Default ? About leveling an 06

I've looked around a bit and it seems like the best way to level an 06 qc 4x4 are the bilstein a 5100.
What is the part number I would need?
Also I've read somewhere on here that someone got a factory style shock but just 2" longer. Any advantage to the 5100 besides for being adjustable?
I know most are against putting a plow on a 1/2 ton but its only for a few driveways and I'm looking at maybe just doing the snoway 26 (around 480-500lbs with mount) since the 22 (280lbs without mount) doesn't make a mount for a 1/2 ton.
Instead of the 5100's, would I be better off with some sort of heavy duty type shock if I did decide to get a plow?

I would just do a cheaper leveling kit but the truck has 104k miles and the front seems tired so figured I'd go with new shocks.

age525 will become famous soon enough

Not sure on the part number but i have a set of bilsteins in my truck and love them. The ride is much better than it was with the old shocks. I also just got a Western HTS plow this winter. I didn't get a chance to use it much but when i did i had no problems. I also had about 350 lbs ballast in the rear though.
