New Shocks?


Recommended Posts

Do you tow or carry a heavy load with your truck? I do both and I have gone to the Rancho 9000XL for their large piston and adjustability. I have gone to the them on both my gen 2 and gen 3 truck. Some other folks that tow heavy have used the Bilstein 5100s and have good luck with those.

Not sure where the 5000's stack up in the shock hierarchy, but if you don't want to break the bank, there are Thuren's Overland shocks for $300/set as well. I went with those after looking at 5100's and other upper end shocks, but decided I had no idea how much shock I really needed and didn't want to spend a ton so I gave them a shot. They are a tad softer compared to a bilstein 5100, but have survived a few hundred miles of offroad adventure, and work well on road as well, so I can't complain. I have not towed with them yet and so i can't comment on that aspect.
