Looking to repalce shocks with new FOX shocks any help?

I currently have a 4" RCD lift with blistein 5100 series shocks now on the truck. I bought the truck that way and not sure how long they have been on and the truck is an 05. I am looking into the FOX resevoir shocks and cant find a thread that gives good info on using the 2.0, 2.5 or the 3.0 style shocks. Any help would be great. Not doing any serious off roading but want a good solid shock with decent road ride as well.
Thanks.

RCD 4.5" lift with Airlift system, 4" MBRP turbo back minus KITTY & MUFFLER, AFE Stage II Pro Gaurd 7 intake, SCT X3 with Custom tunes, EDGE CTS for gagues with Pyro Probe, ARP studs, BPD Egr, Updated FORD oil cooler, Diesel Site Coolant Filter, AirDog II, 6.4 Banjo's, Upgraded BLUE fuel pressure spring, autometer in cab fuel pressure gaugs, Mag Hytec rear Diff cover, Full HID Xeon lights with HID Foggs, Recon LED tail and 3rd break lights all on 35X12.5R20's Toyo M/T's, XD Misfit rims.

If you want some sick T shirts buy Fox Bro, my wife gets great tanks and short shorts and and they look great..... they produce shocks on the side, sure... not going to run them on my rig....

Call KING SHOCKS... they are in your backyard, they make there own springs in house,(fox uses Eibach---street racing springs)... they are not in the business, they are the business.... you can't order from them direct, call Marty at Truck Toyz 888-Protoyz and they can place your order and drop ship to you.... Marty has build superdutys for years and will get your valving right on for your truck......... PM if you got any questions, ive got a lot of experiance in this area... my trucks currently on stands getting a true long travel setup made.......

Going thru making sure everything is long enough to droop out.... then trying to accommodate the longest shocks/coils i can by raising the upper mounts as far as possible

What are the specs for the coilover shock and spring? I have 3.0x10 Coilover shocks with 375x24x350 springs on the front. When I spoke with King, they said that the 350# spring rate should be perfect for my F250 and would not recommend going lighter. I did inquire about going dual rate but they said that for a 24" spring they don't have anything that would work to do a dual rate set up. Please post up pictures when you have them installed.
