Like I mentioned above I've been in your shoes and had the same thought process you are going through. My R has +3 laeger LT up front with pep zps shocks. Out back I'm currently running a stock heart transplant. With a laeger -1 arm (88-89 length) And it all feels good to me.

Before this I was running +3 arms and triple rate tcs standard travel shocks. I couldn't really tell the difference other then the zps sat lower. Out back was the same set up.

If your going to be hitting trails I would suggest going with +2

If you've got the money for the LT setup in the front, then I don't see a reason why you shouldn't go that route.

No linkage available for the rear that will turn it into LT. You can go no-link, but as stated earlier you'll need to strengthen the upper shock mount considerably.
