Default What shocks should i buy?? 98 ram 1500

hey

im putting in a 2.5 inch leveling kit on my 1998 1500. the shocks i have right now are pretty much shot so i figure i should replace 'em while im at it. just wondering if anybody has any suggestions on what brand of shock i should buy? ive heard that bilstein is pretty good but i thought i would ask... also should i bother with getting a longer shock for the leveling kit?

thanks alot!

With leveling kit you don't need extended shocks
