"cheap" shocks

So after doing new front rotors, pads, and both rear brake lines, my shocks are now leaking . Does anyone know of any remotly decent "cheap" shocks for a 4" lift. DR/ICON as much as I would love to have is way out of my range. and I would let them keep leaking but its getting worse by the hour haha. Thanks

I've been pretty happy with the bottom of the line Fabtech shocks on my truck. They are significantly better than the stock Ranchos, they don't beat you to death. They were only $160 for the set of 4 when I bought them.

The Current Truck (Oct-2013 to Present):
1999 (Early) F-350 Lariat, CCLB, SRW, Black/Tan

7.3L Powerstroke, 4R100, 4x4, 3.73, 37x13.50-18s, '05 Axle Swap, 6" Fabtech lift, GTP38 "D66" turbo upgrade, SCT 4-position chip with custom tuning by me, Straight Piped 4" down pipe through 5" dual stacks, N-Fab full length triple steps, Pro-Tech cab guard and tool box, louvered 5th wheel gate, Hella 500 Fog and Driving lamps, much more to come...
The one I'll miss, (Mar-2009 to Jan-2014):
2000 Excursion XLT 4x4

6.8L V-10, 4R100, 4.30, 285/75-18, 271whp / 388wtq
The one I won't, (Jul-2005 to Sep-2012):
2005 F-350 XLT, CCLB, SRW, 4x4 FX4
