Leveling Kit Shocks...

So, when I installed my leveling kit. it came with these shock brackets to keep the factory shocks. Well, they started popping and making noise so I yanked them out. But stock shocks only have like an inch of travel. What shocks do you guys recommend? Thinking bilsteins just didn't know what kind? Size? and other info

Most of the time people run the 5100 series. They sell shocks for stock to 2" of lift, 2" to 4" and so on. Best prices I have seen have been at shock warehouse and they have 5 and I think 10% coupons online. I haven't checked with vendors but I guess they would price match

When I had a leveling kit, I just left the factory shocks in, no extenders. No problems.
