I just got some Blistein 5100's. Just put them on. There a little stiff on the road but there nice on the rough trails.

I guess it is as simple as searching their website for your model and year. Thanks!

After finding out that those shocks are made right next to RE I realized all shocks are the same unless u go with fox or something like that. So I just ordered RE shocks with my RE superflex lift but thanks so much for the input

All shocks are not the same. I had ProComp ES9000s and they ran really stiff. I went with the Bilsteins and could actually enjoy the ride. However, there are other good shocks out there.
