    Hey guys, been doing a lot of research on here before I made my first post. I gotta say, I've learned a lot from this site!!

    So, I'm going to be putting Bilstein 5100's on all four corners of my '02. I'm debating whether to set the fronts to 1.75 to level it out or to buy this lift kit: http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/e...0554017438&viewitem=&sspagename=STRK:MEWAX:IT

    The kit seems legit and would do what I want it to do. Would you guys recommend this kit? And if I get it, should I keep my Bilsteins at 0" because of the 2.5" strut extensions? Or would it be better to not run the extensions and put the Bilsteins at 2.5"??

    Hopefully I've made my questions clear, thanks in advance guys!!

    probably better to set them at 2.5 and an aal for the back.

    thats just a spacer lift. the billys are for the back.

    I was looking into AAL just now too. Doesn't the AAL stiffen the ride a little? I know setting the Bilsteins to 2.5" will from what I've read on here. How much does the AAL lift the rear?

    My 02 has 3 leafs packed together and 1 that isn't completely tied in. I know this is a stupid question, but is that considered a 3 or 4 leaf pack?
