2.5" daystar vs. Bilstein 5100's cranked to 2.5"

I am new to the forum and Ive been searching around alot and can't seem to find an exact answer to my question. I just recieved a 2009 tacoma double cab trd off-road 4x4 for my birthday and I have narrowed my choices of leveling options to two kits. Between the daystar 2.5" lift and Bilsteins cranked to 2.5" which is the best choice? Pros and Cons of both? And also will modifying the truck by leveling it void the warranty?
Thanks

5100's hands down. And no, it won't void your warranty.

Why the 5100's? Is the ride quality better?

Subbed...SChunter1991 what did you end up going with? I am in the same boat...got an 09 TRD Sport LB looking to get some height. If you did lift, what tire size did you go with.
