Brake lines are not needed with that set up and the diff drops do nothing for 2nd gens! You'll be under 3" with all that so nothing to worry about. The 5100s in the rear are fine up to 2" and as long as your not flexing them out hard you should be fine. I'd go with the 1.5" aal to stay even with the front!

A little rake isn't a bad thing, otherwise you'll get bro lean under load.
