    Default I live on washboard roads. Best shock?

    2001 Suburban 1500 4x4. I live on dirt roads and they are often washboardy. The car is new to me and a VAST improvement in ride over my 93. I'd like a shock that will hold up to washboards, not rattle the crap out of my new car and also maintain the nice ride.

    i had rancho RS9000X on my truck and loved them. they worked great and they were nine way adjustable. however, they were not cheap. however, if i were gonna do it again i would say go with Bilstein 5100. they cost about the same as the ranchos and ride very very well

    What about the Rancho 5000? They seem to be cheaper and the shop says just as good as I don't do much huge off-roading, just camping etc.
