73-80 chevy 1500 lowered, shocks?

Hi, My 75 c1500 is lowered about 4 1/2 inches and i am in need of some shocks for the rear, I know i can get lmc ones but was wondering if anyone has found some that will work without spending so much?

If you have not changed the shock mounts and if you have not C notched the truck then any factory replacment will work... may not be ideal... but it will work because the factory shock absorber is deisgned to go through the full range of suspension travel until the axle bottoms out on the facotry bumpstop.

The stock shocks wont fit cause they cant get small engough, I no longer have the factory bump stops. I flipped the axle over the springs.
