I've got 120k on my Ranchos... Would it really make a difference if I replaced them? It's hauled heavy loads it's whole 120,000 mile life, except for just here recently... And Adam, what shocks do you recommend?

I just replaced my stock shocks at 38,000 miles.
The old shocks I could pust down with one hand and they barely came back up.
I put on Bilstein 5100 HD and love them.

Yes my truck is a LOT more responsive with the 5100,s.
