Rancho 9000xl shocks

Here is my problem and it is driving me nut's because I know the answer will be simple. Alright installed rancho 9000xl with the older air supply system one shop said it would work another no here's the main issue the jeep ride's like it has no shock's hit a woopy on the highway and hold on baby. Took the air system out of loop installed the manual adjusters and the same ride. Arrows on the shocks are pointing up and all I can say is any imput would be great.

So if the arrow is in the center with the 1/9 straight up on the shock then it is on the softest setting. Start to turn clockwise and it will firm up the shock.

Hope this helps.

I'm running Rancho 9000XL's and they work flawless. Something got to be up with your adjustments or something loose/off on the suspension

Suspension is solid the only issue's here is after compression at speed i.e. above 50 to 65 the front lift's so much that the front unweight's so much that the front end bounce's for six to eight time's are the shocks inverted with boot up? I've read post of people that don't run boot's because of dirt, dust and water getting into the shock which impley's to me that the boot's are up and they don't want to trap dirt and whatever in the shaft of the shock.

Are you sure your shocks are long enough?

^^that's a good question. Like to add two : How much lift do you have? & Did you try what the Man. advised?

All Rancho's I've used in the past were boot up designs too. This is my first Jeep I now currently own but I've installed them on other vehicles too; all with boot up design. I have had customers who like the flashy red boots and some like me who prefer not to use them...for me it's about the dirt too, but seriously flaming red?? lol.

Every man deserves a 'Hummer' once in a while.
But no man should go without a great 'Jeeping' at least three times a week!

The boot (shaft) should be up on a twin tube design shock. The red boot is ICONIC. We have had those for decades and decades now.
