New Shocks - 2013 F250

What would be the best replacement shock for a stock height 2013 F-250 - only upgrade would be Nitto Terra Grappler MT LT 295/65/20 on stock rims.

Just looking to improve the bounce and ride over the stock Rancho shocks.

Would love to do a full Carli system but cant justify the price to the war dept(wife) at the moment.

King, Fox, Icon....just to name a few. All depends on how much the "war department" will let you spend! If it were me, I would save the money for new shocks and use it for that new Carli system your dreaming of. After all, it is a 2013 f250...it should ride somewhat like a truck. Good luck and.

Bilstein is another option or continue to save for what you really want.

My wife has given up on me, lol.... unless its something really expensive. However I still manage to sneak them in and deal with the consequences later, lol.

Maybe compromise and go with something in the middle. At this point, anything would be better than your stock shocks

Well let me rephrase, If I choose the Bilstein or Fox brands. What are the particular specific model/sku/ part# I should be looking at to purchase.

I have read some on this forum about the Bilsteins 5100's, would these be a good choice for a better ride over the stock shocks? Would any other model# be a better choice? like the 5160's??

Personally, I would go with the Bilsteins just because I've had great success with these in the past. There are lots of options out there so do your research.

5160s are a great shock imo, better than the 5100s but cost 100 more ea as well though. If you want bilsteins and are ready to drop approx 190ea, the 5160s are great.

I do not have experience with fox or icon but here good things about them as well.

I agree. 5160's are slightly better than the 5100's whereas Carli's version can bring a big improvement.
