    Hey guys, I am looking at replacing my OE shocks on my duramax. Curious what you guys are using as replacements. I do have a triple axle 21,000 gvw gooseneck I haul and my ebling that goes on the back so i would like something that is not to cheap, but not overly expensive either. Thanks.

    Put a set of monroe gas magnums on mine earlier this year. Little stiff when empty but they are nice with the trailer on.

    I have bilstein heavy duty shocks on my 2500 and I love them. I tow cars and my tractor around quite a bit and they ride good when the truck is empty or has a load on it.
