RE: upgrading shocks after prekey and crank
Hello, Just thought I would post up my experience, as I wasn't able to find a definitive answer when I was looking.
I had done the prekey swap, and a torsion bar crank on my 2011 ranger fx4. The result was a much stiffer ride, But I also noticed over big bumps that the shock would top out.
I ended up ordering a Rancho RS5000 series shock, meant for 1-2" of lift. The shocks have improved the ride 10 fold, I highly recommend this shock upgrade to anyone who has cranked there bars and has encountered shock topping out/ bumpy ride.
Install was a breeze, All I had to do was jack the front end of the truck up to let the suspension droop. Was able to change the shocks out without even taking the front tires off. Took an hour or so.
