Shocks

I am looking to replace all the shocks and maybe front springs too what would be a good choice. I have heard to get bilstein, rancho, and even trailmaster?
Should I get compressed gas or something?

well you dont have springs in the front of your truck.........'97 was the last year for front springs in Rangers....

as far as shocks, if you have the money, get a set of Bilsteins......they are the best on the market today.....they are valved for each vehicle and not just a standard across the board valving...
