Mixing shocks

Im picking up some used ome nitro shocks and 881 springs for a good deal. Would it be bad to buy new shocks for the rear? Also would it be bad to mix brands?

it will not be"bad" you will just get a ride that will not be as controlled if you where to get matching shocks.
If the front is a 46mm piston gas charged mono and the rear was a smaller piston gas charged twin tube design that has less control then it may upset the truck going over certain uneven pavements or ruts.

Well I might just go with OME in the rear too. Are they much more than the billies for just the rear?
