I am open to suggestions, I have the money to do this and want to make sure i understand what i need so i don't get fooled by any local shop and pick the right brand. The local shop i called said they have been installing a lot of ready lifts. (http://www.readylift.com/)

Haha

It is good sstuff, but you could get the same ride you want or better for a grand less. For instance my setup is taller, rides better, has more travel, more ground clearance and still carries the same quality and warranty as BDS. Oh and it will be level...

I say do some research on here on the other forums and you will see the light!

Also if i got the RCX kit would getting Bilstiens 5100 be an upgrade to the ride vs using the stock ones that come with it?

With 1/4" wheel spacers you can use oem wheels.

No 6" kit is 100% bolt on, I don't think anyway.

The Bilstein 5100s will be an upgrade to any kit due to your upgrading the oem struts.

That's a coilover not just a strut swap.

You're splittin **** hairs. Both are good just pick one. Depends on the series you want and how deep your pockets are.

You wont notice a difference in ride between the two. Now you will notice firmer street ride frkm both over your oem struts on the road, in a bad way. Neither shine till you get off the pavement.or the pavement is uneven or potholed up. With that said all your gaining is looks and a skinnier wallet if its a Pavement Pounder.

So it seems a 6" RCX kit with bilstein 5100 all around would be a solid choice? Is there anything else thats worth upgrading while i am doing this?

That is a good choice!
This is what I would do..
Choice one would be what you just said.
Choice two that above but with the Bilstein 5165 14" Remote Resi shocks like I have
Choice three would be the Fox IFP up front with the FOX/BDS shocks out back
Choice four would be the Fox IFP up front with some FOX remote resis out back.

All are good choices. I wanted to do those FOX IFPs like you posted earlier but already had the adjustable bilstiens up front and IM ocd so I couldnt mix and match shocks. I went though all of this not to long ago as well lol.
