I'm going to need tires and shocks here pretty soon but i cant decide exactly which shocks i should get. Ive narrowed it down to either rancho R5000's or Bilstein HD's (somewhat close in price); or maybe go a step nicer and get RS9000XL's or BIlstein 5100's (also close in price) if either of those are REALLY worth the extra money... I just need some good advise on what would be best for my situation. Here is what I drive and how I drive it:
- 2001 Mazda b3000 Dual Sport, 2wd regular cab, 3.0 Manual
- it will have 32x11.50 BFGoodrich TA/KO's on stock suspension and about 2 inches of
torsion crank in the front when I get new shocks
- 50 miles a day to school and back proabaly 75% highway is most of my driving
- about 350-400 miles a week total including going to school and back 5 days

nice trucks! ive already got 31's on it and they look just a little small for my taste. its got the dual sport offroad package too so it can take a little bikker tires anyway. But i just want a shock that will handle 32's good. I have heard of people putting F150 shocks on... saves som emoney... has anyone heard of this?
I have the rancho adjustables with the in cab compressor and setup, they handle my 32's and 33's fine, but I'm running them on the Jeep not the truck... I love being able to adjust on the fly and they perform great...
