06 F350 Stock Rancho Shocks

What is the best way to tell if shocks are bad?
I know of the bounce test, but lets face it I weigh a buck sixty and bouncing a 1 ton truck is not going to happen.
I have removed the shocks and I am able to compress them by hand and then release them and they uncompress.
Any suggestions appreciated, also opionions on if bad go back to rancho or is there better out there.

Thanks

Just about anything is better than those Rancho shocks that come on the truck. Truth is they are really just Rancho branded Ford shocks. Your best best is probably Bilsteins.
