New Shocks for truck

I have a 97 F-250 4x4. I don't do any serious offroading in it. Just the occasional. Looking for a little bit of a softer ride. Is it a waste of money or would new shocks do that? Still have the factory shocks with 160K miles. What shocks do you recommend? No lift on the truck...

I am sure with 160K on your shocks, some new ones would be nice.

i ordered some skyjackers for my 02 f250. Only paid $150 for all four. Not sure how well they are as i havne't finished installing them. But they can't be worse than my blown ones on there.

Contact Cary from CT Performance about some bilstein 5100's. I put a set of 4 on my obs and they made a huge difference. If you really want nice ride quality with a 250 though you need a sas with a RSK and sd springs with the above shocks. That makes for a great ride.

I will do that one day when my other vehicles stop breaking and I have all my money to spend on my powerstroke.

Since you have a ttb axle nothing will really help the ride quality till you do a RS kit SD springs and a D60..Good shocks can't make up for a bad suspension design.
