Who's running LC springs and Bilstein 5100 3rd gen shocks in the rear?

Okay, I know this topic is has been covered before but I can't find a thread about it.

I have some LC 7.5/8 wrap springs that I want to use with my BS 5100 3rd gen specific (24-249966) rear shocks. I'm currently pairing the 5100 rears with OME 906 but with added weight from camping/wheeling gear, the rear sags. Plus I want to get an aftermarket rear bumper with dual swing outs in the future.

The BS 5100 is meant for 0-2" of lift but the LC springs gives around 4" from what I've read.

Is any running pairing the LC 7.5/8 wrap springs with BS 5100? Any issues? Would rather not spending money on another shock.

You'll need longer shocks for sure. Sonoran Steel sells a lift with 7.5 wrap land cruiser coils and he offers it with tokico black shocks or 4th gen 4runner rear shocks. 1996-2002 - Classic System 1.2 [96-02_complete] - $1,575.15 : Sonoran Steel Fabrication LLC, Toyota Truck Parts

These are the 4th gen 4Runner shocks he offers it with for the rear: Bilstein 5100 Rear Shock Set for 2003+ 4Runner, 2007+ FJ Cruiser (33-187174 x2)
14.91 collapsed and 23.5 extended compared to 12.91 collapsed and 20.79 extended with your current shocks.

They will be too short.
Not sure if you will damage anything but you will not have any down travel.

I run the FJ/4th gen rear 5100 they are great.

Do you have any problems with the compressed length being too long?

So far I have not.. or have not noticed anything.
I run extended durobump bumpstops which are designed to be ran with these length shocks. I asked the owner guy before getting the shocks.

FYI I run LC 8 wraps if it makes a difference

Damn...was hoping it would work since I just installed it today.

Oh well, time to shop for some 4th gen shocks.

I too had those bilsteins when it was stock height and I liked them so much that I wanted to get the same ones when I lifted it. I ended up going with the superflex coils and came across long travel 5100s for up to 4Ē lift and it is basically a 4th gen bilstein shock. So thatís what I went with and it feels great

Here's a pic comparing the LC 7.5 (Double Purple light blue White)/8 (Purple Green White) wrap I just installed today with the OME 906 I had on.

The LC's were from a '91 FZJ80. The OME had about two years on them.

I got about 2.5" increase with the LC's on both sides.
