Recommendations on Blistein shocks replacement

I have a 2015 F150 with a 3.5 EcoBoost engine and a 6.5-foot bed. I am looking to replace my rear shocks and am considering Bilstein shocks.

Can anyone recommend which Bilstein model would be best for towing a trailer with a significant tongue weight?

For towing a trailer with significant tongue weight on your 2015 F150 EcoBoost, consider the Bilstein 5100 series shocks. They’re known for their durability and performance under heavy loads, providing improved handling and stability.

Koni Sports (yellow) is the only aftermarket shock substitute that I’ve truly discovered to be superior to the original equipment shocks.

among the primary three: Koni, Bilstein, and Sachs (OE).

After Sachs and Koni comes Bilstein.

Because Bilstein has stronger valves, which may or may not be advantageous depending on your use case, they come in third place. Something like feeling “sprung” can result from everything else being stocked.
