Ok So I am currently running A beltech 4/6 drop I am in the process of swaping to DJM spindles and Hotchkis coils I am told the hotchkis coils will give me between 2.5"-3" of drop. I am running a 245/50/20 front tire which is about 29" diameter. and a 255/50/20 rear, which is about 30" diameter. I have edelbrock IAS front shocks but i still bottom out sometimes. I have monroe Air shocks out back aswell. I have also added a rear helwig sway bar and I am adding a Front helwig sway bar which should be done tomorrow. I am looking for a nice stiff ride to handle like Im on rails. I have looked at Summit/Doestechs, KYB Gas-A-Just's, Bilstein Heavy Duty Series. What do you guys reccomend?

Summit brand shocks. Have them on mine. I can get you the part numbers tonight when I get home from work.

My Monroe Sensa-Tracs are fairly stiff, although some don't like them. Part number is 37137 for the front. Bilstein also makes one that will fit, F4BE5-6460H0 for the front as well. I've never personally tried those though. It depends on personal preference, I like a stock ride. The summit brand shocks are well made, but the road feel was "jittery" as best I can describe it.
