    So here's the deal, I currently have a Revtek 3" coil spacer with 1.5" rear blocks that I am soon removing and replacing with Eibach 1.6" coils and 5100's all around :D. I already have the TSB leaf springs so I do not plan on doing an AAL. Later on I will also be getting new UCA's as well (haven't started my research here, but open to hear suggestions). I have been searching for a couple months and decided this would be the ideal lift for me, so you can see I am pretty determined on getting this setup. I plan on setting the front Bilsteins at the 0.85" setting to net me around 2.5" of lift in the front matched with the TSB rear springs. What I am looking for is a level stance. Can anyone can verify this will sit level? I really would rather not have it be nose high unless I was actually long travel. So please, if anybody has this setup or something similar and can verify this please chime in.

    With my current setup the rear sits a bit higher, the front has sagged a bit since this photo is out dated but the TSB springs are settled in the pic. Just giving a general idea of how it sits now.

    getting there....
    it may be level at first, but once the springs settle in the rear.....it may be a bit higher in the front. 1.75 on the billies with stock coils usually makes it pretty level.....but im not too sure on the eibachs.

    I have had the TSB springs done for awhile now, so I am sure they are done settling. As of now the truck sits higher in the rear, but I am thinking it will be a bit more balanced once I pull out the blocks. It looks like the front coils have sagged since installing the lift. All this makes it a bit more complicated, I will add a recent picture of how it sits now to my OP.

    I have the Eibach springs on my truck and I definitely did not get 1.6" of lift, I got a little over 1" of lift. Just an FYI

    Eibach coils. 5100's all around. AAL. WickedFlow
    I have eibachs and 5100s at .85 with 2 inch AAL. I still have rake. Lifts been on for about 5 months and it still has rake.

    You should sit pretty level with 1.5 AAL.

    Whats your front and rear measurements? You'll be .5" lower in the front (approx) and loosing 1.5" in the rear.
