I just got a set of bilstein 5100's for the front, this should get rid of that factory rake right and witch setting do ya'll recommend because i don't want them to rub the UCA's or anything like that and i want decent ride quality so can i set them at the full 2.5" or should i keep it at the 1.5" to the 2" settings?

None of the settings are going to create coil bucket contact. This adds preload not overall height to the coilover. The middle setting seems to be the choice for most people because it gives you some lift and the ride quality isn't that bad. Most people will tell you that the highest setting is to rough because the spring is compressed. Down/UP travel is very limited and is most noticable on speed bumps and gravel roads.

You could also add a 1.5" PRG leveling kit for around 3" of lift with the 5100's on the middle 1.5" setting.

On my Titan, a '04 w/BT it takes about 3" to level it. But if you want a little rake, you could use the 1.5" leveling kit but with the 5100's on their lowest setting, (1/2"), and have 2" of lift. Plus there would be 1" less preload on the coils, so you'd retain a little more droop travel and have a softer ride than with the 5100's on the middle setting.
