Deco-Bilstein or Rancho Shocks for my 2014 Chevrolet Silverado to tow 25 Flying Cloud

My 2014 Chevrolet Silverado came with standard shocks in the "trailer equipment package" and they are terrible when towing. My last Chevrolet had Rancho shocks and was much better. In the past Chevrolet trailer package came with the Delco-Bilstein's. Any experiences or preferences?

Not either. After replacing the OEM shocks/struts on my 2011 Mercedes Sprinter last year with KONI products, the difference in the ride and handling was nothing short of amazing!! They are far superior to Bilsteins, which I have used for the past 30 years.

I prefer Bilsteins over the cheaper Rancho shocks. I have the 5100's installed forward and aft and they perform great.
