Another Shock Question. 8" Lift help

So my front coils and front coil buckets are looking rusty and so are my Pro Comp mx6 shocks so what I plan on doing is repowdercoating the springs and buckets and buying new shocks. I wanted the Bilstein 5150s but was told they aren't valved for the front coil spring setup on my 05 and that I wouldn't be able to use them in the rear either. I looked at the Pure performance Prodigy 2.0s but they are a little to pricey. What are my options here for shocks? Is there a dual shock hoop that will give me more shock options and eliminate my coil spring and bucket that are rusting anyways?
What travels am I looking at for the front an rears? 14" front 16" rear? It's a fabtech 4link 8" lift.
