Shocks for 95.5

I know yall are gonna b**** me out about getting cheap shocks!
But i was looking at these and wondering whats the difference in these 2 shocks? Hydro VS. Nitro

http://skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=27351
http://skyjacker.com/product.php?ProdID=27239

If these are a serious "no no" what do you prefer for some cheap/OK shocks? Procomp, skyjacker, rancho, etc?! Dont have $300++ for shocks. And i dont do any crawling or hardcore offroad! I play in the mud and live on a ruff dirtroad! Needing new shocks on all 4 corners also! Not just front or rear!

Any help/info is appreciated!!

Spend the coin and get some Bilstein 5100's all around. Amazing ride and lifetime warranty.

Yeah if you take a baseball bat to them and light them on fire, you can still get a new pair!! Never have to buy more shocks in your life...unless you lift

What's your price range? There are some bilsteins at decent prices out there. I'd probably wait for someone selling stock TRD bilsteins, if you want a like-stock setup.

well my truck is lifted 3" in the front and 2.5" in the rear. just wanting a little better ride then what i have! bought the truck with around 180,000 miles and now its got somewhere around 250,000 and we have never changed the shocks so have no clue how many miles are on them. the shocks were worn before we lifted it and it just made it worse but didnt really worry about them until now cause the rough dirtroad has gotten old!

My God man! get the 5100's! Those shocks are probably completely gone. Did you lift it yourself?

I'm surprised you haven't ripped them apart or broke them under full compression. You're not supposed to run stock length shocks on a lift. I'm honestly surprised you're still driving it
