Re: Impressions of rancho 1.5 lift springs?

Just the springs themselves dont flex to well. Ive been running mine about a year. Better than stock, but bumpy as a motherFawker. Good for SPOA, even though im spua.
I was reading somwhere that these are the best springs for people who like to jump their zuks. Hope this helps.

well, I am set up for SPOA, but my stock spring are in terrible condition and I wanted to get some springs that had little to no lift. I don't intend on jumping the zuk on purpose, so if the are that stiff I may look to something else.

With a spoa set up they should flex more than my spua. I think they would be a perfect spring for a spoa set up. I dont endorse RRO, but they have a good write up about the springs. Dont buy them from RRO either, they shipped mine in some crappy shrink wrap, and not much paint was left on em when the UPS man dropped them of at my house.

I've got the OME's and love them. New a guy who had the Rancho's at the same time. His rode like a buckboard. He liked my ride much better. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

My first lift I ever put on my zuk was a 1.5" Rancho lift with RS5000 shocks (SPUA) and it rode horrible. It had less flex than stock BUT it made the Samurai handle like a slot car on the street....Ranchos would probably work OK on a SPOA setup if you had a lot of extra weight on your zuk.

If you are already SPOA just put rear springs upfront and run CJs fronts in the back.....rides and flexes really nice and will probably be alot less money than Ranchos and it will give you about the same amount of lift.

you are also running them in the front of the X-weasel unless you changed them out.
