shocks

hey i got a 2006 f150 fx4 and i am looking for new shocks. i have the leveling kit up front and air bags in the back and am wondering what would be a good off road/heavy load shocks. i have a 8.5ft camper that i haul in the bush and on lawn hauls as well as a travel trailer and boat.i am jsut wondering what would be the best shocks to go with that will help with most of what i do. i was looking at the fox shocks that they use on the new raptors or maybe come ranchos? any suggestions or pros and cons? i will probally buy online and install my self to save some money and i dont want them to be super expensive. thank you.

There should be a ton of off-road shops in the Van area..they would most likely stock or be able to order for you..Check the Yellow pages and see what you find.

You are close enough to the border. Buy online and get them shipped to a box close to the border.Try these 2 places.

+1 on the Procomps
In Langley, try Sport Trucks (N.S.O.R.) or Highlight Truck Accessories

I haven't dealt with them, but they're located in Richmond.

If Princess Auto were a real girl, I'd ask her to marry me.
