Shock ideas

Hey guys im new to the jeep world, ive been a Ram guy all of my life.
I own a 1996 grand with no lift and one size larger than stock tires. im looking into replacing all 4 shocks and am curious as to what the real jeep guys think about what brand or type to get.
I am very appreciative to everyone participating in this forum, you are all an outstanding resource in my jeep experience, especially the posts about the coolant sensor bad fault on the VIC. lemme know what yall think.

For stock height I have had good experience with the Monroe Gas Magnum shocks (the yellow ones, the blue ones are standard car duty).

That is if you can find them. The Monroe site doesn't list them at all.

I have the Bilstein HDs and they are fantastic. Light years better than Monroe.

Bilsteins. You'll pay a bit more, but it's worth it.

I actually need to figure this out, I have a jeep and just bought it from a buddy, I know so much about it besides how big the lift is and what kinda shocks it needs, I know it has bilstein but I think the shocks are done, gonna need some springs too, I think it's got a 4", and the tires are 33x12.50x15
