Shocks for a K1500 Suburban

Hi there everyone,
Well the title says it all. I am needing shocks for my 1996 4wd Suburban. There was a thread recently about shocks, but of course I cannot find it now. I am pulling my 1969 Overlander, the Silver Belle, and just want a quality shock for when I am pulling her and obviously for when I am not. Pearl (my Suburban) is my daily driver too!
I hope I have posted in the right place. Thank you all in advance for your time!

Al

I've also replaced with Bilsteins and they work great.

Alright, the consensus is Bilsteins! Next question is what series or style or model number?
I do love the brain trust we have with this forum!

I used the 4600's. They are the street version of the 5100's. The ride is so much better than the factory AC Delco electronic shocks. They were virtually worn out.
