Through an arrangement with Llama4x4 I can do Rough Country shocks if you want a quote.

I have Pro Comp ES1000's too Amanda and they are fine but benefit from a pair of Martins repositioning brackets.

As will any brand, but a friend told me that Pro-Comps have a lifetime warranty if you keep the receipt, but only if they are undamaged and just leak. You'd have to research this with sellers such as KAP.

The others are all good too so it might be a case of getting what's cheapest or easiest.
