Ride quality...or lack of?

I am looking at installing Bilstein 5100's on the front of my son's
'02 Taco extended cab 4X4. I am looking for opinions on the
ride quality if I set them at the 2.5" max lift. I am guessing the springs
will be compressed approximately 1.5" more than they are on the
stock struts to get the additional lift.
Will the ride be annoyingly harsh as compared to a worn 125,000 mile stock setup?
