OME 885's + billies which AAL?

Alright guys, like many others I've searched and I've searched but have failed to find an exact answer. I am looking into an ome 885+5100 combo up front. I don't have the tsp done on my 05 dbl cab. I was going to go with an AAL in the rear to level out that 2.5" lift. My question is...do I get the 1.5" AAL or the 2" AAL? I've noticed others go with a 1.5" AAL with the 884 combos but haven't seen a post on 885's without the tsb. Will that rear lift be too high?? Or will the fact that I don't have the tsb done make the 2" lift a good fit?

Thx for the help

Oh, and I was at about 3.5" up front but they've settled to a smudge over 3 or right at it anyway

Not very sporting to fire on an unarmed opponent.

Is it pretty level or is the rake noticeable?

how do you compare the ride from the spacers to the 885 coils? i know they are supposed to be sort of stiff, but compared to a spacer, it bet they ride like butter, lol.

yeah, i'm on the trusty old spacers now, haha. i'll be pulling the trigger on the ome kit this friday when i get this next paycheck. i just wondered how the stiffness compared, but anything will feel better than spacers lol. after seeing that pic, i might leave the top plate spacers off.
