    I have the 2.0s and wouldn't buy them again. I would probably go with 5100s. 2.0s have the look of and adjustable coilover, but lack the function. To adjust them, you have to remove them and compress the spring. If you have to do all that, what is the point of adjustable coilovers? Might as well save the cash.

    I have had nothing but excellent results with my SAWs, and I have beat the everloving balls out of them. If my sig picture doesn't indicate that, I don't know what will.

    Can you adjust them on the vehicle?

    Can't be harder than having to remove the entire coil over and compress the spring! Let me know if you are interested in doing a competitive swap out to get an honest opinion of how they compare.

    "Good deal" and "best ride" are easy to say, but not easy to do. You typically pay for what you get in that scenario. For most it may be totally fine, but if you really want the best ride possible, then a tuned Fox or King 2.5 coilover in front and 2.0-2.5 R/R rear would be the hot ticket. If you just want to level out the stance of the truck, you can do that without needed aftermarket upper control arms. Feel free to shoot us a message if you have any specific questions

    Some will argue this but you should do this on most adjustable coil-overs to preserve the preload ring. I've had fox 2.5's and now have kings and when you adjust them on the truck it puts some serious stress on things. You can spray them down with PB or WD to get it spinning and not saying I have not done it but the risk is not worth the reward.

    If you think 5100's are as good as a 2.5-3.0 adjustable coil-over setup......:der:

    Oh not, not comparing 5100s to 2.5s or 3.0. I was comparing them to the 2.0s that can't be adjusted on the truck. You have to remove them and compress the springs. At that point you might as well save some money and go with 5100s.
