Softest shock for Ranger w/ torsion bars?

Pretty basic question. What shock is going to give me the best ride quality on the street? I'm looking for soft ride, not railing corners

Thanks

I think Bilsteins would be your best bet

Bilsteins will be firm. They ride well, but firm. With bilsteins and disconnected sway bars the ride is great!

But a lot of people recommend monroe reflex or something like that, they say they are a smooth ride on the rangers. Never used them myself.

Try the KYB monomax gas performance shocks. Shocks have worked great with torsion lifts and improves the ride quality for their DD trucks.
