Looking for Shocks

Hey I think I am gonna be proactive and order some shocks before I "Need" them. Truck is an 02 ccsb 4x4 with a leveling kit from tuff country. Nothing heavy on a regular basis, lots of HWY driving, and will probably be getting a 5th wheel in the next year or so. Would like some suggestions and price on all 4 corners.

I put Rancho RS-5000 series on my truck - I pull a 5th wheel. They seem to be working well. IIRC, they were in the $50-60 range.

If you have the Tuff Country leveling kit we actually have a shock specifically for that application.

Tuff Country Ford 2.5" Leveling Kit (w/ Leaf Packs)

Follow that link and scroll all the way down the bottom to the related products. Those will be the perfect match for your truck. When you add the 5th wheel you will get the best ride with the actual helper springs on the rear.
In my opinion, shocks are based a lot on personal preference & ride quality. For me, I drove my truck empty and never towed. I never cared for the benefits of the higher end shocks or noticed that much of a difference.
