Install advantages of the quicklift aside, which shock is better? Durable? Warranty? Performance?
Is it just a matter of preference?
I like the Bilsteins for the height options and I think its a slightly better shock, but the adjustable ride on the ranchos is a bit smoother than the 5100 and tune-able to your preference. It comes with only one height setting, but it is eaiser to install as it is a complete package.
Have you checked out the Fox 2.0 kit? Its under $950 delivered from us and features a fully adjustable coilover and rear shocks.
