Ram 1500 shock reccomendations

Just got a new (to me) 99 Ram 1500 in need of shocks. Looking for suggestions. This is mainly a tow vehicle, I don't offroad as much as I used to, though I still need to get into the woods during hunting season and my cabin during the winter. Price, unfortunately, is a prime consideration at this time. My first inclination was the basic Ranchos like I put on my Jeep, but I'm open to other suggestions.

Best bang for my buck is explorer pro com es-1000's. 4 wheel parts usually has a sale running on them.

Well, the Pro-Comps are OK, I guess, but I can NOT reccommend 4 wheel parts! I ordered the set of 5 (4 shocks and a steering stabilizer). They promised 3 day shipping, which was good as I wanted to install them that weekend... but they didn't ship them for several more days, so I lost the weekend. When they arrived, the fronts were OK but they shipped the wrong ones for the back. I called, they said no problem, they'd ship the correct ones and send a call tag for UPS to pick up the wrong ones. At this point things were getting tight as I was leaving on a 2500 mile trip the next weekend. The new shocks arrived and... they were still the wrong ones! At this point I had no more time to wait, so I felt justified in canceling my order (except for the fronts which I had already installed) and buying generic ones locally. It took two weeks for them to finally arrange pickup of the second set of bad shocks, and I'm still waiting for my refund.

My grandad bought some general Gas Shocks, I forget what brand exactly. Bought them at Napa, for my 97 Ram 1500 before i bought it.

I prefer Rancho, I plan on a set of RS9000's (remote adjustable) for it.


Rancho, by far!
