Default I need new shocks

I have a 99 supercab 4 door. I load it with my concrete tools all week and dirt bikes on the weekend. what kind of shocks does anyone recommend? also how about an add-a-leaf ? it says it raises the back an inch and a half, would I need one of those 2" spacers for the front or what? thanks guys any ideas would be appreciated

There's a few different companies that make good shocks. The Bilsteins that came on the Level II are good. For your purposes, an extra leaf is probably a good idea. Yes, you'll get some lift from it. But you might want to leave your front end alone. You could lift the front to level it, but hauling bikes and tools are going to sag you back end, so why not leave the truck with the rake and let your payload "level" the truck?
