Ive got the cheaper non adjustable rancho shocks on the front of my truck. No matter what its still a front heavy leaf sprung 3/4 ton. Anything decent is better than blown out garbage or nothing at all.

All those had Rancho RS9000XLs on them.
I know your question was directed toward the leaf sprung trucks, and only 1 in the list was leaf springs.


Did you tow with them much? If so, what did you adjust the rear shocks to?

The 2001 has a System 1 toolbox/ladder rack setup on it, loaded with tools, and fairly often tows a 20’ car hauler trailer with a scissor lift and garage doors on it. Iirc, I set the front and rear to 6 on it and he never changes it.
The other 2 tow only occasionally, and are set on 6 in the front and 3 in the rear with no changes for the occasional towing they do.

Go to the 5100s if you are looking at bilstiens.

Crap I already ordered the 4600s. What's the difference ? I don't haul anything with the truck.

Shocks have nothing to do with hauling. The 4600s will be better then dime store shocks for sure. The 5100s just cushion more. The better the shock the better the ride.

Thanks for the heads up. I may see if I can return them.

Another vote for the Bilstein 5100's.
I run them on my '03 KR, and the '04 KR I have been working on.
I went with the stock to +2" height shocks.
And at about $400/complete set, they are hard to pass up.
