I use adjustable Koni Classics fluid shocks. None will give you ride height. Thats your springs job.

Stay away from KYB gas a justs. they are too stiff! Much better options available today then when I bought mine many years ago.

I've been happy with the basic shocks from NAPA for $17.00 each. Also, get a set of replacement bushings while you're there.
