Hi gazmob. I would suggest , if you're keeping the drop kit, fitting uprated shockers.

If splitrims advice does'nt work try a 6" lift kit

How are you getting along with the Bee, is it your first Dodge?

MJ i got mine from the states "Pro Comp" perfect, it's levelled out the truck just great.
If you are thinking of leveling your truck dont go any higher than 2" inch otherwise the front end will stick up higher than the back, Try STS Imports and speak to "Ron" i've been getting all my bits from him for a few years now.

I'd love to get a 6" lift kit but abit pricey at the moment as i'm looking for a set of wheels as well, (which i've found, ) but getting so many conflicting opinions regarding the fitment is doing me "ead" in.
