I've never heard a bad thing about the Bilsteins, I dont know much about the Ranchos tho. When it comes time i'm going with the Bilsteins.

The Rancho's are a good shock, you won't be disappointed, even though I have never run the bilsteins I've never heard anything bad about them,

but I love my rancho's, way better than stock that's for sure

Bilstein shocks ARE the best on the market as far as bolt on shocks....you can get better IF you get into race shocks, but since you drive on the street, i would go with the Bilsteins...

i would buy procomps, cheap yet effective.

no way in heck im going to spend 250 plus for a set of shocks, way better things to buy.

procomps go for about 30 each.
