Default new shocks

Hey guys ive been looking around at new shocks and im thinkin about getting some rancho rs5000's. Do any of you have them or have you heard anything about them? Im looking for shocks to give me a smooth ride but i also need them to be able to handle well off road. Not too much but occasionally. And also i have a cracked leaf spring so any ideas on what to do about that?

the rs5000's will give you the same ride as stock basically.

As for the cracked leaf springs, pic? You may need to replace them.
