I'm trying to figure out the differences between the Rancho RS5000 and 9000 as well as the Bilstein Heavy Duty and the 5100s. I do a lot of everyday driving, but I also go off road and do work in my truck. Also it has 295/65/20s and a Truxxx leveling kit. On my old 1/2 ton GMC I ran the old Gabriel coil spring assist rear shocks and their heaviest front shocks. Right now in my current truck I'm getting a lot of axle hop and longer recovery time. Any guidance will be appreciated.
The Rancho RS5000 will be a basic OEM replacement shock, while the RS9000 is adjustable for the level of ride comfort / performance that you want. The Bilstein Heavy Duty is a high pressure monotube shock that will give you a firmer, more controlled ride while towing, hauling, offroading, or just highway driving. The 5100 series is a stiffer monotube shock designed to be able to level your truck by lifting the spring seat between 0.5" and 2". With a leveling kit already installed, you'll want to use the Bilstein 5100 shocks, the front is logner than a standard unit to compensate for the suspension lift. You can see those parts here:
