most people are running the bilstein 5100's in order to level their rides out. I also did this but on the flip side it improved my ride 10 fold and mine is a 2011. As far as when you change your shocks there can be a few different hints that you need new ones. Usually your ride will have more of a bounce, your corning can get sloppy. You notice the back end sag a big more when loading it. That's more spring than shock though. When I replaced the shocks on a dakota I had I just replaced them because I got a good deal on new ones. Ride seemed ok and everything. Turned out they were completely shot. No rebound what so ever. That was a 2004 and I replaced those three years ago. Chances are you need new ones. Bilstein makes an excellent product. I prefer them over rancho any day. Get them from Bully's Performance. Great deal and more important.....really really good customer service.
