how do i know...uh..shocks?

how do i know which shocks to get? I think I am pretty set on a 2" budget boost and it sounds like everybody really respects OME. So the question is, is that if and when i go to the spacers, how do i know which shocks to purchase? I found a website except there are TONS of different eye/eye measurements. Is there something I am missing? Please help a newb out, Thanks guys.

Here is the website with the different measurements.

Also, anybody have any OTHER suggestions on a different brand of shocks?

If your going to go with the top of the lie shocks then you should look into getting a better lift kit. You will end up doing it later anyway.

With a 2" BB you newd 2" shocks for 2" of lift.
IMO OME is the best allround shock.
