            I installed these same shocks on my Chevy 3/4 ton 4x4 22 years ago!! They must be pretty good because Rancho didn't even change the part #. Easy to install, my truck is high enough in the air that I didn't even have to use jack stands!! I shopped around before I purchased these but still found the Rancho 5000 series shock to be the shock for me.

                On my high mileage Pathfinder with a tired suspension, the much firmer ride (than OEM shocks provide) and improved handling is very welcome.

                    I put 31 10.5 tires on my 95 f-1504x4 and now the tires seem to be bouncing from 30 mph and up. I think the shocks I am using are to weak for the tire size, would the rs5000 be strong enough to stop the vibration
