Advice on shocks

I have a 2003 f250 6.0- with 60,000. My question is how good/or how long do stock shocks usually last? The second question is if I replace them what is a good brand? Theres a ton of options out there and every company claims to be the best???? Any recommendations? I drove a freinds f350 and the truck rode like a dream. My truck is stock, I put a set of firestone transforce on and am running about 60/63 psi in them. Thanks for the feedback !

BDS is a good brand, Monroe shocks are good, Ranchos RS 5000 not the RSX,
Then you got the Edelbrock extreme with external resivior. and of course the bilstiens. There are others but that is a list to pick from

monroe reflex is a very good truck shock they give up a little ride comfort but they are very good and stiff for towing this is what i put on mine and you can get them at napa for around 160 to 180 for the set of 4

if you run big wheels/tires get a shock with gas in lieu of oil. the oil will cavitate and not do a good job dampening the load.

i have bilsteins and they are the best thing i have ever ran.
