How about opening leads?

Whew, it's going to take me a few weeks to collate all the responses to my informal survey, so meanwhile let's talk about opening leads. What would you lead in this situation?

Pass♦ Pass♥ 
Pass♥ PassPass
♠ A 9 8 6
♥ 9 7 4
♦ Q 8
♣ K J 9 2

Either the low spade (to indicate ace) or jack of clubs (to indicate king and allow the possibility of the jack taking the trick) would be where I'd go. Unless I'm missing something (and I might be given that my cheat sheet is elsewhere at the moment) the bidding looks straightforward enough in terms of naming suits.

If i decided to lead spades I would lead the ace. I would avoid playing long with a partner who underleads aces at suit contracts. The choices here are ugly beyond belief. I would probably lead a trump.
