Rancho RS9000XL vs Bilstein 5100
I am at 72k and preparing/saving up for shock replacement on all four corners. I like the that the Rancho RS9000XL can be adjusted (claimed 400% difference between lowest and highest setting). I always hear good things about the Bilstein 5100s though. Any experience with the Rancho RS9000XL shocks?

i have a 2014 silverado that when the rear of the truck hit bumps it always jumps the rear of the truck to the left. i have 87k miles on the truck so i figured the rear shocks were done. after reading many post i decided to put bilstein 5100's on the truck i had a lower spacer on the front to lift the truck 1.5 inches. so i set the fronts on the 3rd setting which is 1.26 inches and then installed the rears withe boot down. i drive a section of road that has had some pot holes filled in that make the truck jump to the left after installing the new shocks i drove this section of road again and the rear of the truck will still jump to the left. i checked the ubolts and they are tight. what else could be making the truck do this if i hit a series of bumps it get dangerous any help appreciated
Hey all, new to the forum. I recently bought a new (to me) 2003 Silverado 1500HD. It rides very smooth for being a 3/4 ton chassis. I have noticed it likes to get a little bouncy when I go over a bump or hit a dip in the road. I do not want it to ride like a dump truck, but a little more stability would be nice. Leaning towards bilsteins. Thoughts and opinions?
