Ok guys hi there, as you can see i am new to the forums but not fords or diesels in general for that matter.
Anyway i just picked up a 08 f350 (i'll put some pics up.) i sold my 06 chevy duramax and got this, LOVE IT!!!!

Besides the fact that i need to de-chrome it and white everything out, i am trying to replace my shocks to something a little better and better looking, i really like the fox with ressi and similar brands like that, do any of you have suggestions and possibly fitting measurments you can share with me and head me in the right direction. i am not even sure what kind of lift it is to be honest with you but i will post some pics and some of you vets will know i am sure. :)

Thanks guys

Icon, Bilstein, King, etc.. all make very nice shocks....depending on the look you want, and your budget.


We sell them all, let me know if you need any help.

^What he said. Best bang for your buck would be the Bilsteins.

I think I read somewhere that those were made for a different application than a coil spring and shock pair..... Dont quote me on that tho... May just look into that....

#5150 will not have the correct valving for the front. You would need to get #7100 to have that. We can get you the correctly valved Bilsteins. Measure the installed length of your shocks..we don't go bu the guide books as to many times its incorrect and we want you to get the correct fitment.
