Default Lift Question

Hey guys, looking to upgrade the truck soon with a lift and tires.

Truck is 98 ram 1500 sport 4x4

I've been looking around and I believe the lift i'm wanting to go with is a 5" with 35" tires to go with it, there's so many different brands i'm just wondering which one is the best to go with? are there any I should avoid purchasing? any that ride horrible? i'm aware it usually comes down to what you want to pay, i'm not looking to spend a fortune, but i'm definitely not looking for cheap stuff.

Is there anything I should be upgrading as well to go with the bigger tires? the steering stabalizer bar to a dual? or anything else?

any help is greatly appreciated, and thanks in advance guys.

have you thought about a body lift? it would give you the extra height to fit 35's and wouldnt change the overall ride quality of your rig. unless you are talking about heavy duty offroading, i dont see why a body lift wouldnt accomplish what you wanted.
