I like KYB shocks... but have had good luck with Rancho RS 5000's as well.

I currently have Pro Comp ES9000 on mine lovin em so far.
Only been on a week so cannot say how long they hold up but the application was for 1-2" of lift since I'm gonna be tweaking tbars as soon as finances allow for bigger tires (already have 3" body lift but that doesn't affect shocks)
