Shocks

So after i put my spindle lift on my ride became rough as hell, so i need to get new shocks. What is the best bang for the buck, i don't wanna spend too much, i saw on 4wheelparts.com a set of procomp ES3000, for like $150, what do you guys think of that? I haven't heard too many good things about procomp. Just let me know what you guys think on shocks as a whole. Thanks.

IM running gabriels, they are okay. Not positive if they are for lifted trucks though. From what I heard Bilstiens are the best and they never need to be replaced, everything can just be rebuilt/refilled.

I recently replaced my 102K mile wearing stock shocks with Bilstein Blue stock replacements (I'm not lifted or lowered) and the difference was amazing. Now I drive around town differently, as I used to have to swerve around known bumps and things that would rattle my teeth. Now it's just a slight thud with less shaking, bumping, and bump-steer.

I don't understand why that is such a good deal. I got 4 Bilstein heavy duty shocks for my 2000 2wd Ranger for under $80 with a limited lifetime warranty from the manufacturer. Seems like I'm missing out on a great business opportunity if I can get them so cheap. Maybe I can hook you up with the ones I got? Let me know and I'll pull out my receipt and warranty info on the new Bilsteins.

After a second look, mine even came with the same decal as shown in the Ebay auction.
