    Just bought rancho 5000's from someone on the list and I'm wondering if they are suppose to be compressed? I thought that they would be extended and I would have to compress them to get them on the bolts but I actually have to pull them out. They are stiff to get out and then once out, stiff to get back in but not gas charged like I expected.This is normal for these right? THX

    <font color="green"> Yup, normal. If they weren't stiff they wouldn't be a very good shock. /forums/images/icons/grin.gif /forums/images/icons/wink.gif </font color>

    <font color="green"> Well, I'd have to agree with you about the 5000s being too stiff, but if the 5000s he has weren't stiff then they'd be broken /forums/images/icons/smirk.gif </font color>
