Manufacturer: Rancho
Yes: 47 / No: 3

As the industry finest and most proven adjustable shock absorber Rancho’s RS9000X patented 9-position technology leads in all categories: Ease of use, Durability, Fit and Performance.

The RS9000X is fully adjustable while mounted on the vehicle which allows drivers to easily "dial in" their ride for precise control in any condition, tuning the compression and rebound damping is easily metered by manually changing the setting on the dial at the the bottom of each shock. Also available and sold separately is the all new RCX remote control damping system (R99701), which allows independent front a rear damping control from the cab of your vehicle. Representing an entirely new level of technology for off-road, street or highway driving.

The RS9000X also features Rancho’s exclusive 15-stage velocity-sensitive valving for enhanced stability and traction. The shock’s advanced tri-tube (reserve/intermediate/primary) design yields 17 times greater fluid area than its predecessor, ensuring exceptional performance under a full range of load and temperature conditions.

Price: $3.70
Pros: Looks and reels solid. easy install. they preinstalled the rubber boots on the rear shock, unlike some other manufacturers. I like the adjustability
Cons: very stiff even at softest setting.
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I needed to replace the shot stock shocks ( say that three times quickly) and after shopping around I found these got good reviews. I wanted something adjustable for towing but that I could dial back for DD use. the install was easy once it cut away the plastic preventing getting to the top of the passenger side front shock.

I would recommend these at this time.

Price: $400.00
Pros: Ability to dramatically change the feel of your ride in a minute - easy to tighten up for on-road use or loosen for off-road
Cons: Pricey, but you definitely get what you pay for
Recommended? Yes

Comments: If you're like myself and want a Jeep that has good on-road manners but is still off-road capable then these are an excellent investment. I can change the stiffness on all 4 shocks within a couple of minutes max for whatever application I need. No complaints thus far, well worth the extra money to have the best of both worlds. Extremely smooth ride barreling down fire roads

Pros: Adjustable
Cons: Valve body is HUGE
Recommended? Yes

Comments: Shocks are very nice and easy to adjust. However the valve body is huge and you cant mount upside down. So shock placement is critical front ones are dented bad cause of this.

Pros: Adjustability feature
Cons: No cons

Comments: I installed these because my cheap ProComp shock broke. These are way better quality, but without an easier way to adjust them, I find myself just leaving them on one setting.

Pros: Adjustable
Cons: I don't have any complaints
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I don't have any complaints. I bought the lift when Rancho was doing their $500 rebate when you buy lift and shocks, so my total cost on these + the lift was $500. I was able to get them on Amazon.com, and qualified for free shipping...its always best to check there first on anything you buy, you'd be surprised what they carry.

Price: $100.00
Pros: adjustable from very soft to very firm
Cons: Horrible quality control.
Recommended? No

Comments: I used to love these shocks, the adjust-ability is awesome, form super soft ride to super firm for off road or towing.
The quality control for Rancho on these shocks was the worst I have ever seen far worse than I ever expected to see.
One shock had been patched up and had no oil in it, it was non functional. It took me over a week to get a replacement shock. The bad paint, the lack of Quality control was awful. Weld slag on the poorly painted shock body. Small dents in the shock body. No paint in some areas and even a little rust in some areas on brand new shocks. The seals leak oil.
I love adjustable shocks but thier quality control has to improve drastically.

Comments: I love the fact that you can change them to 9 different stiffnesses. I have the 15" travel shocks and they are very impressive. They perform well and look good while doing it.

Comments: Got a good deal on these from an inside source. Adjustable and easy to install. The only thing that sucks is I tore one of the rear boots trying to put the boot over the top shock mount. Nothing a zip-tie couldn't fix.

Price: $400.00
Pros: Fine tuning for all conditions.
Cons: None
Recommended? Yes

Comments: I just picked up a set of the newest version the 9000XL, they now come in silver metallic with the same red boots.

I've been messing with shocks and reading reviews for a long time and finally found something that works as advertised, yeah your going to pay more for these but you basically get nine shocks for the price of one, the knob makes that much difference.

You can go from luxury to full blown tow machine in seconds, these things are the real deal.

With a 90 day free test drive, I can't see why more people aren't doing them.

Great off road flex and great on road manners, just awesome.
