What shocks???

I am looking to buy new shocks. The Rancho's I have now I am very unhappy with and want a better shock. I want something that will give me a good ride. I know I have lift coils so the ride is going to be a little rough but these SUCK!!

Yes I wheel
Yes I drive on street

So I want something for both. I was thinking maybe a coil over setup. Not really sure what that entails but I am going to do some research on it now.

Just wondering what the best shock for me would be.

Any and all suggestions!!

I have Crapcho RSX and they suck except when I land from a jump. I try not to jump it any more so I want something better. I'm going to try Bilstein this time around.

I put KYB Monomax on my 2000 4wd.

Couldn't be happier with them.

Firm, yet nice. Wife even commented that the ride is so much better.
