I have been thinking about adding 1.5 inch shackles and some ranchero shocks to my Colorado. My only concern in the ride quality. I just picked up my Colorado this weekend, and drove it 8 hours home. One thing i noticed, is that my Colli is a smooth ride. By adding some ranchero shocks, and 1.5 inch shackles will my ride quality diminish?

IIRC rancho's give a softer ride over pro-comps or skyjacker but your stock ride will not be the same.

It rides like a truck. ;) I have the Ranchos and it's a bit firmer than stock but I prefer it that way.

Awesome! I'm gonna do it. I don't have a TB. I want a 1.5 or 2 inch lift on the back. What shackles would you recommend. It seems like everyone likes the Ranchero 5000 shocks. What coil springs would you recommend on the front?

I used Rancho 5000 series and Bubaloo shackles in the back (1.5"). It's a stiffer ride, but I'm very happy with it.
