Rancho Shocks

So i want to change my shocks i have a 2008 dodge ram 1500 Laramie 5.7 it has a 6" suspension procomp lift so i think if i remember correctly that i should buy stock size shocks i want the Rancho RS999788 the cheapest i found was 174.91 with free shipping from Amazon Ranchos second best is the Rancho RS5274 witch i found on amazon for 43.71 with free shipping. Is there a big difference between the Rancho 9000xl series and the 5000 series and is the price a little high on the 9000xl?

Its a 6" ProComp lift and a 3" body lift that my truck has.

Thanks guys.

Thanks for the replay. Do you think that price is also good do you know of any place that might have them cheaper.
