Shock replacement ?

Hey everyone! I have about 95K on my truck and am wanting to replace the shocks on all 4 corners. I will only be towing with the truck (5th wheel and boat) but most of the time I will be town and highway driving.

We have brick streets around here and do a lot of highway driving unloaded - so what is a good shock that offers the best ride possible??

It all depends what you are looking for......do you want the the best bang for buck, adjust ability, and/or good looking, I ask about looks because some shocks work great but are just plain ugly....

weird - i posted a reply to this last night and it disappeared.... apparently i was having some internet issues

anyway - here's what I posted..

I guess I look at Rancho's as being for lifted trucks??? I basically want a good riding shock - not too worried about towing as the weights won't be very heavy for this truck at all. Cost is somewhat an issue, but I will likely be doing the install myself so saving some there.

Well if cost is some what an issue then I would say bilsteins if you don't mind the yellow, Rancho 9000's if you like to adjust yourself and Edelbrock if you like self adjusting
