    My 2000 f250 beauty is finally feeling the wear of her original shocks. I've had rancho shocks before on my old truck, they were okay. But, I have heard a lot of good and bag about bilstein shocks.

    Wondering what everyone had replaced there old shocks with?? pros and cons of yours are welcome.

    Since a shocks job is to only slow the amount of bounce (it in no way is to support weight, unless you have installed aftermarket air shocks, coil overs, or your truck came with air ride), really, any quality parts store will have a good OE replacement. Personally, I like NAPA parts and would buy mine there. But Autozone, advance and others like them will also have decent shocks too im sure.

    I used to run Rancho until I tried Bilstein 5100's, been running Bilsteins the past 10yrs.

    I like my Monroe shocks. Don't break the bank and have life time warranty not that I have had to replace any of them yet. Believe they are Reflex series.

    My 02 F-350 is better than new with the Billstein 5100's. Even my wife is happier.
