Default New Shocks

I'm getting ready to get new shocks for my 08' 2500. I'm loaded alot of the times and also pull a gooseneck with up to 15k lbs. What shocks do y'all guys recommend? I have stock suspension with no lifts.

Thanks

I replaced my shocks with Monroe Reflex on all 4 corners. Much stiffer ride then stock. But then again I also went from a 245/70/17 to a 265/70/17. I don't tow as heavy as you but I like the shock so far.

I'm looking at the Bilstein 5100's. Thanks for your input.

I went with Bilstein (yellow and blue) all the way around on my 3500 dually. Worked out great, empty or very heavy tow. Had one break but I do lots of 4x4 service at a ranch. The front are Bilstein w/firestone air bags integrated so provides lift when empty (have a post about it). Geno's has a good price and service. My stock shocks where shot the first year of having the truck, the current Bilstein are now going 2 years of service. Hope that helps.

The bilsteins were my first choice also because of all the positive comments. They weren't available from the source that my mechanic was getting from so I went with the Monroes. Not disappointed at all. Good for what I do and couldn't beat the price. I will more then likely go with the Bilsteins at my next Tire purchase.

You just can't go wrong with Bilsteins.
