Removing dual shocks

Im looking into removing my dual shock set-up from my 2002 F250. From what ive read the single shocks ride better and there overkill. I bought the vehicle with this dual pro-comp MX6 shocks. Ive tried to find a thread of people taking off there dual kit has anyone done that before im trying to see what work is involved.

2002 F250 4x4 7.3L 4 inch lift, 35 inch BFGs, Edge tuner, Diamond eye 4" Catback, S&B Intake, Helix rear speakers, Focal frontspeakers, Kenwood double din navigation

2010 Dodge Challenger R/T: Magnaflow Cat Back Exhaust, LMI IV Intake, Diablo 91 Tune with Eibach Pro suspension

I would just get some new shocks that are valved for it. If yours are not blown I would just run them. They are not that bad, each shock doesn't have to work as hard as one single.

If it were me I would keep the dual setup. I have a dual setup on mine and i love it. Ive had lots of compliments on how nice my truck rides and handles. Just get the right ones valved for your truck.
