Question Another Shock ?

I'm am needing new shocks on my 04 F350 crew, and I am looking at getting the rancho RSX shocks new (for a great price) or at least I think so. My question is are they a good shock or is there a better shock I should look at?
I do mostly pulling a 22' snowmobile trailer and a 35' travel trailer as well as some off road during hunting season.

Donahoe Racing has the best shock. Rancho are crap in comparison.

I would suggest Rancho RSX shocks if you go with Ranchos. Have you considered Bilstein?

I would definately check into the bilsteins. I just put a set on mine about 3 months ago and am very pleased with them.

At the auto parts store. Not meaning to be a smart ***.
Bilstein shocks are not real cheap, but they're good quality. Heck, shocks are not super expensive anyway and they greatly affect how your truck rides.
I've heard nothing but great things about Bilstein, and I have my own opinion of Rancho RS5000's (too stiff).
