I hope to get a brand new Ram this year so I don't plan on keeping the '04 much longer. I noticed more and more recently that all 4 shock absorbers are shot and I do mean really, really shot (originals). So not wanting to spend a fortune on better replacement shocks since I hope to get rid of her, what would anyone recommend for OE replacements?

Thanks!

I was pricing out a 3/4 ton but realized that the plow is being sold with the truck and I have a friend who said he would plow for me anytime (someone I trust). So right now I'm planning on getting a 1/2 ton because they do ride much better than the 3/4 ton and a quad cab short bed as well.
