Arrow Sulastic rubber shackles

I am thinking of installing these but I have asked about seven different truck shops around town and no one has heard of them and all of them are skeptical.
Has anyone installed them and if so did it help the ride quality?
I want a better ride (which I think these will help) but my main goal is to prevent the highway bounce (the horrible bounce/hop between the expansion joints in the highway). It's so bad in my truck I either have to do 40mph or 85mph just to be able to have a conversation.

What are your thoughts?

I looked them up on youtube...some interesting videos. Seems like it might smoothen out the ride...

I had a set of them on a 2500 dodge before I bought my 6.4.. And honestly there wasn't a noticeable difference from before I installed them so I never bothered buying another set when I got my ford. The springs looked like they were quality and video is pretty convincing but I felt it was more for side to side bounce (bump on one wheel) rather than expansion joint that goes all the was across the road.. If that makes any sense.. Hope this helps

Yes, that does help though I'm still undecided. I've had two separate people tell me that the Bilstein shocks will make a significant difference does anyone have any opinions on replacing the shocks?
It's a little hard to justify replacing the shocks considering the stock units are only 2 years old and are Rancho.

Ive heard a lot of good things about the bilstein 5100.. Thats what Carli uses for their level kit, although its a tuned 5100 but that should tell ya something for quality.

Ditch the rancho!

The 5100s are worth the money IMO.
