I want to get some new shocks for my truck but not sure what to get because of the lift (8 inch fabtech).. just looking for some info on what everyone is using and some prices.

yes, I have been looking online but there is such a big price difference that I am not sure on what to order. Don't want to to go broke replacing them but still want quality.

They are wore out, the Rancho shocks say that they are for single applications so can I just put 2 on each side?
