Everyone i going to tell you something different.

I prefer Monore Sensetrac shocks. They will go on my truck when i change out the Motorcrafts i have on there now.
Others prefer Bilstein, or Rancho. but its all personal preference.

I did like my stock bilsteins, they are now on my buddys 2011 sport becuase he liked them better than the stock ranchos. They must have like 100k miles on them and they show no signs of age

you really couldnt go wrong with bilstein with everything said. there shocks are good for really any application. with the kind of track record they have i dont think you could go wrong with them.

Sensa tracs are great
Bilsteins are great
Rancho's, I didn't like them on the bronco
KYB's suck
