1" block vs 1.5" aal + questions, need advice

so i'm having my lift parts put in on monday and need some advice on what exactly i should do.
I've got the 5100's for all 4 corners, eibach springs and 1.5" aal ( and TSB has already been done). the 5100's go in for sure along with the eibach's. what i can't decide is whether to go with:
5100's @ 0 with no block or aal
5100's @ 0 with 1" block
5100's @ .85 with 1.5" aal

right now it's 37.5" from ground thru center cap in the rear and 35.5" in the front.

After reading the trouble some guys have had getting the alignment right with the springs and 5100's @ .85, i'm thinking I might go with them set @ 0.
What do you all think?

I just did a Toytec 1.5" AAL and 5100's set at 1.75. I wound up with 24 1/2" Rear and 22" Front measured from the center cap. It just went on last night, so no time for it to settle yet. The rake is not much more than factory. I'm fine with the difference since my reason for putting the AAL on was to keep it from sagging when I tow my travel trailer. I am thinking it will wind up just about level now with the RV on the back.
