteins above .85 when paired with lift springs.

    I'm assuming you meant coils? I saw on the Billy description on toytec that they shouldn't be coupled with spacers/coils as well... Which is why I wasn't sure why he said keep them @ 1.75

    No....1.75 is to much. I would leave them at .85.
