Question: 4 door Crew Cab 2500 with tow package. Cummins diesel 5.9L Want to tow 5th wheel trailer (gtwr of 14,000 lbs). Probably will need helper springs and air shocks or whatever you recommend. Have used Rancho stuff on my Jeep and worked well. Any help or advise will be appreciated. I want good stuff, not looking to save a buck.

Answer: The best shocks for towing with your truck are the Bilstein Heavy Duty, they're specifically valved to give you more control over your truck and trailer, particularly while at highway speeds or on rough roads . You can see those here:
Front -
Bilstein 24-186063 Front 4600 Heavy Duty (B6) Shock Absorber
Rear -
Bilstein 24-186087 Rear 4600 Heavy Duty (B6) Shock Absorber
If you're worried about the truck sagging under the load of your trailer, your best bet will be an Airlift Superduty air spring kit, which is
adjustable for up to 5,000 lbs of extra load carrying support. You can see that here:
