Replace stock Ranchos with Bilstein 5150???
I recently got a Ready Lift 3.5" leveling kit (Hybrid SST 3.5" front and 1" rear) put on my '07 6.0L F350 SRW CC LB Lariat FX4. I'm running 37" Nitto Trail Grapplers on the stock 20" rims. So far everything seems ok (with only a little rubbing on the radius arms), except my shocks seem worn out and I'd like to put some better ones on.
The Readylift kit keeps the shocks very near stock spacing (via extensions), so I don't need longer shocks. I really like the look of the Bilstein 5150 shocks and would like to try those on if they make appropriate ones for my application. I hate to pick a shock because of looks,
but the Bilsteins are supposed to be good too.
Would they ride ok on my truck?
Does anyone know which Bilstein 5150 would be the right one? If they make one the right size, are they valved correctly for my truck?
Thanks for any help!!!
