Which Shocks

I have a 2003 26 Vision on the Ford V10 chassis. I think its time to replace the shocks (reducing sway is probably my No. 1 priority). I'm looking for advice as to which replacement shocks I should get. Thanks.

Blistein or Koni x 2 here. We replaced our OEMs of 17 years with Koni's and it's been like night and day

I got my Bilstein's from "Shock Warehouse" and installed them myself.
Not a big deal. Rides like glass now.

Which Shocks

I have bought several sets of shocks from shock warehouse and found them to be good to deal with. Can you guys help me with some part numbers? Or at least what info I might need to order them? Thanks, Don.

Shock part numbers?

Can anybody help me with part numbers for the shocks? How about what chassis I would have under a 2003 26 Vision? Or, some other way to figure out what to order? Thanks, Don.

We are totally non-mechanical but changed ours out ourself front and back (was hard to get rears on but did it with right tools)

We are also in Canada so used a local company to source ours who were really helpful. Provided them with our VIN number and took photos of the label inside the rig detailing the vehicle and also took photos of the existing cheap OEM shocks and measurements. They ordered them from the emailed info, and within a few days we were good to go. Made quite a difference to our ride for sure.

For what it's worth different shocks have different connector areas we found.

Sorry not sure how helpful this is to you but like I said we are not mechanical at all but find when we provide enough info the suppliers overall have been very helpful and we've done a lot of self maintenance/repair over the years.

Finally got somebody on the phone at shock warehouse. The guy knew just what was needed when I told him what chassis I have. Koni's are 50% more money and not worth it compared to Bilstein's. Thanks All, for your help.
