Shocks for 2wd Excursion

Discovered today that two shocks are leaking...big shock right?

Anyway, what works? I'm a boring stock kinda guy, but I do like high quality long lasting parts. I tow a 30 foot travel trailer on weekend excursions which adds about 800 pounds of tongue weight on the rear. Upgraded to 10 ply tires for some extra safety margin when towing.

Don't do any serious off's 2WD and heavy so I tend to stick to the road more traveled.

What should I get and where? Any chance there is an adjustable shock that might take care of the sag I have in the rear?

My rig is a 2000 2WD ExcursionPSD

If you just want a good reliable shock Monroe makes some good stuff.

I have Pro Comps on my Ex all the way around, I like 'em. I have had Ranchos in the past, they were fine too.

As far as your sag problem, a shock will not help that, springs or an add-a-leaf will for sure. Hit up some of the site vendors, these guys have it all, and I'm sure will give some good advise as well.

i agree. the shocks wont help the sag... you could add some air bags in the rear to get that thing higher... as for shocks bilstein are one of the best...

I needed more height for boat towing with my 2000 2wd ex. I put air lift in front coils and air bags on read. Lifted the machine where it needed to be. Rides and handles better. Not much help out there for 2wd drivers like us. Just looking for heavy duty rear shocks now.
Ps you will have to drop the coil spring for the front installation. It's Not that big of a deal though.
Good luck
