Yes If they are the stock shocks they are worn out. I know that my rears were worn out when I got the truck and it only had 9000 miles.

Yes, I do! Replacing the front shocks is one of the best things you can do for your Titan.

I would replace them. Many members have had good luck with Bilstein. You can also check out PRG, one of our supporting vendors. They have some higher end options that you may be interested in.

Most folks do not favor the Rancho brand. I would go with the Bilsteins.

If you don't mind spending a little extra money, you might try the Radflo 2.0s. It's an adjustable coilover, so you can level your truck if you like. The ride is suppose to be comparable to the SAWs and the DRs, but not quite as expensive. You might also replace your rear shocks with DRs or Bilsteins. You should check out PRG's website or give him a call. I believe he offers a shock package (Radflo 2.0 in the front, DRs in the rear) that you might be interested in.

Like I said, if you don't mind spending a little extra you'll have a great ride. Upgrading my suspension was the best mod I've made... no regrets!

CHUD has some good advise. PRG is developing a mid-level kit that should be out on the market soon. It looks to be the best of both worlds and worth the wait. I would wager he will sell many, if priced within the reach of Joe Average.

Bilsteins should tide you over until then. If you buy them and make a drive to Tucson, I will load the strut for you. You should of course, let me know when you are coming. I sell vintage aircraft and I travel frequently.

I have the bilsteins on my truck and they were a great improvement over stock. I have a better ride now than I ever did before.

I kind of doubt that the front end is sagging. Maybe it feels saggy because of the worn out shocks. But if it is really lower, then new shocks won't help. Shocks only dampen movement. The at-rest height of the truck is determined by the springs.

Oh yeah, stay away from the factory Ranchos. Just parroting what I have read elsewhere on TT.
