5100's

So I'm finally about to pull the trigger on a lift since always looking on this website. Now i have an 06 double cab prerunner all stock. I would like to start slow on lifting my truck. I saw this on downsouthmotorsports.

Toyota Tacoma 05-2013 Front & Rear Bilstein 5100 Ride Height Adjustable Shocks
Sale: $309.99

Now for the rear there are three different shocks 0-1.5, 2-2.5, 3-4. which one would be the best to get.

If you want to lift the back you'll need to get either a leaf pack, an AAL, or blocks.

Shocks dont make the lift. Springs do.

Do you need to do an alignment after installing the 5100s set at 1.5 - 1.75?
