I see more people running the Rancho lift struts on the other f150 forum. I think those are a great alternative and an easier/cheaper installation over the bilsteins. From what I’ve read, they have a smoother ride when compared to the bilsteins at max height and give more lift.Interesting thread. I need to do shocks on mine, as I am pretty sure the factory shocks are still on it. While it still rides okay, it has some issues that scream shock replacement.
While it is true on this forum the 5100's are widely praised, I have used the Rancho adjustable models on several builds as well as the Fox setups on tube builds, both of which I really liked.
I am not a "band wagon" kind of guy, but I do respect the opinions of those in the know. I am not going to jump in just yet, but I am going to continue doing research and building a profile on what I want out of my truck.
Your mileage may vary.
