I had the reservoir 2.0 shocks and there were really nice. The remote reservoir ones allow you to adjust the dampening with a dial without any tools. Great for quickly tuning when changing terrain.

I have the WE's non-resi 2.5's front and rear on my truck and I love them.

If you do get them, get aftermarket UCA's as suggested with any other lift

It'll fuck with the CV geometry. Leave it under 3" unless you want to replace CVs on a yearly basis.

You truck will ride like trash with that much lift. Lift around 2.5" so you still have some droop in the suspension so the whole truck doesn't drop down when you hit potholes.

If you want more lift beyond that, go with the spindles as you already mentioned.

If your going to get spindles just set them for no lift and let the spindle lift you up

Yeah I'm running the WE 2.5 non-res coilovers in the front and allpro 3" leafs in the rear with 5100s. I love em. No problems yet. And the more you crank the coilovers down and compress the spring the stiffer ride you'll have.

I think anything over 3" it's probably best to replace them. Especially if your gonna be flexing a lot.
