Need new shocks, any recommendations?

I'm new at this forums, so sorry in advance if i'm posting wrong. Anyway i have a 1999 Ford Ranger RWD needs new shocks so far I'm thinking of getting the KYB Monomax or the Monroe Sensatrac, with load adjusting on the rear. My budget is $230. Anyone know if these shocks are good or is there a better choice out there? I mainly use my truck for commuting to school and I'm planning on adding a camper to the back. Thanks.

stock rear shock mounts are not meant to coil over load adjusting shocks

it is better to have your rear leaf springs re-done to handle the extra weight of a camper in the box
