    not really combining it's kinda the same as the Toytec lift just without the new springs and should be cheaper.

    How do you figure setting the Bilstein 5100 at .85 and a 1/2" top plate spacer will give you 3" of lift?

    The Bilstein 5100 has a 2.5" perch setting that is designed to give you 2.5" lift with stock coils.

    Unless you get aftermarket upper control arms, going higher than 2.5" lift is not recommended.

    I could have sworn I saw eibachs in that paragraph somewhere. Eibachs + bilsteins @ 85 + 1/4" spacer = 3" front lift (respectively) or you could do OME coils and 1/4" spacer for 3" front lift, you might have cv issues though. Also you'll might need aftermarket UCAs for alignment, I would just go with 2.5" front lift, it gives your cv's a better angle/ less wear & tear and the alignment is a hit or miss so you might not need UCAs.

    No. Absolutely not if your spacer is on top of the coil assembly. This is as hard as a fact as can be. The only improvement will be if your current spacer makes your shocks compress to max before uptravel stops. 2.5" setting on 5100 is very rough. The spacer feels stock.

    If your spacer is a preload spacer the only difference is the 5100 shock valving. 5100 acts asa preload spacer.
