yeah those will work, as long as theyre for a 98 and up ranger. i really like bilstein shocks, but pro comp, rancho, and other brands like those will work well. search around on here, or go talk to the guys at your local lift shop to see what they recommend as well.

i was thinking bilstein 5100s is what i really want but the really expensive but i need shocks with an upper stem mount and all the shocks i seem to find have an upper loop so i've been looking ever where for the ones i need

Got these off Bilsteins webpage. They have a pretty nice parts finder. And Summit Racing is selling them for $75 a piece, I know the picture looks wrong on there but its the right shock. They will be yellow with a blue boot and the stud not a loop at the top.

Part Number: 24-188241

That should be the part number for the Bilsteins you need. These are for the 4wd rangers so they are longer which is what you would need after you install the lift springs.

Part Number: 24-185271

This is hte part number for stock 2wd bilsteins just in case.
