Rancho Suspension Comments

Hi all. I have carefully read many pages about lift and suspension kits, and I have found very few information or comments about the Rancho suspension kits. Are they not very popular? Why? If any of you guys has it installed on a 4dr 07 or 08, what are the comments?

Thanks!!

JLAG

this is strictly my opinion...

i'm not a fan. i think they cut corners in quality to keep production costs down. they may be able to pass that savings on to the consumer, but suspension is something that you pay for what you get.

i've heard the RSX 9000 adj. shocks are real nice, though.

YES, I TOO LIKE THE 9000 ADJ. SHOCKS.

TAKE A SIDE BY SIDE LOOK AT THE RUBICON EXPRESS 3.5 LIFT AND THE RANCHO.

YOU CAN SEE WHERE RANCHO CUT CORNERS AND CHOSE TO GO THE CHEAPER ROUTE. NO ADJUSTABLE TRACK BARS, NO NEW ARMS, ETC.

I have the Rancho 3". I have no real complaints, but then I have nothing else to compare it to as this is my first suspension lift. I will take it on its first true off-road experience this weekend in Gilmer, TX for the ultimate test.

In all, the only "complaint" I would have is that it sounds loose, but feels fine on rough terrain. Its done that since day one and given me no actual problems or cause for concern.
