Looking into new shocks for the ram...suggestions?

Both my rear shocks broke today on my 03 ram (rotted out). Been looking at summit online and it seems like theres a million different shocks to fit it. Any suggestions?
Its an 03 1/2 ton 4x4 QC SB

Thumbs up

I went with Bilstein 4600 all the way around on my standard height 2005 Quad Cab 4x2 . These 4 shocks along with a Hellwig rear sway bar made literally the difference between night and day with regard to control and high speed handling .

Bilstien is my choice for replacement shock also.

But if you don't want to put "lipstick on your pig" sorta speak, Monroe makes a good replacement shock for a decent price. Light truck Monroe gas-matics for around $25 a piece.
