Question Time Ford New Shocks?

OK, I have 62,000 miles on my truck and I feel I need to replace the factory front Rancho shocks. They seem to be getting bouncy. I did my research and I'm going to buy the Bilstein 5100's. I ran them on my Dodge and they worked well for my needs. However, I have two questions for those of you who have had to replace your stock shocks.

1.) How many miles did you get on your stock shocks before replacement?

2.) Before I buy my shocks.....who has the best price?

Thanks,
Turbo Kidd

Stock shock life varies, depending on use. I'd say you're at the longer end of their useful life.

As far as price, just shop around. There are sponsors on this site that have good prices. I buy a lot of my stuff from Amazon.

I ran mine until about 110,000kms. The weren't too bad but I figured it was about time.
