New tow vehicle

Hello to all. I just swapped out my tow vehicle. I purchased a new to me 2008 Silverado 2500HD LTZ with the 6.6 Duramax and I was wanting some input on what shocks to replace my factory ones with. I read a lot about Bilstiens and Rancho and I was actually considering putting the factory shocks back on it. I am open to all suggestions and all replies are highly appreciated. Thanks

I found replacement 2500hd shocks that were actually Delco performance upgrades . Heavier than the originals less costly than some others they improved handling both with and with out trailer. Installed at local GM dealer with good results and reasonable cost.

You should have a really great tv in your GMC diesel truck, especially from outside of the rust-belt. Enjoy towing with it.

I put the kyb monomax on my 2003 2500hd duramax. Has been 7 years ago, but still love them. And they are usually less then some 9f the more popular brands.
