But also, depending on the finances, we're looking to get a car that's more fuel efficient for the 300 miles I drive to and from work each week. So I'd say something that'll last a good 60k to 70k miles, and that's cost-effective (a.k.a. "cheap" without actually saying the word "cheap").
I ran ranchos on mine for a while, 5000 series if I recall. They were fine

For dampers, you're going to notice the quality more in road driving, not off roading - with the exception of high speed off road.

I know nothing of the shocks in question, but wanted to add this.
