I have heard rancho makes some good shocks for anything that is not stock what do yall think any yes, no's or other brands that would be mo betta?? Any input from the dodge or ford guys would be bad a too... every goat that I see is leveled in the front so yall have to know something.. any help would be greatly appreciated.

Bilstein's are really nice. I had them on my dually before I went to the full lift and Fox res. Really helps control the ride from that crazy rebound feeling. For what you have the res Fox's are more than needed but the Bilstein's will be perfect. There are a few different Bilstein's you can get for the Chevy's, difference in over all travel and valving so make sure you get with a person that can guide you into the perfect shock spec to suite your needs.

I've had the rancho 9000's for the past 60k, they still work really well. The reason I went with them was a sale, but Bilstein has a great product.

Are you referring to their quality issues?

Do any of them not rust within a years time? That's what I am looking for. They need to survive the winters up here.
