Yes. The only difference is the spacer. They use a 4” spacer in the 4” and a 5” spacer in the 6”. No that’s not a typo. The biggest consideration is your ride. What is your bilstein 6112 currently set at? The 4” spacer and bilstein at 2”is 6” lift either way. Going to the 5” spacer only gets you 1” more front lift either way. Also bilstein recommendation goes out the window as soon as you put a suspension lift on the truck anyways. The suspension lift should keep all stock geometry so setting the bilstein up to 2” or 2.6” should not max out the suspension

I currently have a 4" spacer and the bilsteins set at 0 or at stock height. That makes sense on the bilsteins, when a 4" lift is installed. I was just going off what they originally told me but the tech I talked to may not have know I had a 4" lift installed. He may have thought I was lifting the truck via a spacer and using the bilstein clip at 2".

Yup. So go ahead and set your bilstein up higher and swap your upper control arms from stock arms if you still have stock arms and you’ll be good to go
