There are at least 6 different manufactures of shock absorbers for the different iterations of the F-53 chassis.

There are different calibrations for jounce and rebound controlled by inertia valves or pressure valves or even a combination of the two.
See SDtrucksprings, Rockauto or Summitracing for more info.
