Will skyjacker shocks work with Eibachs?

    I currently have SkyJacker Hyrdro 7000 in the rear (just got them and love them. Its a great ride compared to stock shocks with lift). I am wanting to redo my front lift and want to get eibach coils instead of the strut spacer. I was wondering if there was any skyjacker shocks that work with those coils? I really would like to go with skyjacker shocks and that lifting coil to give me 3 inches of lift. No less of lift than that....thanks!

    There is a reason you can't find anyone running that setup. Stick with OME or Bilstein with OME springs or Bilstein with Eibach springs.

    Well i just figured out that SkyJacker sells a front shock that lifts it 3 inches and you use stock length coils so i plan on getting the shocks and putting OME 881 coils on it for 3 inches of lift.

    You can't use those with 881's. those shocks has the spring perches already there providing the lift and 881's are longer therefore you will be past 3". You need to run stock springs with skyjacker front lift shocks.

    Really I would run 881's with OME Nitros. There is a reason why a lot of people run that setup and also 881's with 5100's. Even Eibach/ToyTec with 5100's.
