WHat's best raise the front or lower the back 2500

We have a 2005 2500, I would like it to be uniform. Which is the the best way to handle this?
1) Raise the front 2"
2) Lower the back 2"

Well I have a 04 1500. I used a 2" coil lift along with new shocks and front end alignment. I was told stock shocks did not have enough play for the exra 2" of lift. 100 for the coils, 120 for the shocks, 100 labor and 75 for alignment.

It's a 2wd. I noticed 3 shims over the back axle maybe 1 1/2" total, can I remove these without causing any damage or needing a shim to adjust for the angle? This message has been edited.

Id personally just do a front coil spacer if you haul any weight in your truck, when you drop the rear end it has less weight carrying capacity hence the axle is closer to the bump stops, Just my personal opinion!!!
