Question Well that's not level...

So I installed a lift.
Bilstein 5100 front and rear
OME 881 in front
OME 890 in rear

And this thing is raked out like a dragster.
Passenger front 36 1/4
Driver front 35 1/2
Passenger rear 39
Driver rear 38 1/4

I'd like to level it all out and It was suggested that I put in 5mm top plate spacers but I feel like that's not tall enough and I was planing on bumpers front and rear. I also have a set of 99 tall springs I can put on the 5100s.

Bumpers would definitely help lower whatever side they're on - if you already have one in mind, what you can do is look up how much it weighs and get some 50lb concrete, gravel or sandbags to simulate that amount and see how the ride is changed. Or sandbag it regardless. You might find the additional weight makes it ride better, too
You could also look into getting some extended/aftermarket bumpstops in the rear and remove the conical stops sitting inside the rear coils, that should drop you 1/4 to 1/2 inch. Similarly you could look into getting some 1/4in top plate spacers from Toytec, which will raise the front end by 1/2in
Should be noted that 881's are for stock weight (if I'm not mistaken), and will sag greatly from the added load of a steel bumper

Are these the ones? OME95PF5 - OME Trim Packer

I'll have to see about stepping up the bumper timeline. I'm sure I could find something heavy to put in the back.
I also found these. They go on top of the tophat. Suspension Trim Packer - YotaMafia

The second ones are what I was referring to. Trim packers are for the same thing but for the rear; to help level out lean or give a tiny bit of extra height
TT's are cheaper if you care

Not sure you’re too far off of being practical. Though a pic might help me realize what your measurements look like.
You want it sitting level at your loaded “weekend weight” so you don’t look like the asshat squatting like those Texas rigs

I know I purposely did a 99talls in front (lowest spring perch)with a progressive Dobinson(v137?) in rear that lifts 2.5”

Lift I estimate 1” front 2.5” rear just going by suspension claims.

The rake is super noticeable when my rack isn’t on. I have a 4 bike rack that weighs about 90#. And is still raked with it in. And I still have #50+of gear/platform in back and a pretty big skybox that’s probably #40 empty. This is all standard load prior to sticking bikes on it and my weekend gear. Rides level with 3 people, and gear.

So, match it to your needs is the bottoms line.

Not saying it will come down as far as you want, but the rear springs WILL settle a bit. 3" of gap is quite a difference.
