    Add both links - price is about the same . If you guys could help me put it would be much appreciated . Truck currently has about 70k miles with original bilstein 4600s
    Which one would you choose and why ? Essentially main difference is obviously brand name and one has coils vs spacers . I believe the Fox shocks are better but will I get a better ride if I switch out coils
    Thanks

    Look at Thuren Suspension Technology. Coils and Shocks will provide a much better ride for sure.

    I prefer coils on these trucks. Thuren or Carli are a good choice for a better ride but might not be a good choice if you are hauling heavy or running a drop in bed camper so keep that in mind. If you just want a better ride go with those.

    I have the Bilstein on mine (next model up) because I did not want to sacrifice tow/haul capacity and it's been fine, no complaints.

    Thanks mtnrider. Now when you say sacrifice tow/hauling capacity what exactly do you mean . I don’t see myself getting a 5th wheel camper . Just haul a travel trailer no more than 8-10 grand possibly . Or are we talking a serious load. I will have the factory springs in the rear which seem to be great. When I hitch my boat (4K lbs) they don’t seem to even drop at all . Please elaborate if possible I appreciate it
