Best shocks for a lifted F250

Hey everyone, I currently am running ProComp ES9000 Shocks with my 6" lift, I am currently shopping for some new shocks. Anyone have a suggestion? What shocks does everyone else have or have tried? Good or bad, lets hear it.

Always heard Bilsteins were the way to go, but no personal experince. Still rockin my un branded shocks, but with the leafs it's so stiff they don't have to do much. If you aren't looking to spend too much I bought a set of Doetsch Techs for the wife's Jeep (lifted 4") and they aren't bad and the Jeep guys like em for "budget" shocks. Might see if they make em for a SD with 6" of lift.

Yea, I'll have to look, my room-mate has a 05 cummins, with a fabtech 8" lift, and he has all bilsteins, he likes em, but I cant hardly see the benefit, since I have driven his truck also. I am just trying to see if there is anyone who has ever seen a true difference and see what is best. Its so hard to tell without buying them, and I dont feel like wasting like 600 bucks.
