another lift question

hi all. my bro has a 3rd gen and wanting to lift it since its over 200k miles on original shocks/springs. I have a 4th gen that I lifted myself with jba high caster, wheelers t1/t12 springs on 5100's with fronts on the second perch, it has a slight rake and rides pretty good imo.

we will probably do a suspension upgrade (upper/lower bj, tie rods, sway links) except for uca/lca to stay in his budget. for his application, I was thinking of the following since he will be taking it on hunting/fishing/camping trips for the added weight but most of the time will be empty and daily driven....please chime in on thoughts or other recommendations:

1. bilstein 5100 all around and front at the lowest perch
2. front- wheelers t1 springs (made by eibach) 620lb rating stated should add up to 3" lift
3. rear- OME 906 should add 2"

thanks.

I've got 5100s all around. OME 890s (3" coil) in the back and (I think) stock coils up front on a higher perch. don't know which perch as I just got the truck recently and just did the 890s first to fix the rear sag it had.

I've got eibach 577lb springs to go up front whenever I have time, but for now the ride is just fine and I've got about 1" of rake. Hard to really even notice it. The new springs on the first or second perch should level it out.

From what I've heard those 620lb coils are just too stiff if you don't have any extra weight up front.

might just be me but it feels fine to me on my 4th gen, no extra weight. I guess I prefer the stiffness over the bounciness of the stock suspension my 4th gen. can always upgrade to bumper and/or winch in the future. it actually feels good going over a small railroad track hill at 40+mph, not that much bounce.

If you're planning on getting 3" in the front you'll probably have a noticeably saggy rear. Those 906 are short and and I've read they sag easy. I'd reccomend 890 or 891 OME springs.
