Shock Opinions Please

I am new to the form and was hoping to get some advice. I have an 04' Limited with a 6.0.......which i only drive to tow a 11k pound boat and trailer. It is time for a shock change and was hoping to get some input. My thoughts were to run the Rancho 9000 in the back, and 5000 in the front.

Advice is appreciated!!!!!

Kevin

Standard HD's work very well for standard height trucks. I can pull a 37ft TT fully loaded (about 20k combined) and the truck rides like a caddy.

Bilstein - KYB - Rancho - Monroe - Edelbrock Automotive Truck Shocks and Struts - Shockwarehouse.com has good prices. Probably under $300 for all 4. You can move up to the 5100 series if needed.
