Shocks and steering stabilizer??

I drive a 2008 F350 SWB with a 2.5" leveling kit up front and stock suspension in the rear, i have 95k on the clock with stock shocks its about time for new ones, can someone tell me what shocks i should use and stabilizer?
i know my dad replaced the ones on his tahoe with aftermarket and it became really squirrley down the highway, should i just go back with stock?

any vendors feel free to send me some pricing for the whole setup shipped to 78408

If I remember correctly when I orderd mine it was 0 to 2" of lift. I have a 2.5" leveling kit on mine w/ a add-a-leaf in the rear. Check w/ CT Performance, they can get you fixed up.

I know know if your truck is 2wd or 4wd but here is the links to the 2 pages for everything we carry for your truck


If its the 4wd the 5100 will be the way to go with that leveling kit. The backs you can also use the 5100 they are 0-1 inch of lift

Let us know if you have any more questions.

Contact one of the ORG sponsors for your shock needs. I went with Truck Toyz who helped me figure out the Bilstein 5100's I went with for both my shocks and dual steering stabilizer. Cary T is also a great guy who will help you figure out what you need and he's great to deal with.
