Rancho 9012 and 9010 alternatives

Looking for a NAPA shock part number for light-valved shocks that will be about the same extended/compressed lengths as the Rancho 9012 and 9010. Both are double eye style. Does anyone has such info?

Re: Rancho 9012 and 9010 alternatives

closest I could find where 27" I have one on the back of the truck when I had to replace one of the D-techs,
I can crawl under and check for you. Or if you are looking for a 26" shock go for a set from autozone
for a 72' dodge 1/4 ton pickup/rear they are 10.99 each.

Re: Rancho 9012 and 9010 alternatives

that is extended. My d-techs are 31" they are the same price as napas longer shocks, I just had to have a quick
replacment as the instructions with my spoa failed to mention the brake line mounts on the rear axle possibly hitting
the shock body... (Thanks RRO)

Re: Rancho 9012 and 9010 alternatives

Yeah, that can happen. Calmini's instructions suggested mounting them upside down for clearance. I did that AND cut/moved the mounts inward for clearance.

Did you say that NAPA's long shocks were 31" like the D-techs? Which part numbers?

Re: Rancho 9012 and 9010 alternatives

The longest Napa shock I could find that they could get (That didn't cost 50.00) was the 27" ones.
I am happy with the d-techs, Once I install the missing links I am making I will need to replace the Napa
shock with the right 31" D-tech shock. Otherwise I can't tell the differance side to side between the napa
and the d-tech shocks.
