Best shocks for leveled truck?

I'm installing a daystar 2.5 leveling kit on my 05 f350 srw...I was wondering what would be the best shocks to use nothing crazy but something fairly priced and durable.,,

The Bilstein 5100s seem to be the shock of choice for most applications. Reasonably priced and perform very well for most applications.

I just installed a 2.5 leaveling kit on my truck... Its the spacer type that fits over the coil springs and it came with an extention for the shocks so i can use the factory ones... If im reading this right, this unit will take the place of the extention on the front shock mount and will work in the rear after i install a f350 block..

Thanks

Bilstein 5100 series seem to be the most popular. You might try looking at the Pro Comp Monotubes that just recently hit the market. Nice shock.
