shock choices ???

Guys i want to replace my shocks and i want to know what brands you guys like. I was debating between bilsteins and rancho's. I also was wondering will the shocks work if i put different lift blocks on the rear axle? I wanna put the 3" blocks on my truck to make it sit up higher and possibly put an add a leaf in the front.

Bilstiens will work but youll need a diff one if you do a leveling kit which is good... because the stock height ones are the ugly yellow ones.. if you lift your truck 2-3" you can use the 5100's and the silver cooler looking ones

Raul whats the best way to make my truck sit like an F350? Isn't it just the rear block that has to be changed?

Thanks raul. Eventually i'm gonna do this. I want to get it done before spring time when i will be hauling around my camper and boat. Can you quote me some prices on those add leaf kits? Do you think the rear should be a spring or a block? I don't really need more suspension just more height. I don't wanna make it ride rougher than it already does. Thanks again.
