Stock Shocks

I know this has been asked probably a million times, and ive searched, but I feel like Ive gotten a bunch of different answers looking at the different topics but..

Whats the best shock to go with to replace stock shocks?

I have no lift, dont have 5th wheel or do very much pulling, just completely stock suspension. If it matters, I do have a MM2 plow that I plow with.

Also, where to get them at the best price would be nice too if anyone knows. Total suspension newb here so

All input welcome.. thanks!

Anything we carry would be OEM upgrades. Bilsteins are the most popular shock we sell for trucks and suv's.

Thanks for the replies everyone..

Probably gonna go with Bilstein's..
any other opionions?

Edit: Now Im confused:
Shockwarehouse.com gave me three options for Bilstein in my truck:
1. for double shock setup
2. for lifted 3-6
3. for lifted 2-4

my truck isnt lifted. Just completely stock. Help! lol
If anyone could send my the exact link to what I need, or a part #. Sorry for my lack of knowledge (probably stupid questions).
And no, I'm not putting them in. A friend is..
thanks!

Well almost, those numbers have updated:

Front: F4-BE5-6681-H7 (manufacturer back order until 10/31).

Rear: F4-BE5-6246-H6 (available)

They are $75.70 each (gross), add 5% forum discount and free shipping to the CONUS.
