no problem man. Keep me/us updated, i hope you get it figured out.

just know you aren't the only one who has experienced it, it's something with these trucks and the front suspension that goes awry when it's messed with.

Well I went out and got Rancho RS5000 put on. Huge difference in the way it rides and drives now. The vibrations in 4x4 have soften up but are still there.
I think it does have a leveling kit, ill post a pic and let you tell me

Can't tell from the picture. They are all pretty much the same thing, just different brands. And it's looks like it's been on there awhile. I'd take it off and see how it rides.

May I ask why you got the other shocks? Instead you could have gotten then bilstein adjustable ones...removed the leveling kit but still keep the "level" because the new shocks themselves level it. And they are better quality shocks than stock

I needed new shocks, stocks were shot. 118000km on them. my mechanic was able to do it for me next day with the ranchos. no one could tell me if that was a leveling kit, mechanic did know, never seen that style so he left it as is. but now i know, ill beat the crap outta the rachos over the summer and do something in the winter.
