What shocks to buy!?

I have an 02 f250 with 4 inch lift and 325x60x18 open country at's. looking at getting some new shocks and a steering stabilizer, what's my best option? Not looking to spend a lot of money. I have been looking up rough country and have heard some good things about them.

Icon's and or Bilstein's...maybe a little pricier than what you're looking for. She's lifted, so if you go cheap, not gonna last long. Another forum member also pointed out to me that Bilstein also sells steering stabilizers.
