    Well it's a spacer lift and there not the best. What year truck do you have and how many miles?

    Your alignment (although within spec) may be less than desirable. In the future, you could add UCAs to solve that problem.
    The AAL is what I have on my truck, and is a very good AAL IMHO.

    Do a search on Bilstein 5100 2.5. I think those alignment discussions would give you a bunch of insight..

    Well at least your springs are new. I personally wouldn't put spacers on my truck let alone a brand new one. i would spend a little extra money and upgrade the shocks. You could get some 5100's & AAL for a little more then price and have a way better ride.

    If you just want it level just buy the 5100's and no AAL and set the shocks to 1.75 and your golden and it's the same price as the spacer lift and your ride will be better.

    I had spacers to get me by till I got a set of bilstien 5100s and looking back I wish I never got the spacers, just go with the better lift the first time you won't regret it.

    What is the best 5100 setting when adding the AAL to maintain stock rake? I'm probably going to do this this week because when I put BFG AT TA 265-70-17s on MotoMetal 951s, I get rubbing on the front fender bottom lip when reversing and turning. I've already removed the flaps and trimmed the front inner fender well.

    Thanks!

    I honestly have no clue but Id think it would be 1.75" with the 1.5" AAL but I don't have a 2nd Gen so I'm not sure.

    There are some discussions on here about this very subject. The 1st question will be which AAL are you going to add? I think you are answering your own question... if you want your truck to have the same or close rake that you have now.
    If you lift the back 1.5" the front could go 1.75 (no 1.5 on the 5100s)
    If you do a 2" back, then 1.75 would give you more rake, 2.5 would give you a little less rake.

    I have a DC LB, and have my fronts at 1.75, 2" AAL on the rear and a snugtop shell.. I still have rake... I am picking up some UCAs so I can lift the front to 2.5, and hopefully be a little more level.

    Also, I wish I took someones advice.. Get the AAL that you want, then play around with a floor jack on the front to simulate 1.75 or 2.5. That way you only do your front once...

    Also, the AAL will sag a very small bit, but not a lot IMHO..
