With 46000 miles on my 2015 gmc 3500 srw it may be time for new shocks. I carry a AF 992. I have lower stable loads and heavy duty Timbrens. I noticed with my truck empty it's getting pretty bouncey. Do y'all prefer Rancheros which are adjustable or blisten which I think are 4600. Also where seems the best place for pricing to order from? Thanks Eddie

I went with Bilstein's on my F-550 at 30K. Now at 60K but I'm buying a new truck so the truck goes as is. The B's have held up well and are still providing a good ride.

I have the adjustable Ranchos. They carry the load very well when I adjust to 9 and ride as best as can be expected from a heavy duty truck when turned down to 2 on the rear and 4 on the front unloaded.

I went to an alignment/tire/suspension shop that has many customers who are owners of heavy duty pickups towing 5th wheel trailers.  I asked them because the kingpin weight of a big 5er into the bed/frame of the tow truck is similar to the weight of a TC.  That shop recommended an auto-adjusting Monroe shock absorber.  I bought them, and they worked for my TC.
