What shocks should I run???

So I currently have a 93 yj 4.0 with a 2.5 in lift with 31x10,5x15 bf all terrains. This thing is super bumpy on the road so I believe it's time to change the shocks. I currently have the pro comps on there but I'm not sure what I should change them to or run the same ones. Pro comp told me to run the es3000 series because the 9000 nitrogen ones would be more stiff. I also thought about the rancho5000. Ideas or thoughts please??
Oh also my rear leafs don't have arc they used to have, I was gonna have someone rearc them, is that a good idea or what should I do?

I really like my Bilstein 5150s. I've run Bilsteins on most everything I've driven in the last 10 years without any problems.

I just installed the procomp ES9000's on my 4.5"RE lifted YJ and think they ride great. If I had the cash billstens would be choice.
