Go to Autozone and get Gabriel shocks. You should be able to get a set of under $150.

thanks for all the help guys i ended up gettin gabreil gardians for the front and load carriers for the rear
The load carriers gave me about an inch or a half of an inch in the rear and ALOT more weight that i am able to carry back there as for the gardians they serve the purpose for replaceing the oem shocks and they lifted the front "sag" from the blown ones so i finally got my stock stance back now for the modifacations if anyones got ideas of how to level it let me kno
Buy the way all for only cost me 117.95 so not bad at all agin thanks for the help
