replace stock springs when adding lift?

I am going to be installing the RR 2.25" lift with Bilsteins up front and Rancho adjustable in the rear. Has anyone replaced their stock springs when adding a spacer lift? I am refering to replacing the stock springs with stock length springs. Just to bring them back to new level. PS - I currently have 70K miles on them right now.

It seems to me if you are going to go thru the work & expense of changing springs I would suggest changing to an 2" OME lift.
Spring & shocks/struts will give you a 3" lift with better ride & far more articulation than stock springs with rr lift.

Exactly what I was going to say. For that cost, just get the best suspension out there (short of one of the 4" kits) and go OME!

WHERE DID YOU FIND THE KIT?? I read your sig and that's what I'm trying to fit, 265/70r-17. On my stock wheels. I was gonna just do the 2" spacer with bilsteins but thats 360 all together anyways so I was just gonna go for the OME but I CANT FIND IT ANYWHERE!!!
