Disappointed in Bilstein

Let me start by saying Hello to all... I have posted before but never started a thread. I really enjoy the forum and all the useful info I get off this site, so thank you. Next, I need some help finding new shocks to replace some Bilstein's that have both busted with less than 30,000km on them.
I drive a 2008 F350 with an 8" Rize lift (soon to be adding a 2.5" levelling kit) and I need new long travel rear shocks, any suggestions/prices would be appreciated. Also, I am in Canada so let me know if anyone ships here.

Thanks in advance!!

2008 F350 Harley Edition
10" Custom Rize lift
King coil-over shocks
20" REV wheels
40x15.5x20 Toyo M/T
SCT Tuner soon to be Spartan w/DPF delete

I'm pretty surprised you had issues Bilsteins are known for being high quality. I had 60k on my last set and they were still fine. If you didn't have the right length they will blow out pretty quick.
