What shocks should I run? 4" springs, 1" boomerang shackles, 1" body lift

I am running brand new 4" Skyjacker Military Wrap Springs, 1" (lift) Skyjacker Boomerang Shackles, 1" Body Lift, 35" Tires, and Bushwacker Fender Flares w/ fenders trimmed. What are the best shocks to run considering that this is a daily driver first, off road vehicle second? I have a set of Skyjacker Nitro shocks on it now (about 6 months old), but not sure if I like them or not. Thanks again.

If I'm not mistaken only the suspension lift matters for shocks, I am very happy and so is the wife with the superlift superide shocks.

I am running Bilsteins. Very happy with them. Have been running them around 5 years or so.
The only real way to tell which shock to run is to measure.
The best way is to take the shocks off. Find a buddy that has access to a forklift. Lift each tire up and measure both the articulated tire and the one that is compressed. Do this front and rear. Call shock people and give them the measurements. They should be able to give you a part number for front and rear.
Call vendor and give them the number.
