Toytec BOSS front coilovers replacement

After 4 yrs and 35k miles of light/moderate wheeling, the front shocks have started leaking. The truck has BOSS 3" suspension kit ( front & rear).

I am not impressed with longevity of BOSS front shocks, so exploring other options. I called Toytec today and was told that replacing front shocks will cost about $600, not including coilovers disassembly and assembly.

If I install OME 881 or King coilovers, would I need top spacers to level the truck?

I have full set of steel skids and sliders installed, but I am running stock bumpers and don't plan on installing aftermarket steel bumpers.

Any advice will be much appreciated.

Not quite the bling of King's, but I just replaced my worn Boss coil-overs with Tundra 6112 kit and couldn't be happier. They were about $650 with new top hats & springs. Ride is great on the street, haven't had a chance to hit the trails yet. Plus I know they will last a lot longer than the Boss coil-overs I took off.

I've got full savage skids, bumper, winch, and sliders with standard travel Kings with 600lb coils. i think i've got about 2.5 inches of lift over stock with 0 adjustment. While expensive they do ride pretty well in the city and are a dream offroad.

I ended up purchasing Toytec coilovers with Bilstein 5100 shocks, which will allow me to maintain 3" lift in the front.
