    If you get the TSB done.
    Unsettled leafs= ~2" of lift
    Settled leafs= ~1.5" of lift

    Really if you just get the Bilstein 5100 adjustable. and set it at the 2nd or 3rd setting you will be fine

    Do you recommend getting new UCAs if the bilsteins are set to 2.5?

    Sketchy subject. I say yes. But I know a lot of people dont. If you want to play it safe just set them to 1.75" and call it a day.

    Its fine not to swap to LR (Light Racing) or TC (Total Chaos) UCAs. Just remember that the Ball Joint on the stock UCA was not meant to be at that angle for that long of a time [or degree]

    Later down the road I'm going to get the TC UCAs. 2 reasons, To stop my tires from rubbing against it at full turn; and 2 less stress on the components when I'm offroading.
