Info about Superlift and Bilstein and a question

Well I just got off the phone with Superlift asking them about their Bilstein shock upgrade for the 4" Ranger Superlift kit. They do not offer the Bilstein shock upgrade for the Ranger because of how the front shock mounts are. The guy on the phone said that bilstein does not offer a front shock that will work on our trucks, so that option for the superlift doesn't apply to Rangers.

That being said now, I was wondering what sort of upgrade shocks should I look at getting? I hear the Rancho adjustable shocks are really nice. Does anyone know anything about these or have another shock to reccommend?

I'm sure there is a 5100 pintop that would work, but dont have time to figure it out.

Rancho makes a good shock too though, or the ProComps shocks (made by the makers or Rancho)...

Ok I guess I did word that incorrectly. He said they were not offering Bilsteins as the shock upgrade with the superlift kit. Apparently they are not the 5100 shocks, but some sort of special superlift-bilstein shock concoction, and bilstein does not make that superlift-bilstein mix for our trucks.

How much should I expect to pay for a set of 5100s for a 4" lifted truck?
