Icon5 Shocks?

ok i really did search and i couldnt find what i was looking for.

I have a 3" Doetsch spindle lift and 2" blocks. i am currently running DT3000 shocks. they are pretty stiff, about the same as stock was, and one or both of my front shocks are bad.

so needless to say im kinda looking for new ones.

are there any inexpensive shocks that ride good? i dotn care too much if they handle like crap on the street lol but i would like to do whatever i can to smooth it out(i do quite a bit of off roading so you cans see why i want them to ride smooth).

i have far to many projects to be able to afford bilsteins or anything like that. but i dotn want to drop money into shocks that dont ride any better than my current ones.

any input is appreciated!

NOW: 2003 Explorer XLT 4X4. 4.6L V8. Tow package with the LSD rear axle.

SOLD: 2007 Ranger XL, 2.3L 5spd, lifted and junk.
