Need some experience

I am in the market for shocks at the moment. I have a blown out shock and need some replacements sooner rather than later. I am thinking that a nitrogen shock is going to be the way to go. I pull trailers quite often, however when the truck is empty I am afraid the truck will ride like a rock.

I know everyone is going to jump on the Bilstein wagon... I am not really keen on dropping $300+ dollars on shocks. So they are really out of the question at this time.

I have looked at Rancho 9000xl, but I really dont want another thing to fiddle with as far as adjustment. I want a self adjusting shock that I can bolt on and go.

I have looked at the Procomp ES9000 and they seem to be ok. Has anyone used these? How do they hold up towing? How to they ride empty? I am leaning towards these for the price and immediate availability since 4wheel parts is just down the street.

Any others to consider?
