Works Great

These worked great on the front of our 2000 Ford Ranger with the Load Handeling Sensa-Trac shocks in the rear. The truck no longer does a nose dive under hard braking.

        The website doesn't designate 2x4 or 4x4. It simply says exact fit for 2004 Ranger XLT. It didn't fit and I had to exchange it; 40 mile round trip and waste time.

          Great set of shocks. Had to put some heat on one bolt to get it out but the shocks went in great.

          A word of caution here, be careful with the old hardware, try not to strip it out, use 6 point sockets and you should be oay. The shocks DO NOT come with any of the bolts.

                Changed these front shocks with rears and ball joints. Big difference in handling and squeaks. I would recommend as an OEM replacement.

                  These new shocks restored the front end integrity of my truck. Steering response and braking response was greatly improved. I put new rear shocks on last spring, so the truck now drives much better with all new shocks.
