I think your front will only be about 1.5" higher, It wont look bad. I suggested add the AAL from personal preference.

The 2.5 setting on the shock is designed to lift your truck about an 1.5" once installed. The coils may settle a little bit as well after a few drives.

Anytime you put a lift on your truck you need to get an alignment. The 2.5 setting might actually sit a little higher in the front. For a completely level ride go with the 1" AAL.
