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?

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.

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!
ALu
Just mounted a set up on my -03.

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.
