Installed these on my truck about 500 miles ago. They ride way better than the stock z71 Ranchos. Take out all the float and at the same time remove the harshness of bumps/potholes. Expansion joints are firm but not harsh. I have the 6112 on the lowest setting as I wasn't looking to lift my truck, I sit about .25" higher than stock. Highly recommend this kit, truly optimizes the suspension on the truck without the cost of Kings, Icons, or upper end Fox.

Put this on my 2018 Tacoma SR5. It feels like a totally different truck. Thanks Bilstein!
Does this reuse factory parts or does it come complete ?

The Bilstein B8 6112 Suspension Leveling Kit does require use of some original factory parts. The top spring mount is re-used with the new shocks and coil springs included with this kit.
Here is a link to the instructions for this kit that will explain further.
The instructions will also be available on our website very soon
How much lift will this provide? Only looking for maybe an inch or two

This Bilstein 6112 Series Lift Kit has ride height adjustable shocks. There are 4 grooves on the body of the shock that you can adjust a snap ring to and then the spring seat will be at that level.
Bilstein says that the range is from 0-2.75 inches of lift.
If you check out these instructions it shows the levels
