Question Want a firmer ride with a slight lift, shock valving

I have a 06 DC 4x4 OR , it is a daily driver that was bought to haul material and drive in the snow.

So what I am looking for as my goal is to put on some 265/75/16 once my current revo's are shot, I know they can fit at stock height. I would like to raise the front about a 1" to 1.5" and try and get the TSB or AAL for the rear since it would be nice to haul the advertised capacity with not riding the bump stops.

I would also like for it to be a but firmer for cornering. I will likely put on a TRD sport sway bar since it supposed to be larger and a aftermarket piece for the rear.

So I could for the typical route of

5100 in the front at .85 and pickup some sport springs for the higher spring rate. EDIT, maybe I read wrong as to what OE coil specs are. Anyone know for sure between sport and OR, want the firmer of the two.

5100 set at 0 with Eibach's

or setup and go with

Fox or Icon coilover with any thing I can dream up.

Anyone willing to comment if the handling of their truck improved with the options listed above. I tried searching and most on here are into larger lifts and flex for off roading, not hating on you guys just not much of it in my area If I lift mine a bunch and put on sliders and other pieces I am just going to be a poser, just keeping in real.

I have an extended warranty and some leverage see how it goes. My truck is pretty weak about back. If not that is why I stated AAL since as you stated are not standing behind the problem they know of.

The sport springs as you mentioned are not progressive and are 20-30 lbs higher.

I have not had the truck all that long so I am torn to drop a bunch into it or just go cheap.

On a previous vehicle I had some nice coil overs that were height adjustable and 2 way adjustable valving they were really nice, could make it ride like a old cadillac or loosen your teeth fillings. Once I figured the best setting for my taste I never played with them anymore.

PSU Taco85 Thanks for the insight.

Can you comment on how a stock truck ride (sport/OR) compares to a 5100/eibach setup?

If I have to I will stay at stock height it thats what I need to do in order to keep it to handle better.
