For the original diagnosis, a popping noise would seem more like a top mount or ball joint than the actual shock. Might just need a little investigation & loosening/tightening some nuts & bolts.

No way you got 39k miles out of Ranchos. Most people don't make it 12k miles before they are shot.

I beg to differ.

I have 64 K miles on my original Ranchos and drive dirt roads.

Stiff, yes.

No leaking shocks though.

In order to fall under the Fail category, the Ranchos do not just have to leak.

The internal gas escapes and they become a pogo stick. Ever drive over railroad track crossings? Or jump up and down in the bed and feel like you are on a spring mattress?

Bilsteins will give you that Tempur-Pedic feel :thumbs:

A far cry from 12K mentioned, not sayin they’re great but certainly gonna go past 12K

Just throwing this out there.  Cracking Popping sound??  Check your wheel bearing on that side.  Jack tire off ground and grab at the top and pull back and forth.  See if there is any play.  Stranger things have happened.

I second this. That's where a similar noise for me came from when the shock unloaded and loaded as I was driving. Tightened down the center shock bolt, and the noise stopped.

Mine have a small amount of rust near the bottom and I only have 15k miles on the truck. No where near being shot!
