OK, another shock question

I am wanting to get new shocks for my stock 03 F350 3x4 CC with DRW. Most suggest Bilsteins. Who has replaced their stocks with better shocks, what did you get and why?

Thanks,

I am in the same boat. I need new shocks for my F250. My lift came with some real POS shocks. I ran them to the final mile. I have been told to get Blisten 5100's. I would like to know what people have done and recommend.

Im pretty sure I will go with Blisten 5100's or a Dual shock Kit.

Thanks for the input. I'm going to go with the 5160 series on the front and 5100 series in the back.
