Looking for bilsteins for an 05 off road truck

Put a rough country torsion key level kit on the truck and I love my truck, no rake sitting nice and level. Now I need shocks and was going to go with either pro comp or rough country. I would really like the bilsteins, but looking around for the 05 they do not have the 5100's for my year, any suggestions for pro comp or rough country? Thanks

I also have nitto terra grapplers on factory 17 inch rims that look pretty nice. I went one size bigger for 285 70 17.

if you have already turned up your keys you just need the regular shocks, not the adjustable s....and i wouldnt go for rough country shocks...people praise their lift kits but seems like the shocks dont last.

Pretty sure the rear shock you want is this one:

P/N 33-104652, 5125 Off-Road, travel 11.0", collapsed 17.0", extended 28.01", eyelet ends:EB1* EB1* 1/2", valving 255/70, shaft dia. 14mm

BUT, you'll want to measure your stock shock length to verify!

Summit Racing should have the bushings and sleeves. They're a PITA to press in. Use white lithium grease on the outside of the sleeve/inside of bushing ONLY if you try to do it yourself on a press, but you'll probably want to have a professional install them.
