I believe I purchased mine from the guys at Top Gunz Customs, a sponsor on here!
4 Bilstein Shocks 99-04 Ford Super Duty F250/F350 4x4 4-6" Lift @Top Gun Customz
That set should work for you! (if you are in fact implying for your sig of a 4" lift with a leaf spring front end truck!)
Or Maybe I got mine from Truck Toyz Performance? I don't recall 100% but I have both of them saved in my "favorites" and both are sponsors here!
Fronts for you!
Bilstein 5100 - 3"-6" Front Lift Dual Shock Application - 1999-2004 Superduty 4wd - 5100 Series (Lifted Applications) - Truck Toyz Store
Rears for you!
Bilstein 5100 - 4"-6" Rear Lift Application - 1999-2004 Superduty 4wd - 5100 Series (Lifted Applications) - Truck Toyz Store

Hope that helps you out some! I'm sure there are many others, but those are just two companies that I have had good experiences with on here!

I'm running them and I like them. People complain that they ride too rough on a leaf spring suspension...But it's a truck. I got my from Shockwarehouse who is also a vendor through the org.

Any shock will ride hard on a truck that uses leaf springs front and rear. Its just the way they are designed.

I also went through Cary at CT Performance.... I bought all of my suspension from him, and I would definitely recommend him. Great to deal with all the way around
