shocks for 2006 f350

Ok guys I have a 2006 F350 SRW with a 6" lift under it. I am looking to buy some new shocks for it as i think the old ones are shot. The thing rides like a tank (ive actually rode in tanks with a smoother ride). It currently has Pro Comp ES9000 front and rear. Is this something i should stick with or is there a shock out there that will ride a little softer. OH and the rear lift is done with all blocks not add-a-leaf so that should not be making it ride any harder I don't think.



thanks in advance guys

Bilstein 5100's are very popular. I have been running them on my trucks since 2006, great ride and quality.

I thought mine were shot too, but I pulled them out and they didn't have any dead spots. I ordered urethane bushings for them from energy suspension and changed them all including the torsion bar bushings. Wow just like a new truck and it cost me like 30 bucks

The only way to get them to compress is to put a trailer on the truck with a car on it and then the shocks appear to start working correctly and the truck rides comfortably but I really don't feel like towing 5000 lbs everywhere i go lol

That's not your shocks. Your shocks control rebound....
