Best shock upgrade for under $400

Looking for something to make my truck ride better. I've got a level and bilstein 5100s and it rides terrible. Thinking maybe fox or 5160s or something like that.

Thanks

Don`t know if my wheel, tire combo or dual steering stabilizer or both makes a difference but my truck rides great on the 5100`s

5160s would run about 170 each. It's basically a 5100 with a reservoir. I talked to bilstein in length about these and they told me it's marketed for off road and I would not see the benefits unless I was driving at lengths off road or on wash board roads. What kind of leveling kit do you have? Spacers or new coils? If coils are they linear or progressive?
