Help me figure out which Rancho shocks to buy (part number) HELP!!!
 
I need shocks bad.

Rancho has a rebate going ends this sunday (tomorrow).

I have a 2006 Rubicon Unlimited, I bought it lifted and not sure of the lift.

I think its four inches because the collapsed length of the shock will be about 16.5 inches.

In order to make the rebate I have to buy these today or tomorrow.

So looking at the above link and knowing that the maker of my lift is unknown (I'm quite sure its not Rancho) what shocks do I go with?

Help?!?!?!?!?!?!??!??!

Personally I'd say none. I had Rancho and didn't like em so I'm biased. I changed to Bilstien 5100 on the front and fox reservoir on the rear (for armor/tire carrier/camping gear weight) It's working fairly well and sometimes do some "quicker" driving in the rutted washes in AZ. I'll be adding some air bumps for smoothness and to give me a feel good I'm not punishing my Mistress (Jeep) too much. Just my 2 cents. I'd save up and do it right the first time if you're going to be a trail hound.

Going with the Rancho RS9000XL's nine adjustments.

I just ordered RS999061 front and RS999256 rear. My TJ is lifted around 4 inches.

I will ended up getting the RS999256's and RS999255's due to discriptions I read. I hope I'm getting the right shocks :-)

Those are what I got for my 2.5" lift(I'm pretty sure)

Its really confusing the rs999061 is for a 5 to 6 inch lift. The rs999255/56 some sights say fit a 2.5 others a 3.5 and still others say 2-4??? Wtf???

It's the shocks that come with their 2.5" "rock crawler kit" so I choose them..

Not unless you like about 3" of uptravel.

ob269 06-30-2013 08:05 PM

^ how much should there be?

I'll also have to double check which I ended up ordering..
