Shock advise

Well my f250 has a 75 hp chip muffler delete and a 6637 intake. When I drive on the expressway 70-80 mph the rear end feels very lose to me especially over bumps or strong wind. Obviously I could just a few hundred pounds of weight but am trying to avoid that to keep my mpg's up. So my question is what is a good shock to run with a stock ride height to help plant my rear end.


Maybe I just need a big wing on my tailgate

I recently replaced all my shocks and my steering stabilizer with Monroe Gas Magnums, and I couldn't be happier. Of course the stockers had 150k+ so they were pretty much gone, especially the front end. It rides like a completely different truck now, very smooth and no hopping around or vibrations.

Bilstein shocks and fox shocks are good, but aren't cheap. Rancho shocks are used on the FX4 models, and are what I have on my truck. They ride stiffer and seem to handle towing well also.

#5100's are not for stock height trucks....we can get you silvers that will fit..
I just need the installed length measurement bolt to bolt of the shocks with the truck on the ground, I like to insure correct fitment.

PM me if I can help.
