What have you guys went to for a better shock than stock? Remember that my Ranger is a daily driver that sees a lot of paved road use (99.9%) so comfort and handling are important (not so much raw off road capability). Here in WV their idea of repairing frost heaves is to pave over them so you have a nice series of jumps every 600 ft or so.
Oh yea, cost is a factor as always since I have to own so many damned cars and love modding them all. Have to balance it all out.
