Default What shocks to get

I am needing shocks all around, what are the best ones to get on a budget. Mine are about rusted off and looking to do it soon. Truck is factory lift stock. Any links to buy online or local auto stores would be great. Thanks again.

i like Summit Racing. give your truck info to limit the product listing specifically made for your truck.

hope this helps.

Most generic aftermarket shocks are made buy one or two companies unless you get into the cool but pricey stuff like Bilstiens, Fox, or King.
I would probably stick with Gabriels or Monroes on a stocker. I'm not into Ranchos at all.

Monroes are as cheap as $24 each, as well as Gabriels. I have had Ranchos on my lifted GMC Jimmy with no issues and they arent that bad in price either...

I have procompe es9000 and am happy with them. My buddies have the BDS shock but were having problems with them freezing which is why I went with the gas shock
