I am guessing the 2nd ones. They are double the price of the first ones and with my experience the more you spend usually the better quality of product you get. Plus there street performance shocks which should perfom great.

^^^Yes, well it may. If the shock has reduced travel due to your ride height, you will have ride quality issues...

it depends how it was lowerd.. i see in your sig 2inch lowering coils, what eles did you do?

you may just have to raise the shock mount alittle bit or else the shocks may bottom out.. or lower the bottom mount wither way

if you want a stock ride nissan hardbody shocks fit rangers since they are smaller they are good for a 5 inch drop and will give you a stock ride and they are alot cheaper and you can get them at autozone. I forgot what years to ask for though.

as for the first selection you posted I have those in the back on my truck and they ride good.

good you'll like them. They are alot better than toxics. Toxics just rode stiff and hard the nitros are a little more softer ride and a hell of a lot better. They ride damn good for my axle being on the frame.

Belltech streets are NICE shocks. I put a pair on the rear of Shawnas truck when we flipped the hangers on hers. I would say they ride as nice as the Monotube ( Edelbrock IAS ) I have on mine.
