4X2 shocks

forgot to add this in my earlier post.
since I am gonna be replacing ball joints, this gives me an opportunity to get rid of the crappy monroe sensa-trac shocks that I have been saddled with for 4-5 years. crappy in that they are way too stiff. mostly surface street driving here, no offroading, sometimes load it over the limit (!)
any suggestions?

If you want a good ride...go with any mono-tube shock. Monroe's, Gabreil's and even Rancho shocks are a twin-tube design, thus the oil and gas come together creating shock fade. Plus they are made from exhaust tubing...no joke. I suggest KYB Gas-A-Just mono-tube shocks.
