    Default 5100s, springs or no springs?

    When I install my new Bilstein 5100s, shoud I use the stock springs or replace them? What will new springs do the the pu$$ ride I enjoy now? Also, when doing the differential drop kit, Can it be done with just a floor jack to hold it in place while putting the spacers in?

    They are designed to work with the stock, progressive rate coils. You can use an Eibach or something of the sort if you like. It make some getting used to as they are linear rate springs compare to progressive rate street coils.

    When I think of progressive coils, I always thought of ones like these...



    The factory coils hardly look anything like that...


    Have you bought the 5100s already?

    No I haven't bought them yet. Probably after the first of the year for ski season. Need tires and want to go a little bigger.

    I have the adjustable height 5100 setup on top notch on my 2007 DC TRD and it seems to bounce more than my friends 2011 stock DC non-TRD. He does have a 3-1 readylift????????
