Need New Lift

I have a Revtec 3 inch lift on my 07 double cab now but im not happy with it. I was thinking about a leaf pack in the back with bilstein 5125 shocks and 885 ome springs with 5125 bilstein ajustables in the front. Im not really sure if this set up will work because i have been told that the 885 coils will not fit on the 5125 shocks.
I also dont know where to go to get a price on a leaf pack other than a local spring shop that wants to charge to much.

Any Help will be great.
thanks

Toytec offers Billstein front adjustables and 885 springs.

I don't think there is such a thing as inexpensive leaf packs, but here is a company I've heard of multiple times before.

AAL and 1.5" block? Sort of- I did the TSB (which IS an AAL) and a 1.5" block. In front I have a 3" Toytec lift (spacers). Basically I have 3" lift with a pretty close to stock rake.

Hope that helps. You can see a crappy pic of my truck on my profile.

The dealer doesn't know that. Tell them it bottoms out when loaded.

Hope not! OME is top of the line and haven't heard anything negative about this set up. I think it will be a real truck now?
