Ford also didn't put 2 shocks on the front end as a nice feature, you need more damping to control the TTB. While the Bilstien is a quality shock, I don't think 1 will do, you need to step up to a 2.5 inch shock or dual shocks if you want performance out of it.
Ford put quad shocks on the Broncos and F150s that came with that option because it was the 80s and good shocks were few and far between so it was basically their "performance" option.

There's nothing special about the TTB that requires an extra shock.
