Just leveling: what spring for 5100's?

I tried searching, but there is so much info and I can't find this specific answer. My 06 Double cab Tacoma has 100K miles on it with the stock shocks. The ride is terrible and I'm getting extra wear on the inside of my tires. The repair guy said the old shocks were the reason. I decided I want to upgrade to the 5100's all around, but I only want to level it out. Basically I just want to know what new springs to get. Would the OME or the Eibach springs work for just leveling?

I have a 2011 dcsb with the 2x1 rear leafs . I also just wanted to level out the truck . So here is what I did. I went with the 5100's all around. Fronts are set at 0 with OME 883x springs. It leveled it out and it rides so much better then stock. Hope that helps.

883s will give you right about 1" of lift.

Agreed.

I don't have any lift, but in my research, I found 883s with billies at 0 should be around 1.5" of lift, and would be close to the Eibach with billies at 0 for 1.6" of lift.
