    im running the exact setup up front and i'm running gabriel shocks off the back of a k5 with 4" lift. i forget the part number, but if you go to autozone, it will be in the computer for 4" lift they were about $20 a shock. for the rear im running 14" travel pro-comps, they were about $35 a shock from summit racing.

    well i like my gabriels :) if a had a super nice rig, id get bilstein 7100s with remote resovoirs at $200 a pop ;)

    the 5100's and the 5150s are both great shocks. but more than i wanted to pay
