Default shocks for my truck?

Hello , i have a 1999 sport quad cab with the stock original shocks on it . 180000 miles on them. Ive been looking at the monomax kyb shocks. is this going to be the right shocks? I do pull a trailer a lot, but not to much off roading.If i do go offroading i want a good shock for that too. Ive also been looking at the monroe sensa trac also. I just want the best all around performance.anybody have any ideas. oh where can you buy the kyb shocks at.auto parts stores?

Thanks,
Tom

I know a lot of guys that run the Rancho shocks and say good things about them! They also have a lifetime warranty!

There is nothing wrong with the KYB's but for the money your really not going to find a better shock than the Bilstein 5100's.

I put the Bilsteins on my 2006 at 95k and loved the new ride and handling they gave me.
