Springs to use with Bilstein HD's.

I have been looking around and trying to figure out what springs to use with BIlstein HD's. I do not intend to lower my vehicle as much as I would like to lift it. Right now I only have the Bilstein HD rear shocks but was going to purchase the front struts. I thought about the OME springs for front and rear, but as I have recently bought the Bilstein HD rears it is my understanding that these Coils are 2 inches longer and would result in possible over-extension of the rear shocks. I was curious as to what my options are if any, or if I just stick with the oem coils? I imagine that Bilstein rears and OME struts would not make for a good combination either. Can anyone confirm this?

I have not seen this myself. I only see the strut without the coils in our Bilstein HD model.

OME has shocks that are about an 1-2" longer than the Stockers/Blisteins.
