Default 07 dodge ram 1500, improving stock suspension.

Hello, fellow ram owners!!

I am hoping to improve the ride and stability of my new dodge, and at the same time gaining a small lift. around 2" or so would be nice. This is what I was thinking of doing, if any of you have comments or suggestions I would love to hear them.

Bilstein shocks for the front end, which would give me 2.25" of lift.

and perhaps some air bags for the rear?? I have no experience with airbags, but im asssuming they would lift my truck, and if I keep the pressure low, it should absorb some of the bumps.

I was also planning on purchasing a rear anti-sway bar from Hellwig.

I was thinking that air bags would be the answer to give me a small lift, without sacrificing ride quality. Any opions as to what setup to go with would be extremely appreciated. I have never installed a lift on a truck, other than an old chevy which i beefed up the rear leaf springs.

This is my work truck, I drive it on rough terrain all day, and I figure if I can make the shocks / suspension absorb the bumps, then the drive train and cab wont wear out / start rattling.

What do you guys think? awesome forum btw!!!
