coil over on Rize 8" lift

Suposed to get my lift installed this week it is a Rize 8" with leaf springs and dual sterring stablizer. My question is should I wait untill I can afford the coil overs or just run regular shocks maybe with a res?
My only reason for adding coil overs is the cool factor my truck only sees speed bumps in the parking lot. I dont off road one bit nor do I plan to.
another question is dual shocks any good for the back or is that just for off roaders? I again just like the way they look. any advise or knowledge is greatly accepted. Thanks.

I would stick with a standard shock with a remote res. They will ride just fine on the pavement. As for dual shocks in the rear, if you were to tow alot with a lifted truck I would get a dual set up, but if you just daily drive the truck then again, I dont see the benefit.

thank you for your reply. I do tow but nothing heavy. its just a 16' X 8.5' toy hauler with T-shirts and display inside. (I have MMA shirt company) couldnt even guess the weight but not alot. How easy will the back sag on a 8" lift?

I couldnt tell you how much the back will sag. If its not much weight it may not sag very much. If it does sag you would be better off putting airbags on.
