Help deciding how to level my truck

I've got an 06 tacoma 4x4 and I just put a big ARB deluxe winch bull bar on the front that has sagged the front end down about 2". I was wondering the best way to level it out so I have have the wheel travel that I used to. I was going to just put a 2" spacer on the front, but I'm worried about my coils losing their strength. I've heard about those 5100's, but I'm not quite sure if they're the right choice. Anybody have any ideas?

thanks

The Bilstiens are a night and day improvement over ANY spacer kit! But because of the additional weight of your accessories I would recommend a custom valved replacement coil over. But if it comes down to cost Bilstien hands down!

You need stronger coils... like 700 pounders... (and then new shocks to make the truck ride better... )

So I'm installing the bilstein 5100 shocks all around. What is the best solution to level the truck. Do I set the front to 1.75" and do the TSB rear? Or set to 2.25" with the tsb? Some help please.
