Rear resi worth it?

So i am in the market for some rear shocks and i was interested in the rear resi but is it really worth it if i just have SAW coilovers up front? My options are the 5100s, SAW 2.0, or Icons w/ rear resi. What do you you'll think would be a good match? Thanks

I have the 2.0 SAW coilovers up front and the billys in the rear and I think they match up very well.

Not sure if they're 9s or 7s but if they're all in row like that i think the same size all the way across looks better but i think the 9s in the middle gives it more of a prerunner look so depends what your going for, but in the end i think its a win win situation
