Best shocks for an 02?

Hey everyone, I've read a lot of good things about the Rancho 9000's and Bilstein 5100's as replacement shocks. I got a 4 inch lift on my 02 crew cab, and I'm ready to replace the shocks on it. The ride quality is awful. I know it's not a caddy, but this is ridiculous. Will the Rancho 9000's fit on the older trucks?

2002 F350 Crew Cab Lariat, 7.3, AEM Brute Force intake, 4 Inch MBRP Straight Pipe with 6" Tip, TS 6 POS Tuner, 4 inch lift, 20 inch rims, 35 inch BFGoodrich All Terrains, LED tail lights

Bilstein 5100's are pretty sweet shocks for a reasonable price

Another vote for Bilstein 5100's. They are a top notch shock and perform very well.

Bilsteins. I have them and love them. They did not make as noticeable of a difference in my truck as they did putting them in my old BMW. I would buy them again.

2002 f-350 PSD, 4x4, cc short bed, 6spd, ccv mod, airdog, AIS filter, isspro ev and scangauges, detroit TT, ITP boost annihalator, ITP RR, bellowed up-pipes, ats housing, turbomaster, 3.5 dp magnaflow, very happy with ultra smooth and linear PHP 50t, 80DD and "whisper" tunes.

I stay away from rancho unless I want dislocated discs in my back.
