Check out IKON Racing shocks. They used to be Donahoe Racing. I bought their shocks 8 years and 130,000 miles ago and they are going strong. They have no external resevoirs, have internal bumpstops, are self adjusting, and come with a lifetime warranty. I had my rear shocks start leaking, at different times, and they replaced them without issue. I actually purchased them through Wheelers Offroad online our of Oregon. They are great guys to work with. At the time I paid $75 each. I believe model 7100 up front and 7105 in the rear, the rears being 2" longer. I only run 4" lift, but they are good for at 6", maybe 8. I actually think the rears are too long. I'd get the same front and rear. the 7100 front shocks have 10" travel. There have been some times I wished I had double up front, but not very often. Pretty much only when I've been going faster down rougher backroads. I even caught full air a few times....with my camper shell, tools, etc bringing me over 9000 lb total, and the shocks still did good enough, but in that case I really wished I had doubles. When the time comes to replace them, I'll double up. On road and heavy towing, they hold up just fine.
Call or email Wheelers Offroad with any questions. They'll help you.
