bilstein vs Kyb

I have kyb monomax on the rear of my truck. Are bilstein going to be a better worse or same ride? When i got my truck the shocks were shot so I have really nothing to compare too. I have gas-a-just kyb on the front. I'm not sure if they are too stiff or what.

get shocks that are custom valved to your 250. they will ride much better than an off the shelf part. i have icon shocks (made by edelbrock and bilstein) on my truck and it rides great for a lifted dually. there are many other companies that offer shocks valved specifically to 250s/350s. my opinion, call icon and get a set of shocks for your height truck
