    I need new shocks and have been counting on getting the Bilstein 5100s all around and removing my level block. The price is right and I've only heard good things.

    And then I found that Dieselpowerproducts has Fox 2.0s for $116 :jawdrop: That's only $15 more. They don't have F150 listed, but they do have chevys, dodges, super dutys, and jeeps. So I should be able to contact them and have a set for my F150 brought up.

    What do you guys think?

    wish I could choose on experience but I have none with either lol

    I would say the fox if theyre only $15 more but are they better than the bilsteins?

    I will tell you when I bought my rancho shocks I wish I would have went with an adjustable shock, these things are a little stiff but then again, its a truck.

    If they're only $15 more that's a no brainier...

    Speaking of shocks, I've got to replace mine here again real soon.

    True that dude. My last truck was like riding in a truck that had bricks in place of shocks. As a matter of fact, if a shock every went out I planned on just grabbing a brick from the yard and sticking it in its place. The brick probably would have road better. :jester:

    Fox shocks get my vote!

    I don't mind them for an inexpensive shock
    I only paid $50 a shock for them I believe
    Way better then the BDS hydros from my experience
