Which Shock?

Well im lookin at 2 main shocks right now. Either the rancho RS9000 adjustable shocks, or the Bilstein 5100 series shocks. Most have told me to get the bilsteins, but i just want to see what you all think. I'm open to any suggestion under 100 bucks a shock. If selected other, let me know why and which shock you would prefer for under 100. Trent got me pretty hooked on those bilsteins.
