It is time for new shocks and was wondering what I should get. This is a non lifted truck if that helps.

Very happy with the Bilstein HD 4600 Series shocks. Far superior than the stock Rancho's.

I had Bilstein's on my old truck and like you I liked them. I don't know much about KYB shocks but will check them out also.

Thanks everyone for the inputs so far. :thumbsup:

I have Rancho RS9000XL adjustable shocks and they are great. The nice thing is they can be adjusted for different loads/ conditions.

Decisions...decisions. Thanks everyone for your inputs. :thumbsup: The three brands that have been mentioned seem to be the most popular. Are there any others out there?

With out a doubt, you will get the best ride quality and handling out of Bilstein shocks. I have sold those, along with Tokico, Koni and others, for quite a few years. Bilstein lasts the longest typically. They are over-engineered. I've used them on other 4x4 rigs, old muscle cars, track cars, etc. Cant go wrong. KYB's, are not terrible, just cheaper and will need to be replaced sooner than a Bilstein. Keep in mind, far more often than not, you get what you pay for.

Ditto on the mono max.Had the back go out at about 4yrs.they replaced them no questions.
The Ranch adjustable model sits next to the check out at Napa,but shocks are not on the list,as sweet as they look and look like they would perform!
