    How does the ride compare, ome 881's with nitrocharger shocks and a spacer to achieve a 3"lift. Compared to eibachs and 5100's for a 3"lift.

    I have heard that the 881's are smoother and have a lower spring rate, but you need the top plate spacer to get a full 3"lift.

    I lost track thousands of dollars ago.
    You are right the 881's are going to be softer but they won't handle a aftermarket bumper I have the eibachs and love them and I will love them even more when I install my Elite bumper and winch in a month or so.

    Ya that's what I figure, but if you put the spacer on to get the 3" won't that make it possibly ride worse than the eibachs?

    Maybe I really don't know but you are preloading the springs so yes it could. Maybe someone with the 881 and top plate spacer can chime in.
