Icon5 need help on deciding new rear shocks

hey guys got a 1992 3.0, i use the truck eveyday and in all aspects of driving.
i load it heavily,sometimes tow a 2 place quad trailer, and drive in manhattan a lot(potholes suck). been reading about everyones suggestion on bilstien but wanna see what else is out there.i also wanted to lower the back a lil kinda even it out but was wondering if that will take away from the amount of weight i can put in. also wanted a set that would give me some better handling, this when i turn hard doesnt feel like she going over on its side.
thanks hope to hear everyones suggestions

Hmm, I can say that when I went full KYB's around.. the ride got real stiff.. but in a damn good way.. even with a 3" bodylift, I fully feel it tucks into corners WAY better than stock used to be.. and on bumpy rides its as smooth as ever.. absorbs the bounce real well!
