Bilstein 5100/ eibach springs OR Eibach pro truck lift system?

As the title states, I Am TORN!! I’ve heard and read nothing but good about bilstein and lots of it!! And I thought I was sold, until I saw the complete eibach kit for only about $150 more... now my initial plan was to get the bilstein 5100 all around with the eibach pro springs that way if I ever wanted to lift even more I can notch up front and maybe add spacer in rear.. but now I’m looking into the complete eibach kit... there doesn’t seem to be too much info on this kit.. Is there something I’m missing ? Have you guys ran this or the bilstein eibach combo? Is it worth the extra $150? My goal is a slight lift , while still
Maintain a nice ride that’s not harsh!
Oh and one more thing the eibach kit is made specifically for the 5th gen ... so that’s a plus I assume!

I like mine.

Sounds right to me for two reasons:

1/Newer, more sophisticated valving design
2/ Full combo: shocks matched to springs. If I were to get Dobs springs, I would get Dobs shocks, too. They are plenty good enough. In fact, I would rather have those than 5100s.

The Eibach shocks have different lift height settings....... just like Bilstein 5100's.

The Eibachs ride better than Bilstein 5100's IMO. I think they are worth the extra price tag.

I'd say get it all from one place, go for Eibach. Then you'll get their full support if you need help in the future.

Thank you for the kind words all. We have spent a lot of time fine tuning these kits to hit the mark for the masses.
@T4R416 be sure to post pics when you're done with the install!

Will do..I also was told that these are adjustable fronts? So like the 5100s? But the kit is advertised 2.5 front snd 1 rear..? Assuming set at a certain perch to achieve this...?

It's a 2.75" lift if you buy the kit, which comes with front and rear shocks and front and rear lift coils.

However, you can just buy the front adjustable shocks and use your stock coils to adjust your lift height anywhere from 0" up to 2.5".......just like a Bilstein 5100.

Yes.

Just make sure the spring perch is at the lowest setting and with the coils in the kit, you will be sitting at 2.75" in front.

I just put 5100s on my truck along with dobinson springs. They both are unreal. I would highly recommend this setup!
