Default Shocks recommendation 2007 Quad SLT 2WD

I have a 2007 Ram 1500 Quad SLT with the Lone Star package 20" wheels and tires etc. I bought it used about a year ago and am ready to do a shock absorber change at 78,000 miles. In the past I have used KYB Gas Adjust shocks on my trucks. Any suggestions for the RAM? I want to keep suspension stock, its 2WD so do not plan to go off road. Its mostly in town and highway driving. Thanks

Those ones will not. If your truck is 2wd you'll need to do a spacer kit or coil kit.
Bilstien adjustables are only for 06-11 4x4s
I'll be more then happy to help with any questions just need to know if your truck is 4x4 or 2wd and what direction you really wanna go

Ok I still havent gotten around to replacing the shocks on my Ram yet. I am at 95,000 miles. I have not driven the truck much in the past few months as I have a Mini Cooper I use for everyday commute. I am still leaning toward the KYB shocks front and rear. Im going to replace the front shocks first, but in looking them up on line there are several different models. I have in the past gotten KYB gas-a just and have not had any issues. Any suggestions?

To add a note, I know I am still running on original shocks. I noticed driving it to work on the highway this morning that the front end is starting to bounce and getting a slight wheel hop when I hit a bump. With the high performance tires I have on the truck I want to optimize their performance.. Im taking the truck into the dealer tomorrow for an oil change, tire rotation and balance and the 100K inspection and applicable service. I will get their recommendation for shocks, perhaps Dodge has a option to the OEM shocks. Just have to compare prices and responsiveness.
