Shock VS Coil??

I have a spacer lift on my truck now and want to get rid of it because the truck drives like a brick. I cannot afford the full coilover setup at this point in time. Would it be better to get Bilstein 5100s with the stock coil and let the shock do the lifting or get OME 884/885 coil and stock shock and let the coil do the lifting? Does either way put too much stress on other stock suspension parts (UCA/LCA, CV Boots, ext.)

You can't run the stock shocks with new 885 coils. You need 885's and 5100's
Your best bet is the 5100's with stock coils. Not sure if it would ride much better than your spacer though. You'll be fine with stock UCA's at 2.5" lift
