usually lowering a car makes it ride more rough than the stock suspension... how many miles are on your ranger? that will let you know what needs to be done to make it ride more smooth.

djms shocks are toxics, same thing..

belltechs are good shocks, and in the back some nissan hardbody shocks will work for a stock ride.

If you want a smoother ride in the back put some weight in the bed.
