Question Billies 5100's on a fabtech 6" ride quality

I installed a 6" fabtech lift on my 05 sport 4wd little less than 2 months ago I
Very pumped on how well the front end soaks bumps and dips in the road but it almost seems a little too spongy for me. By putting 5100's up front at 1.75 be too much adjustment or would I be better off setting them at .85?

I am not 100% sure on this... But the 5100's aren't rated for a 6" lift. They can only be used with a 3" lift. They are not long enough.

If you want a better ride and have the bread. Get some King Off-Road coilovers for 6" lift and new rear leaf pack with better valved shocks.
