Replacing shocks

I need new shocks bad on my '01 350 PSD, 288k with original shocks. I plan to level the front in the future but right now I need new shocks to stop the hop and poor handling.

What are the best shocks and if I put on new shocks now can I keep them when I lift the front or will it take a longer shock with the leveling kit?
