Bilsteins will do so much but your biggest problem with ride quality is those spacers. Ditch the spacers and run the Bilsteins instead.

I've honestly never had an issue with the spacers before on any of my trucks so that's why I went with them again.

I'm confused on what you are trying to ask.. Are you asking for replacement shocks that will work for a spacer lift? You can get 5100s, they don't have to be adjusted, they can stay at the "0" setting. But why not just ditch the spacer and adjust 5100s to either 2.5" or get OME Coils?

Yeah wanted a shock like the 5100 but don't know if they have to be longer then stock length due to the added 3" spacer

You won't need longer shocks. I have spacers with stock shocks and coils. Until tomorrow when I toss my ome shocks and 884s under it.
