883s+ARB+Winch and keeping things level

I just got my 883s, ARB bumper and winch from wheelers today.

I currently have the bilstein 5100s all around. The front has the spring completely preloaded for the maximum lift. The back has a 1.5" add a leaf. I am trying to figure which clip to set the 883s in on the strut to keep the truck level. So far my research has lead me to believe the middle clip would give me the same amount of lift and keep things level.

Anyone have this setup?

After doing more research it seems like a bad idea to preload the 883s. They have an identical height to the 881s. Given all the extra weight out front I think I will sit level with my AAL. Fingers crossed

I have the 883's with OME shocks and dakars in the rear. I just finally installed my Warn VR 10,000 LB winch this past week and now the front sits a little lower than the rear end. Prior to the winch install it sat pretty level. Not sure how your AAL's compare height wise to the dakars, but should be similar. Also winches can vary in weight, I have a 10,000 lb winch with 100' of steel cable. If you install the winch and don't like the stance, switch to synthetic line and it will help a little with the weight.

the install went great. 883 lifted the front from 37.5" to 38.75". Once the winch and arb are on it should settle back to level.

So you paired the 5100.s with the 883.s? They generally don't play nice together from everything I have seen here. Just FYI.
