5100 vs spacers

ok, i have an 06 2WD DC. I have the 3" spacers on the front and the AAL in the rear. I know that the spacers get a bashing on here but i'm not too unhappy with them but would like to try and get the ride closer to how it was pre-lift.

If i install a set of 5100's in the front (set at 2.5) and take out the big spacer that sits right on top of the coil but leave in the smaller spacer above the strut assy would this give me the same lift i have now? is it OK to do this? Does the height setting on the billy's have any affect on the ride quality?

I wouldn't add anything more then a 1/4 spacer on top of the 5100's. Just get 5100s if you have stock coils and set them at 2.5" the ride aint going to be the best but you do gain the higher clearance. I busted my CV boots at 2.5" maxed out so they are down to 1.75" now.
