Suspension config question / 5100 OME 881

I'm about to order a pre-assembled strut / spring configuration and I wanted to check with folks before I hit checkout.

I've got a 2000 PreRunner with original suspension 100K miles.

I'm going to update with 5100 front and 881 OME springs.

I'm also adding 5125s in the back with a Wheeler AAL (2" lift)

If I am using the 2" AAL, should I go with the 2.5" setting on the front struts? I need to know for the assembly notes since I won't have the luxury of compressing the springs myself.

I have no additional front weight, but I carry a high top fiberglass cap on the back.

Any wisdom is greatly appreciated.

OME coils already yeild your lift therefore the 5100's needs to be left at 0"/stock height.

Makes sense - so I should go with the 1.5" rear AAL? (rather than the 2.0")

Some people like the rear higher to load stuff in their bed. You can also toss on .5" top plate spacer also. Every truck is different. This is the reason why I went with adjustable coilovers. I can adjust and level my truck to the rear of my leaf pack and compensate for driverside lean. Keep in mind you are installing AAL on your stock leaf springs so it may or may not yeild 2" total depending on the condition of your stock leaf pack.
