Default 6inch Lift need shocks!

Hey FRF i have a 1999 ranger 4wd with a RCD 6" lift kit, which came with bilsten coil overs in the front and bilsten shocks for the back.

i was wondering if i should just get 6" lift shocks and coil springs for a better ride because the coil overs seem pretty rough off road. so let me know your opinion.

also i cannot find any springs for shocks for a 1999-2001 ranger with a 6" lift, cannot find any at all please help me out thanks

have to checked with 4x4 shops? I know with the 4" superlift I have, I can only use superlift shocks. You may have to measure and match them at a shop dude
