Rancho FX4?? not so great !!

If you guys think that your 2011 rides good and handles well? You are right! But it can be even better with the better shocks.
I wasn't sure what to expect when I decided to order a set of rear Bilsteins to try out and see the difference.First off....I can not belive what I see...the rebound rate on the Rancho is very slow. This Rancho only has about 9000 mi on it and it took about 80 sec to get fully extend while it only took Bilsteins around 6 sec ! The ride is soooo much better with the Bilsteins and much more stable as well.I'll be getting the fronts soon.
Here's the video...and I gave Rancho a head start too!!

That Rancho isn't a true Rancho, but a Ford spec. shock w/Rancho signature.

That looks like a good upgrade. I think I may have to look into them.

Switch all my superduty shocks to Bilsteins from Top Gun customs. Can't belive the difference over stutter bumps on the Highway and off roading.
