Toxic shocks are the worst drop shock on the market they have a very stiff harsh ride and don't last very long. Doetsch Nitro Slammers are the best way to go. I sell tons of them to people with static drops and bags. DJM Calmax shocks are also good and I have heard decent things about the Belltech Nitro 2 shocks. I sell all 3 of these brands. If you are interested shoot me an email to brian@illusivefabrications.com and I can help you determine the best way to go with your truck and suspension setup.

People use hardbody shocks on the rear because they are about 2 inches shorter than a ranger shock. But that does not mean they will work on a custom air ride setup, there are many factors involved.

I would run stock shocks before those they are similar quality to the Toxic shocks.
