Hotchkis TVS Help?

I'm seriously looking at this set up! It looks like it is awesome and has it all minus shocks.
Anybody have this rig or knows anybody who does, this is the cheapestI found:

I think I will still need shocks Yes/NO?
IF yes what brand? Hotchkis are $85.00 a pop that seems stiff. I've found others for much less.

Just about anything made by Hotchkis is high quality stuff... you won't be sorry with that set-up. Don't go cheap on shocks... Bilsteins and Edelbrocks are in that price range as well.

Well I bailed on the Tvs package.. after ship and shocks It was around 1400 so I back tracked some posts and went with the helwig rear sway bar the Hotchkis 4" drop leaf springs and 2.25 front coils and bilstein shocks. I plan to install my self so thanks to Mr.Hemi I have the sway bar down but any advice on the install for the other would be appreciated!!!

Make sure you sand that puppy real well... it really is a lousy finish.

Yeah I think it would be better if they just primed it and left it to the buyer to paint.
