5100's at 2.5'' and 2'' aal level?

i just found out i dont qualify for the TSB
i have 5100's at 1.75" in the front and the back is a little low and saggy
if i adjusted the 5100's to 2.5" and got a 2"aal would it be level?
i also have 265/70/16 cooper atr's, would the space between the tire and the fender look out of proportion? i know its an opinion question but i dont have an opinion so fill me in

Depends on what your measurements are right now from the ground through the hub to the wheel arch. Mine were 35" front, and 37" in the back stock. I added 5100's at 0.85 with the eibach spring up front and got 2.6" of lift. I added a 2" AAL to the back and got 2.25" of lift...now the measurements are 37.6" front, and 39.25" in the rear...looks good with just a little rake to the front. Pics are in my gallery. Keep in mind that the rear arch is approx. 0.5-0.75" higher from the factory as well, so if you end up even front to back, your rear end is actually lower.

I wish more people would realize this.

I like the raked look.

I just installed 5100's at 2.5 and 2" aal in the rear. Pics can be seen if you search my name.
