Question Best shocks for 05’ F-250?

I’m getting ready to pull the trigger on a new set of shocks for my 05’ F250. It’s got set of worn out Rancho’s on it right now……no telling how many miles they have on them, but they are shot. The thing really rocks around a lot when I’m pulling by camper….and overall just rides terrible.

I’ve been searching through the forums, and it seems like most people either recommend some flavor of Rancho or Bilstein shocks…..but the problem is, most of the posts I find on shocks for the 03’-07’ Superduty’s are way back from the mid/late 2000’s. Before I go ahead and order a set of shocks, I just wanted to see if there was anything new out that would be worth a try…..or are the same options that were available 10 year ago still pretty much the only options I have today?

Oh…and this is for a stock ride height truck…no lift on it.


Thanks

Re: Best shocks for 05’ F-250?

@Zmann likes the Rancho 9000's and they are adjustable. For stock height I would be inclined to run Monroe shocks. They are lifetime warranty and valved for the truck.

01 f-250, Standard
Rev tech 4" lift, 37" military wrangler Mt tires
KC diy 66, Full force 160/100 and custom tunes from PHP
Banks intercooler and full 4" exhaust, Diy S&B intake
Diy quad feed, Hydra, Isspro boost, pyro, and fuel pressure
3/0 battery cables with military style terminals

Which model of Bilsteins? I think they have a 5000, 5100, and 5200...right?
