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?

'05 F250 SRW 2WD. I pull a 25' four horse trailer 1 - 2 times a month.
