you dont want to just change the shocks, you need to change the springs as well. all the shocks do is prevent you from having to much bounce. air shocks will work, but you will blow them out, try to find some big block truck springs and somebody to install them. when are shop did it we charged 250. all the way around. this will give you the lift and maintain some ride quality.
