I have a feeling you were maxing out the shocks, which can be a very bad thing. They only have a couple inches of travel.

I would look into just replacing the whole thing with the kits mentioned above. Those will be the best bet.

I would not recommend it. Those shocks are way to long you will still max out the shocks way to fast. Just replace everything with a kit so that you get rid of all that crap under there.

Yeah but I can't spend over $800.
But in theory could I just add larger coils?
Could my arms work with that? I'm not sure if they are stock arms or not and I think larger coils would still be better then what I have now.
How much larger in coils do you think I can go with this setup?

In theory, you could go with coils and shocks.

My suggestion is go to a local off road shop, or find a off road club near by. Either should be able to diagnose the issue. May be as cheap as buying four correct shocks, slapping them on, and driving on. Or maybe even something simpler. They can help you learn as well, hands on is better than a forum. My 2'''

Alright thanks for the advice guys, I went to a 4x4 shop and they told me they would replace all the parts (arms, springs, shocks, links, ect) for a 4inch lift kit for $1100.
Seems like a good price.

Sounds like $900 too much if all you need is shocks. 4" lift is way overkill w/33's

The guy said 4 inches would be too much for the stock arms.
And the shocks are still 2 inches too much for a 4 inch lift.
Edit: and my budget has changed, my dad is pitching in

I'm curious as to what brand lift they are offering to install for that price.

Dunno yet but all the people at my school got their jeep/truck lifts there. They have some serious lifts. They even create custom parts like bumpers.
