OME 881/890 Leveling question

One of my rear shocks is bad and I have OME stuff waiting to be installed. I bought 881/890 springs and have been researching leveling issues. I'm a bit confused as to whether additional spacers are needed anywhere or what is needed. I'm not overly concerned about being perfectly level but would like to not have driver lean or be drastically off front to back.

The 9004 front shocks that I bought used came with 1.5 inch spacers on them. I haven't taken everything apart yet on my front end but am measuring 1.5 inches for the spacer's overall length. Does that raise it up a net 1.5 inches in addition to the spring raise? Generally, do the 881/890 springs paired on 9004 front/60073 rear shocks end up being pretty level? Do you need spacers on either end, front to back, or left to right?

I've tried searching and haven't found anything definitive. I know it's always somewhat dependent vehicle to vehicle but there should be a general concensus as well. I'd just like to know what to expect and hopefully just install once instead of taking it all apart again.

Any spacer in the front will just about double the amount of lift you’ll see since the front control arms are very close to a 2:1 ratio. The rear is 1:1 ratio so the spacer’s height is directly correlated with the amount of lift it provides.

That being said, you’ll get approx 2.75” to 3” of lift out of the front, and the rear will be close to 3” of lift with the 890/891. The 890’s give about 3” unloaded with the stock cone bump stops still installed, and I believe the 891’s are slightly shorter (by maybe 1/4”) unloaded but hold more weight and will ride higher when loaded down a couple hundred pounds. You should be pretty level with that setup. Right around 23” hub to fender height all around. Stock is around 20” average.

Edit: disregard the front end heights. The 881 and spacers will be too much lift if used together. I thought I read 890/891 for rear springs but you said 881/890

My '97 has the springs you have mentioned, but with the 04 shocks front and the 27 shocks rear. No mention of spacers at time of sales/install.
Yes, there is lean. Coming from Land Cruiser FJ60's, I'm not motivated to do anything about it.
Stance when empty is a definite, but IMO moderate, rake. Load it with ≈500 pounds in the rear and middle, and the rake seems to be neutralized.
I'm pleased to have a truck that, once heavily loaded, doesn't drag its butt low and look overloaded.
I spec'd the springs with a heavy bumper in mind, but I've never added the bumper. The 881 springs in front and without a heavy added constant load yield a slight positive camber. No diff drop was used, and I've had no trouble from the [what I take to be] the original CV axles.
