Ranchos are pretty good shocks. I'll guess you got the 5000 series, with the big red boot? If you just leveled it, the ride may be a little more harsh than stock....wait, a 2008.. Do you have torsion bars? I don't know if non-torsion-bar trucks get stiffer when leveled.

But either way, the ride is good. I eventually upgraded to the 7000s, and now have Bilstein 5100's, which are superior to both IMO... If you just got them, there may be a rebate available as well....unless it expired..
