Rancho Shocks

I'm planning on replacing my rear shocks with the Rancho brand. I see that there are a number available. Which one would be the best compromise between cost and performance. I own a 4 WD 2005 Toyota Tacoma. Jim

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Welcome to TW! The only Ranchos I like (or had decent results with) have been the RSXs'. Personally, I think the Bilstien 5100's are a better shock for the Tacoma.

Personally, I'm not a fan of Rancho. I've used them in the past (years ago) and I had atleast 2 shocks leak - luckily at the time, they had a lifetime warrantee. They don't last very long either - I was lucky to get 2 years out of them (piston leaked).

I had the Rancho RS5000 on my 95 Tacoma 4X4 front and back. I think I installed them on my truck at about 80K miles and they were still on there when my truck went to the crusher with 146K miles. I have no complaints about them; they never leaked and performed properly.
