will Rancho RS9000xl (5-6in lift) shocks work with a Rough Country (4in lift) kit?
Im worried about it affecting my travel as the body of the shock is about an inch longer then the shocks that came with my Rough Country lift. Could it affect my up travel or possibly allow for too much down travel?
Please any input is greatly appreciated and the sooner the better. I found a new set of 4 for just under $300 and want to be able to jump on a good deal, if they wont cause me any problems?

For longer shocks you would best off to move your shock mounts. Or add extra bumpstops, but then you are limiting travel. Or buy the correct length shocks for your lift.


Rear Currie 4" coils - 190 shipped. (They've been sitting in the back of my Jeep for mock up but won't work out for me.)

Hornblasters Shocker S4 horn set with some extras $210 shipped. (It is not OBA, just an accessory for OBA)

"LCOG" isn't cheap and it certainly isn't easy. If you think so, you are doing it wrong. If you aren't willing to put in the effort, don't label your build "LCOG". You are just a cheap ******bag.
