Tricky question on shocks!

OK, I have a 02 Pre-Runner dbl cab TRD. I put Firestone ride rite air bags in the rear (I haul 2 dirt bikes with gear) with new KYB Mono-Max shocks, I now want to replace the old front shocks with new ones, I was thinking of getting the bilstein 5100s in the front to level it out? Will this this work to level it? Or should I just get a set of matching front KYB shocks and leveling blocks?

You can ajust the lift hight with the 5100s correct? I dont want it over lifted because I cant lift the rear with air bags on it.
