Old Man Emu is the best out there by far. They are a little pricey though, from what Ive heard its worth it.

Other than that I heard Doetsch are soft, but I am still waiting for my shocks to come in the mail to tell you first hand. These are dirt cheap though.

Agreed that OME are probably the best. on a cheaper budget, how about those rocky ridge shocks? I've heard they're pretty good quality for the money.
