Question Need new shocks

Hey, It's time to change shocks, the ride is not what it used to be. What is the best shock for performance and comfort? I don't do much off-roading, on the beach sometimes but mostly highway driving. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Monroe sensa-trac are very good if you dont do that much offroading.

I just put those in my '95 2WD Ranger. Also new Moog coil springs. It's firmer over the stock worn out suspension. But I haven't driven too many Rangers, so I can't comment how great they are versus other setups, or even good OEM shocks.
