Shocks, Brands

I have done a search in the archives and found that the general consensus is Rancho and Blistien. What about some of the Explorer Pro Comp line and some of the others? I have a '87 Chevy short box with the factory duals in the front that needs a new set.

Re: Shocks, Brands

I will specify a bit more. I was reffering to shocks that were in a comparable range as the the RS5000's....under $50 a piece.

Thanks for your reply!

Re: Shocks, Brands

An important thing you need to know is that, shocks for dual shock applications are NOT regular shocks.
If you put dual regular shocks on there, it will be a VERY rough ride !!!
Rancho's are very good shocks, not too terribly expen$ive, and for the price they are hard to beat, plus they have a lifetime guarantee!
An inexpensive Good setup would be, to use a single RS5000 rancho or a single RSX.
A more expensive Very Good set-up would be dual RS9000's set them both at about 2, or maybe one at 1 the other at 2, you would want to experiment with them until you got the on-road feel you want, and when you do go offroad you could adjust them on up to whatever firmness you like[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img].
Two RS9000's set at 5 would be the equivalent of solid steel blocks[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]
