I have a 6" RCX with my bilsteins at 2.1" with no added lift to the rear and I sit nose high by .75". With bilstein at 1.4" you will sit level. So you will not be perfectly level with just the 6", however it will no be overly noticeable.

With my 8.1" of lift I still rub on 37s, but this can be because I have 20x10 Fuel wheels.

You will be fine without regearing but it will not be perfect. I have 3.55 (even 3.92) and I definitely lost power and mpg. It also much harder on my trans. Now am I happy with my setup? Absolutely. Would 4.56 be a much better modification? absolutely! You will be no where near stock with stock gears. For me it is just enough to keep me satisfied. They are probably telling you that because re-gearing a 2012 is a PAIN!

My build thread is below if you wants pics etc.

If you have any other questions let me know.

Where in TX are you?
