I have searched through the forum and tried to avoid asking everyone a question I figure has been asked again and again but I am not finding what I need. I am about to buy rear shocks for my truck and have seen some stuff about the Bils, Ranchos, OME's, and a few others.
For the money what is the best to go with? I have heard the most about Rancho 9K's but want to see what all of you think also. Pros/Cons.
Whacha Got?

My personal opinion: "You can't go wrong with Bilstien" I had the HD's on my 4runner, and my taco has 5100's on it now. I love em: Great ride, worth every penny IMHO. My buddy has Rancho's (not sure which ones) on his Silverado, and it rides really well, but a lighter truck might ride alot stiffer.

I'll second that. The rancho's will be stiff under a taco. Try the bils. Best bang for buck. Still no 5100's, so look for 5150's, or the hd bils. 2nd choice for me would be the doestch tech mv12. SOFT rear shock. Some say they should be for a dual shock setup. But, I like them out back.

OME shocks run really nice. They are not setup to be stiff ride, they are almost setup for comfort. OME somehow figured out a way to mix comfort and offroad in their shocks.
