What shocks should I run?

I have a 04 f 250 crew cab with a 4 inch lift and 35 inch tires. Just hit 148xxx miles on it and am thinking of changing out the shocks hopefully get a little smoother ride out of it. So what does everyone recommend?

everyone will probably say bilstein, although a great shock, they are a tad stiff. they do seem to control the leafs on these trucks rather well.

that being said, contact CT Performance ( cary ) he is a member and will get you fixed up

FWIW I am running the Bistein 5125s and the ride seems pretty good, a little stiff but they are leaking already. I'd say they have less tha 15,000 miles on them.
