Default Front suspension upgrade time?

Hey everyone,
As I said this is my first ever Dodge Ram. After driving it at highway speed and hitting my first bump the front end bounced real fast for a split second and the steering wheel was a little scary. So I did a google search and found this site and also found out after reading a bit that this is common. So I have decided that in a few weeks I'm gonna buy some Blistein 5100 leveling front shocks and a matching set of Blisteins for the rear so I can level my truck and help combat that bounce at the same time. All the bushings and ball joints under the truck look to be in good shape but I'm wondering if while I have it all apart should I replace the stabalizer bushings or a whole new stabalizer bar n bushings just because? If so what type of bushings are best? And for those who have the Blisteins on their 2007 1500 SLT 4x4 what setting did you put the fronts on? Thanks in advance for any advice and insight on my newtruck.
