    hello so im looking at piecing a lift to together. so far for front im aiming for 5100 set at 1.75 with either eibach or ome 885s for the front. my questions with the rear i wanna spend the extra cash to get ome dakkars. but im lost on the shocks to get since the 5100 are 0-1" and the 5150 are 3-4". am i save to get the 3-4" with the 2.5" dakkars?

    Get the OME rear shocks...they are designed to go with the Dakars...it's worth the extra $35.

    You can't run the eibach or OME coils with the bilsteins set at 1.75". They really shouldn't be set at anything other that the 0"/stock height setting with those coil springs.

    No free shipping on dakars from DSM, just a heads up. Cheaper to buy them from your local 4wp ( was for me anyway ) shipping killed the deal for me.
