Default truck bounces

Hello all,
hoping someone can help.I recently purchased a 2003 ranger 3.0 2 wd and it had 16" tires with a lift kit.I since went back to 15" and replaced shocks in back but these things are stretched to the max and truck bounces like they aren't there.Do I need a different shock or is that something else.
Thanks!!

It was OK before I replaced the shock with an incorrect one. Put your dunce hat on and sit in the corner until further notice.

If you put the wrong part on a truck, would you create an account on a web forum to ask what you should do?

Find an ORW Shop in your area and have them install a set of aftermarket shocks that fit your "Lift" !
Thats the first step, then have them check and install if necessary, a set of front shocks that match the rear for buffering.

What type of LIFT Kit was used on your truck ?

The first posts are pretty much on... SHOCKS !
