Downsides to running sport springs with 5100's??

I'm about to purchase a set of 5100's and was wondering is there any downside to running a factory sport spring with the Bilsteins set to 2.5"?? No offroading what so ever.

How would I benefit from running an OME 885 with the Bilsteins vs the factory spring? Lift should be the same right?

Seting 5100's on anything but the 0" setting puts pre-load on your coils. Pre-load=rougher ride. Puting a after market coil and setting 5100's @0
Allows the coil to lift the truck=better ride/handling. With that said a lot of guys on here don't seem to mind the ride of the pre-loaded coils. the shocks in themself are a nice upgrade to the factory ones even with some pre-load. I had mine set @1.75" of lift and thought the ride was better than factory, but ended up putting aftermarket coils on for more lift and better handling.

Just stiff. It'll jar you real good on those deep potholes but if you don't off road I wouldn't see any issues
