which shocks for 93 2wd pathfinder?

Hello,
I posted bellow that I was looking at a 93 pathfinder. I bought the one I was looking at on Saturday. After driving it I noticed there is a substantial amount of body roll. I am looking for suggestions for good overall shox, it will be used to go to HD and maybe using it to take mountainbiking or camping. I am looking for something that is good for the street. The shox I am looking at are the compro ES3000 or a KYB's GR-2, I do not want to put Bilsteins as I will leave that for the bimmer. Any input would greatly be appreciated.
TIA

I had Rancho RS9000x's in my pathfinder before the swap, they seemed to work nice, 9 adjustable settings. The bilsteins are supposed to be the best though.

sorry for my ignorance but what are the Rancho RS9000x's?. Are they similar to the Compros?

What the hell's a compro? and come on if you dont even know what Rancho shocks are, this probably belongs in the Newbie section.

I am familiar with the Rancho shock the RSX, I do not know anything about the 9000's, I assumed sirmanguy the comparison was to that of the KYB or compro. I am just trying to get some opions on what I should get for my type of driving, something that will last. I am new to the SUV and all I have ever driven is bimmers, I just did not want to put money into an X3 or X5 to use as a utility vehicle.

I can't let it continue. They are called "Procomp" not "compro". KYB are said to be the closest to a factory feel, so if you want a stock ride, go that route. The es3000 are close to a rancho 5000, which is what I have, and am very happy with. They are a little stiffer but not too bad.

packman thanks for clearing things up. 4 wheel parts has front and rear for $125.00 so I was not sure what kind of shocks I would be getting for that price, as far as quality goes.
