    I need to replace all of the shocks, but this air leaf front on my 567 sffa needs the best I can get. I'm not as impressed as I'd hoped to be with it. It's ok, but not worth any extra money over the tried and true leaf spring. IMO.
    But what brands and even models of shocks have you found to do a good job and last a while? OTR application. 13K front, 275x22.5s. Nothing unusual.

    Just use OEM.

    I have a Volvo with a Hendrickson 13.2k front air ride suspension and I’ve used Gabriel and Monroe before.

    To me they’re all about the same, regardless they should be replaced once a year, or every 100k miles as their performance does degrade over time.
