Rancho Rs5000 shocks

I really need to change the stock ford "rancho" shocks. they are rusting pretty bad and probably getting worn out. Would these be a good replacement for the crappy stock shocks?

I would recommend the Bilstein 5100's. Just changed out the stock ones with these and the difference is amazing. You do not realize how bad the stock shocks are until you put these on.

I have been "trialing" Rancho 7000 shocks. Threy have been great. I had the Bilstein 5100's before these and can not tell the difference.

Okay Ill be the nerd here but we beat the ba-jesus out of our work trucks and all we run is the rancho 5000 and they can and do hold up. Not saying the bilstein wont do better just my opinon.

I'm considering RS5500s in the rear. The nitrogen charged Rough Country shocks are way too stiff. Up front they're fine, esp bouncing through the desert.
