adding overload spring back in with 1.5" lift AAL

I have coilovers up front with 2.5" lift and 1.5" lift AAL in the back. Wondering if I will need shims to correct the driveline angle if I add the overload spring back in. Truck measures 3/4" higher in back than the front (1.75" higher than stock) but somehow seems lower than the front when I look at it. Want to add the overload back in to get the racked look back. Wondering how it will ride (stiffer) and if I will get vibrations from being about 2.5" taller than stock in back. Also, if I do this and get vibrations without shims, could I space the carrier bearing down to correct the angle.

Carrier bearing drop would be essential to help with the vibrations. You can order it from Toytech's website.

Mine is also set 2.5 in front with 1.5 AAL in the 3 leaf pack. (2 leafs, overload + AAL) Truck is an inch higher in back & has no vibrations.
