Default Question about leveling a '07 Ram 1500 2wd

Alright, just bought a 2007 Ram 1500 2wd with factory 20" tires and rims. Want to put a leveling kit on there, but don't want a nose up look, and don't want it to not be enough. Have been looking at just getting 1.5" leveling kit, but would 2" or 2.5" be better? Any help or input would be great, thanks!

i did a 2.5 on a 4wd n didnt do much but with the way 2wd trucks front ends sit so low a 2.5 would probably be the best bet

I am pretty sure that 1.5" would be best, and 2" is the max you want to go on the '07's. They redesigned the upper control arms in '06-up 1500s and have a problem with them hitting the upper shock mounts on any spacers over 2"
