Default 05 Ram Daytona 4x4 suspension Need Help!

Greetings, I have a '05 Ram Daytona 4x4 reg cab all stock with 32,000 miles on it. (14" Magnaflow only mod) I plan on keeping the factory 20" wheels and tires on this. I want to keep this as a street truck so I want to try to make it handle on curvy/bumpy back roads best as possible since I tend to drive fast at times since I live in the middle of nowhere with the roads to myself. I like the tight firm "truck feel" so not looking for a soft ride just something better than factory ride that's starting to feel a bit sloppy to me.
First thing I want to raise the front about 2" to help level it but they don't sell adjustable 5100 bilsteins for 05 Dodge Ram 4x4? so that stopped me dead in my tracks to collect parts.
What is the best way to raise the front about 2"? (I read somewhere crank torsion bars?) Once the front is raised I want new shocks front and rear installed and not sure if the Bilstein's 4600 Front: 24-069281/Rear:24-025508 is a good choice all around for a better than OEM ride but I would think they are. I would appreciate anyone with knowledge for this truck to help me be able to get the parts I need. Thanks
