Default Getting a 4in lift kit soon! need advice

My Truck: 2012 Ram 1500 4x4 Laramie Crew Cab

I want to use Nitto Trail Grappler - 35X12.5R20, will be on stock rims but in the future will probably upgrade to ATX Artillery or Moto Metal 951 (maybe next year).

On Nitto web site the spec they give for those tire a 35.04in tall and 13.39in width so I'm planning to get some Hubcentric spacers just in case (Don't want some crappy spacer on Ebay made in china by some 12 year old kid). If someone know where to find good quality Hub Centric spacers and how big of a spacer i will need that would be nice.

As for the 4in lift kit so far I looked at the Mopar (picture and info here) which has the Blistein Shock, and BDS (picture and info here), which is almost a $1000 cheaper then the mopar, had options like 2in or 3in rear Coils, 5500 series or Fox 2.0 shocks and steering stabilizer (single or dual).
Which will look better 2in or 3in Rear Coils? are the Fox 2.0 Shock as good as the Blistein? and is it recommended that I get the steering stabilizers or would it affect normal driving? How about the quality compare to the Mopar or is there others with better 4in lift kit?

I also want a lift kit that make the front and rear look about even, while I won't mind if the back is a little bit higher then the front, I'm really not a big fan of having the front higher then the back (personal preference).
