Bilsteins..but don't expect much improvement without changeing at least the front springs so you have some compression travel.

Bilsteins will be the best choice and should run you just about $65 each shock, give-or-take a couple of bucks. I recommend the yellow body shocks, I have those on my Tundra and they are fantastic shocks.

..as I said in my PM just a front spring change to V codes would do wonders..$350-400 pair at the dealer..

Spend a bit more and get the Bilstein 5150's. I love them. Have had them on several vehicles that Ive owned, and it never ceases to amaze me the change in ride it makes.
