Default Shock Absorber Recommended

I have a 2005 Ford Ranger Xlt v6 4.0 4x4

I'm thinking of replacing my shocks. Not looking to lift or lower. Just replace stock ones. I won't cry if there's a lift gain possible though.

Any recommended brands ,style, tips or other parts that should be replaced at same time?

Thanks for your help!

Shocks do not change ride height....never will.

That being said, I was VERY satisfied with Bilstein 4600 shocks back when I was stock height. If more budget minded, I haven't heard any unsatisfactory results with Gabriel shocks. Have never been a fan of Ranchos...
