You could prolly find some shocks off a sport model? Seems like that would be the cheapest way. Also look at some sites and see what you can find for used WERS or Bilsteins. Maybe Craigslist or RaceDezert.

Shocks are one of those things that "you get what you pay for"...

Sport shocks are good..... WERS, Billsteins or Afcos are the best performing shocks for a stock Rhino. The Afcos are the best priced out of those 3. I would get a set of Afco's from Steve over at Makin Trax.

The stock shocks are at one end and the Afco's are at the other end... the sport shocks fall right about in the middle.

Ditto what Mike F said. You're on the right track...Stick with the three shock brands mentioned above. They are PROVEN to work really well.
