THEORY: Vowel gradation

I have a problem. In one of my languages, which is like Mark Rosenfelder's
Kebreni in that it uses vowel gradation, I made a rule that says front
vowels become back vowels and back vowels become front vowels. The problem
is that I don't know what to change /@, a, {/ to. Suggestions? (I have a
vowel inventory of /i, y, e, 2, @, a, {, o, u/).
Another question: With the inventory above, what would each vowel become if
it were raised or lowered (this for another grammatical function)?
"If you pulled the wings off a fly, would it then be called a walk?"
