I need some advice on what shocks do go with. I know there will be a huge dispute over brands. I have a 97 F350 thats stock height and I want to put in some nice shocks that are valved right for the truck. I tow alot, average weight around 7k-10k. What is a good shock that will really do well both loaded and unloaded? Thanks for any input.

Well from my understanding there are different valving setups that are better/ worse. I dont know what valving specs would be better for me.

I have used both on a few vehicles and the ranchos have worn out fast and really don't compare. Bilsteins were a few bucks more and WORTH EVERY PENNY!!! Now that experience is on a Tahoe, not an OBS but I am fairly sure it would hold true on you app as well.
