Default 4cyl, 2010 Shock job!

The first thing I would like to mod on my new Ranger would be better shocks for the front. The OEM ones are very soft and I was told KYB G-2 shocks would be better..Anyone have advice...AND Do we have a how to file on the front shock replace?

im not sure if they are different but ive got a 4.0 4x4 and there is 2 bolts on the top of the shock and 2 bolts on the bottom...just pull those bolts of and put the new shock in...pretty simple you just have to take the front wheels off to get to them but other than that theres nothing to it

That would be great Tm if the install were the same on mine...Anyone have any experience with aftermarket shocks performance..I am trying to stiffen my ride a bit but not make it a road "jolter" either.

Rancho and Bilsteins will probably be a stiffer shock. KYB tends to be like OEM.

Ya know I think the stock show is ok for now...Maybe some Ranchos down the road..although she is 2wd we do go on a lot of dirt together. Still a truck right>??
