My shocks are shot. I need your expert advice as to what shock has proven itself for you. Stock 1999 f250, firestone air bags, 2000 lb. truck camper. Thanks

Bilstein.
Model 4600 is a little stiffer ride.
Model 5100 is a bit smoother ride and has a zinc coating to prevent rust.
Some guys put 4600 on rear with a camper and 5100 up front.

I have a set on both my F250's and I got them both from Amazon for the best price I could find anywhere online at $280 delivered for all 4.

When I replace shocks I use Bilstein. I did not notice much change but I had 170,000 on my last set and they did fine.

+3 on the Bilsteins. I have 5100's on my truck and my camper is about the same size as yours.
