    No, seeing as how you have a top-plate spacer, the Billies will actually make the ride stiffer, because they preload the springs.

    But as others have said, they are a much higher quality lift than you have right now.

    with 5100s he wont need the spacer, so he can sell it/throw it away and just ride on the 5100s which will be a butt ton smoother than what he's got now

    Yes, but the ride will be stiffer, because the spacer he has now does not compress the coils.

    It stands for "add-a-leaf". It is a type of rear lift where you put one more leaf in you leaf pack.

    No, they are not. Only ways to lift the back are blocks (not recommended) or AAL's.

    Will i need a AAL to do the 2 1/2" in the front or does that match up with the back already?

    not sure what you are asking here. The front doesn't have any leafs.
