gas shocks for excella 280

Hello. My hydraulics shocks are not very good...I would prefer gas shocks : what is the "best" ? What about the Bilstein ? ( and model ? ). Thank you

I also have a 280 and I replaced my old shocks with Bilstein shocks. I'm very happy with them.

See post #62 in the Dad's Toy thread for Bilstein part #'s and links to
