Integy = bad. Stock shocks or LST shocks are the best for bashing.

hi

i would say stockers are good with minor modification.
the lst conversion is nice. but when jumping hard they tend to bend the shock towers if you run plastic because the impact is one-sided.
another possibility are truggy/buggy shocks with multiple mounting shock towers e.g. nova or innovative. but aluminium shock towers call for aluminium bulks because otherwise with a hard impact you will brake the bulks and diff cases all the time.

cheapest would be to stay with the stockers.

bye
