Bilstein lift do I need rear springs

I ordered a 6112/5160 lift kit and just realized it does not come with rear springs. I am looking to lift the front 2.5". I am assuming I will need new springs to lift the rear? I would like to be close to level/slight rear to front rake.

I don't have your lift and cant speak to the height. But I do have a set of rear coils from my Toytech Boss lift. I had these on for 3 months before upgraded to the HD version, to help with all the extra weight I added (RTT, Drawer system, winch etc).New these are $210 plus shipping, asking $100, plus shipping. If interested send me a PM.


Specs from Toytech Website below:
RCC2.0 - Toytec Superflex Rear Coils

These coils are custom made to our specs for a stock like ride and great flex and performance off road.

Provide approximately 2" of rear Lift
10% increase in load capacity/spring rate.
With 8 coil winds these rear coils will handle more load without sagging and still maintain a great ride.
Superflex coils will also flex better than any other coil on the market when paired with extended length shocks.
Sold as a pair

No, you don't need new springs. Just get spacers for the rear coils you already have.

I've been running that same suspension for a year now (21k miles) I installed the Icon 52700 rear springs to match the 2" lift in the rear. They made a HUGE difference supporting a heavier load in the back. Unloaded, the truck has a slight rake. Just for reference the only other mods I made to my suspension are JBA upper control arms and greaseable bushings for the front sway bar. I wouldn't worry about a diff drop but might consider the sway bar spacers. Zero problems so far

Sheer curiosity but what size tires are you using there? They look great.
