help on shocks

Got a 97 250 with 95 dana 60 and its time for shocks. i have stock f350 leaf springs on my daily driver. what do you guys recommend for good shocks? i looked at other threads and everyone had either lift springs or rsk. i was told Bilstein HD but i want others opinions.

I put new bilsteins on my truck and in doing that found it had newer kyb shocks on it teh previous owner had put on. It now rides considerably better with the bilsteins.

Gun control is like trying to reduce drunk driving by making it tougher for sober people to own cars.

I put Rancho RS5000 shocks all the way around my D60 and overall the truck rides much better now than I expected. I have Bilsteins on my 01 SD that are nice, though I did have to replace one after a failure with about 7500 miles miles on them.
