Put a set of Bilstiens on yesterday after removing the stock rear shocks. After 18 years they were weak. The Bilstiens are much better ride quality is good both with 5th wheel towing behind and without.

Oh, I bought them on amazon $140 for 4 of them.
DAYUM! Where on Amazon? Best I can find is about $320

DAYUM! x2

I have the Rancho 9000 on my rears. They feel a little bounce to me, even on the softest setting.

I am about to pull the trigger on new front springs and figured that I would probably benefit from new shock too as I haven't changed them in the 13yrs I have owed this truck. Maybe a new stabilizer too. Just want the normal ride again. Suspension is stock.

Not looking for adjustable. My truck lives a simple life. Just hauls a horse trailer now and then ...about 20 bales of hay every 3 weeks or so...and the daily jaunt to the stores and sometimes work.

why are you replacing your front springs ? exactly how much have they sagged from stock ?
13 years on what is most likely a very cheap twin tube shock is a very very long time, most dont last 3 years.

Front springs are sagged BADLY..as in look like a sad face. Past being flat. So time for new 99 with 345K on the clock...its time. And I want to level the truck out instead of looking like a 70's high school hot rod.

I’m not sure how much of a “frown” your front springs are but that seems close to a normal stance. Mine had a very slight frown to them (both my stockers and my ATS ones). It was just a little past flat.

The only reason I replaced them was because I broke a leaf in the stock springs...twice. After the second break I went to ATS.

I just replaced my Rancho 9000 XL's after 6 years. They were starting to get a little weak. With a lifetime warranty JC Whitney replaced them no questions asked. Plus they're made in USA. I haven't had any issues with the Rancho's. feel good towing, unloaded doesn't t ,matter. I like them a lot.
