2wd OBS Dually owners...best shocks and springs for the money?

I work my truck everyday hauling cars with a 43' car trailer. My truck has 223,000 miles on it and I'm looking to improve the ride.

I've been comparing shocks from search's on here and just different house brands through part house websites.

I'm looking for honest first hand experience from people who have installed what they are recommending.

KYB Mono Max's get a lot of good reviews on another diesel site I frequent, but when comparing them to Gabriel Max Control's from my local auto zone a lot of the technical info on the internet matches up.

A lot of people just say "Bilstein" and yeah a lot of 4x4 guys run them and like them, but I want to hear from the 2wd crowd. What have you found that works?

Also have any of you replaced your coil springs and seen a ride improvement? If so where did you purchase the springs at?
