Need new front shocks. 8 inch lift dual shock setup. Opinions and input please.

The front shocks on my 2001 F-250 have seen better days. Some have started to leak and the bushings are worn out. So its time to replace. I dont want to spend a ton on fancy shocks, its not a show truck. She gets used as a tow rig, and the bed is used frequently to haul just about anything.

So what are your suggestions? I am thinking Rancho 9000, but I would like to look at less expensive options. I don't think I will need the adjustable valving.

Suspension stuff, engine stuff, reliability stuff...
Some other stuff I'm forgetting...
