Rancho 9000 Shocks

Are the Rancho 9000 shocks worth it. My yukon's rearend has been sagging more and more these days. I have come to believe it is either the shocks or the leaf springs. I am thinking about the rancho's, but i would like some feedback if they are worth it. If anyone else has another idea about the rear saggage, please let me know.

Re: Rancho 9000 Shocks

Id say its the leafs, since the shocks dont carry the load. the the 0rate adaleaf should work great.

Re: Rancho 9000 Shocks

The 0 rate ad a leaf is not listed on the ORD website, or it wasn't last time I looked, so you'll have to call to order it. I beleive the price is $30.

Re: Rancho 9000 Shocks

$30-$40.....i don't think they're listed on ORDs website, but check out coloradok5.com - one of the guys did an install and review...or email ORD for specifics. you'll probably want to get new ubolts...from autozone or something...unless you have 1" of spare threads on your current ubolts.

Re: Rancho 9000 Shocks

I put a set of those on my 92 Blazer a few months ago. Work great. Cost is $30 plus shipping which came to $39 for me (Colorado to San Diego, CA). 1" of lift with no side effects.

You can see some of my install at:
My Install

You can also see an install on a later 80's K5 Blazer (same work as ours) at:

Hope this helps. Won't help your springs from not sagging, but I look at it this way:
They flex better now, and I'm at least back to their original ride height, all for less than $100 and a few hours of wrenching.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]
