    I'm planning to put new shocks on my truck. Wondering what's the best. I have read some people put the rhonco (whatever there called) sorry. Have a 2000 1500 with 7.5 V plow. Any input would be great

    I have Bilstein heavy duties and wouldn't trade 'em for anything. They work much better than stock shocks.

    I'm running the Rancho RS 5000 on my 99 Silverado and they work great. The Bilsteins are a nice shock also.

    Rancho RS5000
    Double-welded mounts with hardened rubber bushings
    Double-chromed 5/8" hardened rod.
    Ten-stage, velocity-sensitive valving.
    High-capacity twin-tube design.

    Bilsteins seem to be the favorite among GM truck guys everywhere, they are kind of expensive but worth the $$$ IMO.

    Bilsteins are OEM on my Tundra with the off-road package. Stiffer ride but well worth it. Superb off road on dirt roads. Wouldn't trade'em for anything.

    I think Bilsteins were OEM on my '03 2500hd Duramax. I think they feel like mush unless they are wore out. I like the firm control of Rancho RS5000.
