New to lifts

Hey guys I want to put a lift om my truck with the following lift setup. I have a 2003 Xtra Cab 4wd V6-3.4. I bought my truck in 2003 and have been the original owner. My rear springs are flat so I figured should go ahead and replace some suspension components. I have never performed a swap into a lift so I am new to this. Any help would be greatly appreciated. I want to make sure I order all the things I will need to perform this setup!

++Bilstein 5100 Series Ride Height Adjustable w/5125 Series Rears 95.5-2004 (pair front/rear)

++Toytec/Eibach front coil lift springs

++Rear ToyTec Add-A-Leafs

As always thank you guys out there in Yota land for you advice!!!

Your good to go with your set up there. Just make sure with the eibach coils on the 5100's that you set them to 0 because that will give you 3" of lift with those coils on the shocks at the 0 setting.

A single AAL creates a harsher ride, and is hard on the existing leaf pack. A better way to go is a progressive (3-leaf) AAL pack. But I don't think Toytec offers those.

No Toytec does not offer those. What I did was I got the Toytec ultimate lift kit with the 2" AAL in the rear and then when I can drop the coin on a new set of leafs. It gives you your best alternative for the price for the rear lift until you want to spend the money and buy new leaf packs. Just my 2 cents.
