Bilstein shocks

I have a 2006 E250 Quigley with I assume the standard 4" lift. Looking to put on Bilstein shocks front and rear. Any info or advice will be helpful. Thanks.

Put on Agile custom valved Fox shocks. They're MUCH better.

Just give them a call.

They make a complete kit for Quigley as well. Ride Improvement Package.

Hey guys, found this thread and I am in need of new shocks. Your input is appreciated!

Van Use:
10% daily driver
65% highway
25% dirt roads- forest service grade or just slightly worse (this is not my offroader)

Van:
2000 Chevy 3500 w/ Advanced Four Wheel Drive System and 4" Lift (all leaf springs)
-Interior has full cabinet package, mic, fridge, A/C, furnace, pop top
-Will never tow anything greater than 3500#
-Van does not have a rear sway bar

Info:
It doesn't seem that I would benefit or ever take advantage of an adjustable shock so hopefully that narrows things a bit. Hoping for shocks that excel on moderate bumpy roads and around town- maybe even cut down on the body roll as I am sure you are all aware of Current ride quality is not poor, one shock is leaking and these happen to be the originals installed about 60k miles ago. Just going through her as I am the new owner and updating what I can.

Question:
Which shock have you guys employed and seen an increase in ride quality/performance? What are your recommendations for replacement given the above info? Brands/models to stay away from? Other thoughts or possible mods to increase ride quality?

Cheers,
LG

Lenny,
I purchased from ShockWarehouse for my Quigley & ended up not installing the front units. If you're willing to wait a couple of weeks, would make a sweetheart deal to find them a new home. LMK w/ a PM
Thanks,
D.
