Shocks on a budget

I put a leveling kit on my truck a few weeks back. I noticed it didn't take much to compress my front two shocks. Actually when I bolted them back on I had to pull them open. Like most people these days I'm on a budget. So I'm looking between rancho rs5000, tuff country sx9000 or rough country nitro 9000. Any options? Also any other good shocks in the same range?
