Default Time for New Shocks!!! Suggestions please...

My 05' just flipped 100k and I need 4 new shocks. Who has done shocks on their Daytona and what brand might you suggest?

Would 4 of these be a nice upgrade from stock Shocks?

I have Monroe heavy duty on the front and Monroe Sensa-track load adjusting shocks on the rear and I love them for towing. Helps the leaf springs when under load

Thanks much. Sounds like the Monroe's are well liked up here!!!
The Bilstein's Heavy Duties appear to be well regarded too.

Summit house brand. They literally turned the box inside out and stapled it back together. No complaints for $150 for 4 corners.
