    Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

    After watching YouTube video, replacing the shocks was not too difficult. I removed the tire on the first shock (passenger side); however, I did not remove the tire on the driver's side; slightly more difficult, but still do-able.

        2006 Dodge 2500 Cummins 4WD. Replaced as part of a larger steering linkage and suspension overhaul. Shocks perform as specified. I wanted something better than stock and got what i paid for. Nice product. Nice ride overall.

            2005 Ram 3500 drives like new after installing these shocks and matching stabilser. The Install was not too hard but not what I would call easy. Takes a little time and right tools but well worth the effort.
