Shock Help

Hey Guys,
Im currently looking for new shocks for my 05 250 with a 3.5 in leveling kit on 35in tires. But i do not know what size of shock or brand to go with. I do light towing, mostly highway, rarely taken off road. Not looking for anything over the top just something nice and not to bad on the pocket.
btw i do not have a way to measure my shocks as i am currently deployed.

20" XD Revolvers 35" mt's
zoodad mod
JVC dvd touch screen
2 10" re sx subs in custom center console box
SCT with custom tunes and EGG probe
Muffler and cat delete


soon

arp studs
etc..

Bilstein are the way to go.

SCT, no studs...yet, Dual OEM intake air filter housings, Banks intercooler & intake elbow, Banks exhaust system, Windrunner ported intake manifold, Bullet Proof Diesel remote oil cooler & thermostat, AirDog2 (plus a couple spares), Power steering filter (Amsoil dual-bypass), MagTec deep ATF pan, Electric oil pre-lub pump, Dakota Digital gauges.
