2009 2500 HD Shocks

I need to replace my shocks on my 2009 2500HD,CC,SB,4x4. Leveled with 285/70-17's

I tow a 11 000lb 38' enclosed race car trailer with it regularly. I would like something better than the stock shocks. Any ideas?

Rancho 9000s are nice because of adjustibility. Changing steering stabilizer will also help improve ride.

Bilstein 4600's. or Bilstein 5100's which are stiffer and more for off road.

put the 4600's on my 04 after about 5K miles and wish I would have done it sooner. On my 15 I had to wait till this last week when bilstein released the shocks for the 15's.
