2009 Ford F250 4wd 6.4L. Replaced shocks all the way around the truck. Was able to install the shocks easily enough. I'm very mechanically inclined, but your typical do-it-yourselfer would have no issues with installation. Read many reviews prior to purchase, and these were recommended overwhelmingly compared to others. Most of my driving is highway, with some towing (up to 17K trailer), and am pleased with the ride empty. have not towed since install. So far, so good. Would definitely recommend. 4wheelparts called to make sure full set met vehicle application, which is always good to know if you are unfamiliar with the zillions of part numbers and choices available.
