Default Getting Bilstein 5100's, do i need springs?

I have decided on Bilstein 5100 series adjustable shocks to level my ride. I have read that some people put Skyjacker D25 springs on with the 5100's. Is this necessary, or will the stock springs work well with the Bilsteins?

Thanks to any and all who reply.

The stock springs and retainers will work just fine. That's what 98% of guys running the Bilsteins use.

Correct.

No need to update springs as the OEM supplement the Bilstein's well.

Awesome, that's what I was hoping for.

Bullys: I have sent an email detailing the mods I would like to purchase from Bully's. You guys have been most excellent.
