Rear shock with AAL

Is there a good shock I can use to maintain stock (or better than stock) ride quality if I add a Toytec AAL?

I've tried reading up on the 5100s, the 5125s, and the N182 (from OME) but don't see much in the way of comparisons or evaluations.

Thanks!

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

The OME shocks are a little softer then the 5100's.

Do the OME shocks have the same travel as the 5100s?

And by "softer" do you mean the truck feels sloppy, or it compensates for the harsher ride of the AAL?

Yes, they are very close in stroke length. By "softer", they are still more controled than the OEM shocks, but not as firm as the 5100's.
