Which 5100's??

I have a 2006 F350 SRW long bed with a 2.5" leveling kit in the front and the stock blocks in the rear. My question is... I see several different 5100 series bilsteins (0-1" lift, 2-3" lift) and don't know which ones to get. The ones for 2-3" of lift say perfect for leveling kits, but my leveling kit uses spacers and the stock coils so I am using the stock shocks right now. Should'nt I get the 0-1" stock, or smallest size 5100's to replace mine? Thanks guys! Also, these 5100's are worth getting over the "heavy duty" yellow and blue bilsteins correct?

I beleive the Icon shocks are close to the same price as the bilstein 5100`s and the Icon`s are valved for our trucks, might be a better choise?

I actually have a question very similar to this topic: I bought an '03 F250 with a 2'' leveling kit in the front (and 305 70r16's all around) and I'm looking to replace the shocks. Stock shocks, at least in the front, aren't a good idea, right? I'm just looking for stock performance, cuz I can't afford performance.

I agree 100%. Even though the ICONs are a little more, I have been both routes, believe me, go with the ICONS!!
