Another shock / steering stab question

Hey folks,

Getting ready to replace the factory "rancho" shocks on my 2010 F350 6.4. They appear original and I have just over 95K on the truck (bought truck with 82K on it) So, I have gone through the previous threads on shocks and steering stab. however circle back with long term thoughts ? Truck is used for daily driver during the week and pulling 32' RV on the weekends. Would like to get a replacement shock that would suit both uses.

It appears to have the stock steering stab. however it is not farther up / higher on the steering linkage ? Not sure if this is it or something else. Is there a need for dual steering stab if you are running stock tires ? OR will the single unit meet the need ?

The single stabilizer is fine for stock tires. Carli uses a single high pressure high mount stabilizer for their lifts and everyone using them seems very pleased with it. As for shocks, I just put bilstein 5100's on my dad's work truck and he loves them. Truck is stock height with 285/75/18 tires. I also ran them on my 6.0 with a leveling kit and they are a big improvement over stock. Especially, the Fx4 package Rancho's
