New Suspension help

I need new shocks, my stock ones are done. Was going to go ahead and change out the springs too while in there. What is a kit that would be closest to stock? I know there will be many opinions on brands like OME, ect, ect.

1) I am keeping stock tires
2) No interest in lifting
3) Smoothest on road ride
3) Closest to stock as possible

Has anyone ever used the Blistein kit from Rovers North?

Thanks for the help!

Are you keeping the old coil springs and just replacing the shocks? Because the coils are a big part of keeping the stock height and ride. Aftermarket shocks such as Bilstein will give a performance improvement over the originals.

Well I thought I should replace the springs, unless there is really no need to. If it's only shocks, which would fit my needs?

I just put the Fox replacement shocks on my D1, extremely nice ride. A lot of people seem to be happy with Genuine/Gen HD/ OME springs. I like the Terrafirma springs personally, not super happy with the shocks(all terrain, prosports seem to be a lot nicer)

I'm in the middle of a suspension job myself. Going with OME nitrochargers.
