Question shock advice

Hey fellas.
My shocks are wasted. I have one leaking oil in the rear and truck riding like crap lately. I heard from CaryT(and lots of others) the Bilsteins are the way to go. My question is do I go with the 5100's or the 5150's or 5150's up front and 5100 in the rear?

I like the piggy back look, but I'm more concearned with the ride quality.

Any input would be great.

As far as Bilsteins go, I had them on my 01' Lightning & they were great.

I looked at Bilsteins for my EX, but they were $20-$25 more per shock so I put Monroe's on my mine and I am happy with the results.

the 5100's is what i would put all the way around on your truck.... i have the 5150's and they are alright but the 5100's are a better choice for your application...

Thanks Raul. Can you PM me a price on the 5100'S?? I have a 4" kit. The Pro comp ones on my truck seem too big?? There is only about 4" of compression shaft visible. Seems like it should be more?? Maybe that is why the rear blew a seal??
