rancho for $40 is the way to go. install them yourself. won't take you long. anything besides those OEM are better

i'm running the rancho 9000RSX's and love them. they are adjustable so if i'm off roading, towing, or want a better start off the line i crank them down. but they also give me a smooth ride if i want too. i got a buy 3 get one free from samsoffroad.com but 4 wheel parts also has specials on them sometimes. Very easy to intall however the ranchos have larger tube diameter and they do hit the upper a arm just enough to take some of the paint off the shock if you are on 3 wheels while off roading . if you dont do any seriouse offroading you'll be fine not that its a problem anyway they just bairly touch.

sams right now is selling 4 of the 9000's for $289.95

and if you dont wanna spend that much their rs5000's are $150

but i would never but another shock unless its a Rancho

Best shocks for on and off road applications., around 100 bucks a pop from summit, but well worth it

I have Bilsteins on mine, like them alot, a great shock.

Autozone here had to special order them, but at no additional charge, arrived fast. $230 i believe for the set of four.

Install is very easy. i couldnt get the rears to compress enough to fit in, so i jacked to rear up as high as i could get it to lower the axle and its mounts to allow more room. Then after installing the top mount, i compressed the shock with another jack and slid the bottom in to its mounting holes.
