    A mechanic friend swears by...

    A life long Mechanic buddy who appreciates quality really likes the KYB line of shocks.He had a set on his 1988 F350 diesel and pretty much everything else he owned...

    If you get Bistien's they have a lifetime warranty, if you buy them aftermarket.
    but as a factory option they are covered under your truck warranty.
    And I doubt you'll ever replace them.

    I was going to replace mine at 10 years old with, 170,000 miles on them. My factory bilsteins were better then the new ranchos I had bought. So I put them back on and got my money back, I'm still running them today.

    If you want to do some jumping in your truck look at some Fox nitrogen shocks but expect to pay $1k a corner. LOL

    Yep, go for the best.

    There's almost no competition to bilsteins.

    BTW all of rancho's lineup of their shocks blow balls.
