The best brand is the OEM, which is NGK for the HEMI, I believe. The part number should be on the gap sticker. As far as fluids, change them all out as time and money permits. The sooner the better. Synthetic will definitely be a good idea, but again, as money permits. Shocks are easy to replace and they're not too expensive. While you've got it up in the air, with the tires on, grab the tires and push/pull on opposite sides. What you're checking for is to see if there is any play in the bearing and/or the lower ball joint. The ball joints in our 3rd gen Rams are famous for going south. Check all your seals and gaskets for leaks. Other than that, keep doing what your doing and you should get a lot more life out of the beast.
