SHOULD I GET SHOCKS OR STRUTS FOR MY FORD RANGER? WHAT'S THE DIFFERENCE?
It is not a question of choice, it is a question of what suspension setup is on the vehicle.
Shocks and Struts are different types of dampers (shock absorber) used in the suspension setup of the vehicle and can only be replaced with the same type.

HOW TO CHANGE SHOCKS ON A FORD RANGER?

If you choose to install shocks yourself we strongly recommend taking the vehicle to a suspension workshop for a check-over. Most workshops offer free or inexpensive inspections. Better to be safe than sorry!
