Shocks

I am getting ready to buy new shocks for a 2003 F350 Crew Cab 7.3 and would like to know if the Rancho brand of shocks is better than Monroes Gas Magnum Shocks. I believe both are made by the same people, just a different company / name. I also know Rancho are usually a little more expensive as well. I don't do much in off road other than driving through a corn field every now and then for firewood. I also didn't even see anything on Rancho's site about shocks that would fit an 03 unless I didn't look in the right place.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.

Thanks
Mark

I doubt you'd find much of a difference between the two (Ranchro & Monore) and I don't see the need to overspend on anything else. I got the best deal on the Monroe's on Amazon, as I remember it was like $150 for all four (gas/lifetime) AND the steering stabilizer

Agreed ^^^ did the same thing Monroe Reflex from Amazon, great price found free shipping and couldn't be happier with the ride.

Same truck here....but mine's 4x4 (not FX4), just a Lariat.

Everyone I spoke with suggested Bilstein. That said, I have no clue what part number. Autozone had listing for about 4 different ones and when I was ready to buy, I was more confused than I was before I went into the store.

my vote is for the 5100's.. but they will only work with a leveling kit on your truck: http://stealth-automotive.com/index....roduct_id=1859

Did I just add 4 of those, plus the Steering Stabilizer, and it came to $1628.00?

Yea,,,there's a realistic option over Amazons Monroe Reflex for 90% less....

lol... yah im pretty sure you did something wrong.. because it only shows 407 for all 5 shocks on my screen.... you dont add 4... that price is for all 4 shocks.. if you add the stab it adds just 1 more shock....... so you added 16 shocks plus the stab
