Installation of the front shocks on my Tundra was a little troublesome due to the spot welds breaking on the coil spring flange. This allowed the assembly to turn a few degrees which made installation of the lower bolt extremely difficult. I expected better workmanship from Rancho. The rear shocks went on fairly easy. These shocks ride well and are stiffer than the OEM shocks. Overall, they seem to be pretty good but only time will tell.

I read all the reviews on this site and thought for sure that the Rancho RS5000 shocks would be a great replacement for my stock pieces that have gotten very soft recently. I only have 31k on my '03 Tundra, but I also run w/ a fiberglass cap and load the bed w/ camping gear on a regular basis. My truck only has a V6, so I have to assume that the suspension is a bit weaker than the V8 model, but I was surprised when I noticed the bed hitting the bump stops whenever I had any kind of weight in the back (even small loads). I decided to replace the shocks all the way around, even tho I did not have any noticeable issues w/ the front. I ended up getting the dealer to install them because of the necessity for a spring compressor up front. The back shocks should've been a no-brainer for me to do personally, but I couldn't get the old ones off in the timeframe that I had. Fast forward (2) weeks and I can honestly say that I am not 100% pleased. Granted, I only run the truck about 16 miles/day, but even w/ the weight of the cap, the backend bounces like it has air shocks w/ 100psi in them! The front seems fine, but then it always did. The back shocks however, seem to need a lot more weight on them to smooth things out. I've yet to use the truck for camping or any kind of off-road abuse, but I can only hope that things settle down w/ time. My wife use to feel that the truck was the most comfortable vehicle for long trips. Now? She has yet to ride in it and I can hear her questioning my decision already!
