6112 need advice

Just bought 6112's I have the option to go with the standard spring for stock weight or the heavier springs rates for 150-200. I think i read somewhere on here that even stock will handle better with the heavier springs. I also like the idea of having the option to add weight in the future. Any feedback? Also if i go with the heavier springs what clip setting should I use to get 2.5'' of lift? For the moment I am using the stock UCA, can I even go 2.5" with stock UCA?

Sorry for all the questions.

I just installed my old 6112 with the 650lbs springs on my buddies 4Runner last weekend. They have zero extra weight and we set it one notch down. It got 2.75Ē and rides great. I have a write up about it on my website with some before and after pics. Home - Off Road Dad the rear has 1.5Ē sway away rear springs with 5160

Be prepared to adjust your spring perches after a couple weeks. Springs settle a fair bit and you are going to lose a lot of that initial ride height.
