Unhappy A Shock Question

So I'm looking for new shocks, and the last time I ordered them I bought Procomps. Now Im trying to order them again and I can only find the 0-2" lift ones and 3.5-4" lift. I have a 3" lift and dont really know which to order. Has anybody ran into this problem or maybe just have some input if I get to long or short of shocks?

Thanks,
Dan

Bilstein, SAW and Donahoe I've heard good things about. If you're talking about the rear usually Procomp usually has the shock longer by whatever they say the lift is. It all depends on what your setup is. If you just have an add a leaf I might go with the 2" lift shocks as with the 4" lift shocks you may have to get new brake lines and they may bottom out early.

Does anybody know of any good shock that isn't as expensive as bilstien? Kinda going for those ok 40$ shocks.

You're going to end up replacing the "ok" shocks multiple times. Save up and get some decent ones. Like Ziggy said, try out Bilstein, SAW, or Donahoe.

I have the ProComp ES3000's and they work Ok for me. I think the length is off on them too, next time I need shocks, I'm definitely going to measure with the suspension fully articulated and see what compressed/extended length I need.

Pro-Comp, Rancho, etc. are the cheaper offroad shocks. OME isn't bad either from what I've read but in the $70 range. The difference is night and day if you ever drive over washboards. With stock shocks my change tray explodes into my face, with the SAWs it just feels bumpy. The upside to spending over $100 on a shock is many of them are rebuildable meaning you can find good prices on them used.
