I put Skyjackers on mine and I love them. I had Rancho rs5000 on for about 30,000 miles. Skyjackers are a better ride IMO. They were about $40 each.

How much do you want to spend? This will determine what you should buy.
I have DR sigs and think they are the best shocks I have ever used. They are valved for a Superduty and have a great warranty. They are also coated with a clear powder coating so they will not rust out.
The down side is that they are about $90 each.
