rustys coils 2.5

I'm thinking about getting the rustys 2.5 coils. I've heard the shocks that come with the kit aren't very good. What would be some good shocks to go with this set-up?

Black diamond is out of business so I don't think you will be ordering shocks from them.

Pretty much will have to get hydro shocks. They will ride a bit on the rough side but that is the only option at that price unless you find a used set.
