About to pull the trigger on some Bilstein 5100's

I am about to buy the Bilstein 5100s in all 4 corners and was wondering what it would look like if I put the front ones at 2.5" and added a 1.5" or 2" AAL in the back? Would that be level or would it lean one way or the other?

How much did you lift the rear? And how much bigger are the tires you have now than the stock TRD OR tires? Because i dont have enough money to buy bigger tires so do you think it would look funny with the stock tires because they might be too small for the lift?

With non tsb leafs and 5100's @ 2.5"/1.5" AAL, there's still a slight forward rake but it looks good. That is how mine is.
