the best would be some King's or Fox racing shocks, but that's only if you want to spend some money. Bilstein is a well liked company. sorry i don't have any specific numbers or models though.

yeah if you call up king and tell them how much the truck is lifted, etc. they will make a set of coilovers for the front and shocks for the rear.

actually they are adjustible so you could take out the leveling kit and just turn up the king coilovers a couple inches for the same lift.

I didn't put coil overs in the rear just the front and king piggy backs in the rear no coil. If you wanted to put full coil overs in the rear you would have to delete your leaf springs and put in sway bars and some arms. And leaf springs are better if you still use your truck as a truck. If your using your truck for offroading and you never put anything to heavy in the bed or tow anything then I'd so go for it but it will be expensive.
