    holy cow I'm an addict now...I've gotta get out of the house more...

    oh yeah my question. I was all set up to do the 9012 shock conversion when 4 wheel parts lost my order for them during the 3+1 deal. So now I'm stuck with a shockless vehicle project, one of the last things to do to it. Since school just started back, I'm now a lowly part time worker again and can't afford the 9012s. But I want to set my truck up that way for the travel and because I intend to use 9012s in the future as well as revolvers. So what is the same size as a 9012 in say the 5000 series? Anyone know if they exist? Thanks if you do. If not, I'll call someone and see if I can find out (NOT 4WPH).

    How much lift do you have? Are you planning on relocating the shock mounts in the front or keeping the factory mounts?

    They are the 5012's. any shock in the 9k series will have the same application in the 5k series with the same corresponding numbers. I just picked up 4 5012's cause I couldnt afford the 9k's at the time. They work great!!

    Thanks mike and waxer for the info. Not too sure I need 9000s anyway, I had a set on a '91 toyota I had a couple years ago and they just stayed on level 3. As for the lift, I have 4" and already have my F-250 mounts purchased. I plan on running a setup similar to Depdogs in the rear.

    Procomp makes es3000 shocks that are 33.83 open and 18.82 closed. They are a 10 stage shock and are made by the same company that makes the rancho 5000's. If you think you might be interested in them, send me a private mail and I will get you set up with some.

    It's something to think about. I don't know the specs on the 9000s right now but it's pretty close to that. Do you have a price so I can compare to the 5000s?
