There are several different bilsteins available. There are the 5100's which are nice and work well with stock or lifted trucks but will be valved more twords the offroad truck. There is also the yellow bilsteins (cant remember the model number) that are OEM replacements that ride nice to. I have also ran monroe relex shocks on other Ford trucks and they always rode nice.

Icon's Signature Series shocks are nice. I have Bilstein 5100 series up front no my truck with no complaints. Stock shocks in the rear.

We can get you setup with either Icons or Bilsteins..if you really want to improve the ride quality you need a 2.5" level kit with 4 link arms..much better ride quality. PM me if I can help we have been selling Bilsteins for years...

Bilstein is the way to go. We have had great luck with them on stock and lifted applications. They are usually the first thing I swap out on all my new trucks, makes all the difference in the world. We dont have them on our site yet, but we carry their entire line. For those of you looking for a set, shoot me a PM or give us a holler.

Is it the same ones for a truck with a small/average lift kit?
I wanna say yes but was never certain.

Some people run the standard Bilsteins (yellow body/blue boot) on trucks with leveling kits, others run the 5100 series (brushed aluminum body/black boot). I have never ran the standard shocks on a leveled truck, but the 5100s ride great.

Rancho 9000, they have 9 varyations for adjustment. I run them on my superdutys and they are great.
