Bilstein Shocks for Stock Truck?

Had my truck inspected a couple weeks ago in order to purchase an extended warranty (currently has 63k). They informed me that my left rear shock was leaking and the serpentine belt had a few small cracks. Is it worth spending the money on Bilsteins on an all stock truck? I do pull a 26' TT weighing around 6,000 lbs. about eight times a year.

I plan on using Bilsteins on mine. I've got 63k too and plan on changing them in the next week or two. I only pull my TT 10-12 times a year.

I put Bilsteins on mine and it rides way better than the stock ones did.

I need shocks also. Same issue DR shock body damp. Current ride quality not too good.

Any sponsor want to chime in with suggestions, pricing, and shipping for us?
