Pretty sure there's 5100's for rangers with leveled suspension. Those would be your best choice if cost is not an issue.

Bilstein shocks came on the ranger in 2002 on the first Fx4.

Try these.

I think bilstein's are over priced. A truck will ride like a wagon with bars. Any shock is better then stock. How many miles on it?

I installed HD Bilstein's on my 2008 FX4 last year. Best price I found at the time was shockwarehouse.
