2" AAL with 5100s. What setting for FRONT 5100s?

I got 5100 adjustables and 5100 0-3" lift for rear and ordered a 2" Toytec AAL. These will be installed on a 2005 Tacoma Double Cab Prerunner. I'm looking for a slight rake like stock (rear a tad higher) or level look.

What should i set the front 5100s at with the 2" AAL? Pictures help so i can have an idea. Getting installed this week when the AAL comes in.

I've got 5100s in the front set at 2.5" with a 1.5" aal in the back, and I still have a slight rake. It's barely noticeable, but I can see it's there. It's isn't as pronounced as the stock rake though.

Have you had any issues with stock coils @ 2.5? Are you running different UCA?

The wheels look like KMC XD795's, if my eyes haven't totally taken a crap.

I'm interested in this thread because I just took possession of a 2009 DC TED Sport with 120000 miles on it. When I test drove it, it was smooth as silk. After I got it back to my shop (I work in tires and service), we found that the driveshaft support bearing was completely blown out, so we replaced it. Now, it has the dreaded acceleration vibration. What I want to find out is, if I install an aal (probably Toytec or OME) and then level the front with the Bilsteins, does anyone here think that my driveline vibration will go away? Or should I just start with a traction bar like the Budbuilt unit? Any help is greatly appreciated. This vibration is driving me crazy.

Getting the lift installed tomorrow. Getting set at 2.5 with a 2" aal and 5100 rear. I'm keeping stock UCA and coils. I'll let y'all know how it rides and looks tomorrow afternoon. Pretty excited to see the difference, and hopefully better.
