What shocks are you running?????

I just got my leveling kit from Sky Manufacturing and was wondering what shocks you guys are running with your leveling kits? And are you happy with your choice? Thanks

I guess you guys are talking about the 5100 series shocks? I see they run about 80 a piece. Is there any place that you guys recomend? Thanks

I got my bilstiens from shockwarehouse.com, they advertise on here and you can get 5% off if you type in some code (its in the ad). I have a leafpack leveling kit so I didnt get the 5100's but I have the BST's and they are awesome.
