Bilstein 5150's are the standard fare I think.
They also makes w/ remote rezzies I saw on another truck. Not sure what the model is but he was singing their praises.

How much are you looking to spend? My guy in Sacto could build you some sick monotubes. Here's what he built for the race car (fronts)

Yeah, you're not turning, but weight transfer - more precisely transfer speed - makes a ridiculous difference out of the hole. The ability to adjust compression and rebound damping would be an advantage for you, although you'd have to work on it to get the benefit.

I work on the race car's setup as much to control transfer front to back as I do side to side.

Don't worry, it's not your bandwidth being used up. :D

I have been looking at the FOX reservoir shocks. I have seen a few sets and they look great. I have not found a good place to purchase them though.

they arent that much cheaper than the Bilsteins. I paid 240 for 4 shocks, that isnt a bad price.

I've never run the Bil's...I'm a fan of KYB though.
When I was playing with F150's...I started searching around on shock specs for my truck. I was gonna run Bil's because that's what the Lightnings came with and I had a similar suspension set-up...then I found that the KYB's for that app were the same in every way and quite a bit cheaper.
I got the red KYB's for my 250 and they're by far the best I've had on it.
They flat ass blow away the Monroe Reflex shocks they replaced.
