    Gabriels, G63438 in the rear, 30" long, 12" travel, super-inexpensive.

    Going to run them up front with Ford towers, too.

    G63437 will fit in the front mount and work with a 4" lift so says the manufacturer.

    I don't think any standard type shock is worth what they want for the Edelbrocks so no experience with them.

    I have the IAS stuff on my Malibu and love them!

    Those shocks kick butt on a sports car, I'm just not sure what they would do for a 4x4.
    They ride really nice when I'm just bumming around town, but if I get into some high speed turns and such they seem to stiffen up really quick and make the car handle a hundred times better.
    The only problem I had with them was they aren't too hard to blow out. I've replaced the rear ones twice already on the car. But it has always been under warrenty so no biggie.

    Many stores stock Gabrial shocks. Autozone is a big one, although most any Auto parts store will carry either Gabrial or Monroe.
