Replaced the Rancho factory shocks (which are made by Motorcraft) on my F250 at 6,500 miles with these Bilstein 5100s and the difference was very noticeable. I don't think the OEM shocks were doing anything; even with no load after taking them off, the Ranchos didn't have any rebound. The 5100s, on the other hand, are very responsive and keep the truck under much better control on harsh roads. Ride stiffness seems about the same as stock.

Best way to level your truck in my opinion. Killed two birds with one stone when I bought em. Needed new front shocks anyway. They look great and definitely improved handling from oem.

Way better then a spacer when raising the front. Spacers can bind the coil (That's what the ford dealer told me. They said it raised it more then a 2 inch spacer and I set it at 1 inch. It also adds travel. I just carried the heaviest load ever moving a friends garage, truck with trailer load with snapon tool boxes loaded. Shocks are impressive just watching the action when being loaded and driving with such a load. Awesome shock!

I was hesitant at first to purchase these shocks due their price. And the beating I put my suspension through during hunting season. I decided to buy them and installed these shocks on my 2000 Z71. It feels like a factory new ride!! Off!!! And on the road!!! I Will never buy anything else for my vehicles.

Great quality replacement! These shocks done away with about 85% of my jeeps thumping and rattling over bumps. Beware though, you will need nuts and bolts for front lower shock mounts as these don't come with new ones and holes are larger on new shocks so old nuts and bolts will not work. Overall I am pleased, although haven't had them off road yet.

The shocks are well built and helped the ride on my truck. I removed a spacer under my stock shock and replaced it with these. Made a noticeable difference. Seemed like they were difficult to install as far as compressing the coil springs.
