it will work but it is an add-a-leaf which tend to be pretty stiff since its that one leaf spring that gives you your lift and they tend to wear down and you lose a little bit of your lift.

Yes, you could also add a spacer but be careful bc if you go high enough you'll need longer lca's.

Rear SOA will net you ~5.5" of lift. This all depends on the perches though (axle diameter + 2x perch height). If you have the extra cash, go with the Hell Creek rear full packs over the AAL.
