Default Leveling kit suggestions

I have a black 2005 dodge ram regular cab (2 door) 2 WHEEL DRIVE. I would like to know the best leveling kit (under $120). It is very steep as of now and am going to level it out.
Are the rubber or metal blocks better?
How big of a lift should i get? I am thinking 2.5" or 3", but dont want the front end to be higher than the back end after i do it. There is a truck parts store a few miles away, should i just go there and see what they say?

Post if you have done this and suggest what size to buy, and any pictures would be great.

Thanks.

the front end is 2" lower than the back. I purchased a Tough Country front leveling kit online and it costs me about $78 with free shipping. I have had the kit on for about 2 years and have not had any issues. It is metal and not rubber. Hope this helps.
