Sounds like an expensive proposition. When my Ram was new, I had the dealer install an extra rear leaf and, because the 05's have torsion bars I could raise the front. Dealer put on excellent Rancho 9000 shocks. Almost 200,000 miles later, she's done more work and towed more than most 3500's and still gets decent milage. Unless you tow a heavy trailer or haul very heavy loads, do you need the extra weight and poorer gas milage? BTW, check out a 2006 hemi Mega Cab 1500, not sure how many years they made em, but check one out, either 2500 or 3500 chassis! Friend of mine has one.
