Sorry guys, can't get online from work. I'd go for 2" spacers, that would work just fine. The coils/aal's were too firm for my liking, I figure the spacers will be softer. Storm your close enough to meet at Hodgies! I've got spring compressors if you need to borrow them too. I can get you the springs so you only have to take things apart once.
If you want to split them up I can send the AAL's to Colin too.
