Bilstein 5100s & OME 881 Coils

So, I found some Billy's and a set of OME 881s at a good deal on Craigslist.

My question is: Will these work together?

My follow up question is: Will I need aftermarket UCA's because of the new coils?

I'm not planning to lift much, if at all, and run 265/75/16 tires.

Thanks for any and all input.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Thanks guys.

Maybe I'll spring for the Billy's and just order some 885s or 886s. Same questions, though. Will that combo work?

Yeah. I don't really want to lift at all, just a better shock.

Will my stock UCAs work with the coils, or will I need aftermarket ones?

if you are wanting a better shock and dont wanna lift....just go with the billys and your stock coils, cause with the 885 or 886 coils...you will get some lift, and without weight in the front of your truck(bull bar/winch/etc)...the ride can get rough.

Great, thanks!

I'm eventually going to add a bumper like an All Pro or Relentless, but I'll probably upgrade to a full OME before that. Thanks for the input!
