Which shocks do you recommend?

I have an 05 F350 that sees mostly street duty, a 10K# trailer and occasional use at the sand dunes?

I would get bilsteins. They offer good performance for a manageable price.

ya Bilsteins are the best. 4wheelparts.com has a really good deal on Procomps. I run ES9000's. If it wernt for the lifetime warranty I would get Bilsteins, they are better.

Built engine, rods, pushrods, cam, springs. Meth, turbo, injectors, fuel system, oil system. 3 disk billet, billet shafts built trans, 6.0 IC, exhaust, intake. Latter bars, gears, system, tint, HIDs. You know the typical stuff to make a 7.3 get out of its own way... dont brake.

Fox's new Factory 2.0 Performance series is a sweet shock! I would say it beats the Bilstein and is around the same price!

Got them as early product samples to try out from the factory, production is supposedly to start in late May. So far they seem great.
