I was really impressed with the ride when I first installed these after I saw fluid leaking from the original shocks on my 2003 F-250. The ride quality declined over the course of a year and Advance replaced them under warranty. I noticed the valve had blown out on one of the shocks when I removed it-there was no resistance when I compressed it or extended it. The replacement set improved the ride again, but after 3 months the ride quality has declined to the point that I am buying another brand of shocks to replace these. One of my coworkers had a similar experience. Maybe we both just got lemons, but neither of us will buy Rancho shocks again.

        The shocks arrived without instructions of exactly where the boot was to be secured to allow for full coverage when extended.

        Installation went smoothly.

        Improved ride and trailer pulling control.

          The installation was easy being that the shock is not pressureized and did not automatically fully extend like the factory original. The shocks seem to function well though. Installation can be accomplished without removing the wheel or raising up the truck. (2004 F-350 4X4)

                Same question for the front rancho rs9000 shock. If they come off a 2005 dodge 1500 4x4. Will they fit on a 1996 dodge 1500 4x4 ?

                  A:

                  I'm happy to help, Shock! The rear shocks from the 2005 Dodge Ram 1500 will fit 2002-2008 Dodge Ram 1500s and 1994-2002 2500s and 3500s. The front shocks from the 2005 will fit only the 2002-2005. If the truck has the off-road package then there are different parts. This RS5000 shock is not an exact fit for either truck. Part No. RS5262 is the RS5000 series shock for the rear of the 1996 Dodge Ram 1500 and for the RS9000 series in the front you'll want Part No. RS999197.

                  I would recommend getting all the same shocks if you are replacing shocks. Please contact us via e-mail, phone or chat for more recommendations for products for your vehicle. Please be sure to include the engine size, whether your vehicle has the off-road package or not and if you have installed any type of lift kit (height above stock).
