Want NEW shocks for 6" lift??? Any Ideas?

Gents,

I have a new 2012 F350 4x4 with a 6" Rough Country lift installed - while I LOVE the truck, I am not as pleased as one would hope with it's ride.

While I am not new to having lifted trucks, I am new to using a Rough Country lift. I have the N2.0 shocks right now, and I would like to know what are some other options from people with suspension lifts experience?

Also, I just talked with a guy at SDTruckSprings.com and he said that the Rough Country shocks are the ONLY shocks available on the market for a 6 INCH lift?
I even asked him specifically about Bilstein 5100s since I have read alot of good reviews on them, and he said they were not usable in this situation...

Is this true??

Thanks,

Mike

Man it really all boils down to how much you wanna spend. I'm running the new pro company pro runner shocks on my 4in lift and they seem to be doing pretty well. Now they are now resi shocks but they work for me. And whoever told you that Bilstein don't make shocks for a 6in lift is an idiot.

You were fed some BS! Icon/Fox/King all have shocks that work for 6". What you have to consider now is what you want out of your shocks, and how much you want to spend.

I went with the procomp mx6 resi shocks and I really like them. Def better than stock. Although I've never ridden in a pick up with king or icon shocks.
