Whats the best shocks

I have a '05 F-350 dually that mainly sees towing duty. Lately I've had to drive her more regulaly. Heres the problem, on concrete highways I develop a front to back hop because of the expantion joints in the road. Ive tried letting some air out of the tires to no avail. so I am going to put some now shocks on her. Any advise for the best shocks you guys are running? I have no lift or leveler, shes all stock. I just want a ride that dosnt spill my coffe on the way to work. The truck was used as a farm truck before I got it so I am sure theyve never been replaced. Thanks for your help.

I am looking forward to a good answer on this also. I end up wearing my coffee by the time I get to work also. The hop is not TOO bad when you have the right passengers, though.

Im not terribly impressed with my Bilstein 7100s, they ride like crap. Granted it could be a valving issue or the spring. The valving is what was recommend by Bilstein for a 3/4 ton. I have soft ride springs in the back and everybody else I have talked to that use these springs have no complaints. Just FYI.
