I have an 07 cc that I just put 5100's and the rough country 3 inch lift on this is the strut Spacer/ uca combo kit. I maxed out the 5100's and achieved the full 5 inches of lift. This thing is up there now! My question is has anyone run this set up and encountered any problems? Everything seems to be fine right now, but this was installed Sunday. Thanks for the feedback and I'll try to post an after pic tomorrow. Unfortunately I don't have a before pic.

You don't want to go above 3" without a bracket lift. You'll be in danger of ruining your CV axles.

Are you 4wd? I know 2wds have some leeway as far as height goes. But never go over 3 inches in a 4x4 with out a bracket lift. Either way bet your going to have some bad cbc. I suggest dropping the 5100s to the middle setting if it's a 2wd and and lowest if it's a 4x4

If your 4wd, you will have many problems, CV axles, CB contact etc...

It is 4wd, I did notice today there has been a slight contact with the coil bucket. The struts were absolutely shot prior to installing the 5100's and lift. So the 5 inches of lift I am measuring, might not be truly accurate. I feel that there was at least an inch of height lost due to the bad struts. I am planning on dropping the 5100's one notch this weekend. I have checked the CV axles and they don't seem to be at bad angles.

Driver side of the front diff won't last long with that much lift and 1200 dollars for a new one sucks

Thanks for the input! I have decided to take them back to the lowest setting as soon as I can get to the shop. Hopefully I haven't damaged the CV's too much!
