I have the Deaver F31's, they ride pretty smooth and have decent travel with the 6400 shackles. Only downside is they are expensive and you can't haul jack **** without your rear end sagging like crazy. If you do decide to get the deavers do NOT get the race packs, they are very stiff since they are designed for a race application where you'd be hauling a large fuel cell and dual spares.

I have FOX shocks and I love them, but they are valved and charged to my application. I also don't have stock leaf springs or shackles.

The stock replacement Bilsteinís I had are the shocks that would overextend. Call up Off Road Warehouse and they can recommend a shock.
