Shocks/ leveling kit

I have a 2005 F350 XL. I want to level the truck out and I just had the front end rebuilt and noticed the shocks are a bit over due..

Anyways, any advice on some shocks and leveling kit? not looking to lift it just level the front end so 2.5" probably

Bilstein 5100 series Bilstein did i say Bilstein?

Here ya go.....

Bilstein shocks and struts for cars and trucks - Shockwarehouse.com

Can you get cheaper? Sure can you get better for the money? not in my book.

I've had these for 3 years and wouldn't use anything else.

You can always rely on Bilstein 5100's, and you will notice the difference of using these shocks versus the stock ones.
