No new coils necessary. Just set your 5100's at 1.75 and should be close to level with the TSB.

Get either OME or Toytec. 16in wheels with 4.5 backspace. That'll do it.

Downsouth sells OME stuff too. Not sure if they have a single AAL though, I know they sell the Icon 3-leaf which rides like butter but is an expensive AAL.

Also, if you're pushing between 2.5 - 3" you might want to think about UCA's also...

If you are lifting the front 2.5" (either with 885s or 5100s) and you are OK with being nose high then no the AAL isn't necessary.
