    Ok, have a question. I don't have part #'s but it's pretty simple....... I have Rancho 9000's all the way around. They are for a 2-4 in lift. A friend gave me some rear 9000's for a 4-6" lift. I want to remove the old fronts and move the rear shocks to the front and put the bigger 9000 rear shocks on the back. I'm thinking this will give me more travel. Will the old rear 9000's work on the front? Or am I wasting time?

    the long ones, do they have the # 9012 stamped into the sides? how about your existing rear shocks? if so put 1 long 9012 on each corner.

    Both of the fronts I am removing say 9001 All 4 rears have 9112 on the side. The one set is a few inches longer than the other so they'll go in back. The old rears will go into the front.

    I'm not sure I'm understanding your question, but I can tell you that my truck (6'' lift)uses RS9112's at the very front (dual shock), RS9116's in the front (standard position), and RS9005's on the rear. Hope that helps you some /forums/images/icons/wink.gif
