Default Need advice regarding suspension struts/shocks

hi, im looking for some advice. I need new struts and shocks on my 04 f150 (new body). at the same time i want to level out the front. i found two products, the Rancho RS999910 struts and the Monroe 181361 struts. anyone out there have any info on these two products? the rancho has built in leveling option and the monroe is stock height but i would buy billet spacers to lift it a true 2 inches. not sure which route to go. thank you

I went with the monroe premium struts and billet aluminum spacers as they were both on sale at the time. They have been great for me. If they weren't on sale though, I would have got Bilsteins.

Don't know much about the Ranchos other than they don't lift as much as they say they do. There was a few complaints a few months ago where people had to put their stock springs on to get the actual lift they wanted. I would suspect that Rancho has fixed this issue by now though.

^x2 Rancho 9000. Front and rear now have exactly the same tire to fender space.

I have the rancho rs9000 they ride so much better and have the perfect height. Also the switch the harden/soften comes in handy

I just put on some procomp leveling shocks and love them. They are apparently just like the bilsteins, according to the guys at 4 wheel parts.

I just installed the Rancho Quick Lift Loaded on my '04 FX4 SCREW. Just the fronts. Everything else is stock. 128K miles. Before and After. Took about 2 hours total. $350 shipped for both.
