    Getting new shocks 9012\'s?

    I am getting new some new rs9000's while they are on sale. I just need to make sure that the rs9012's are the right shocks. They are the extended travle version of the rs9000's rigt? Same ones on the UAV?

    Thanks

    Yes RS9012's are the longest shock that rancho makes, they have 13 1/4'' travel and are the same ones used on project UAV. RS5012's and (I just found this out) RSX17342 are the same length and travel as the 9012. All of these will require shock mount modification.

    HOLD ON! check the rancho website, they are making some new versions of the RS9000. I'm pretty sure that they are longer than the 9012's. I think the site is www.gorancho.com
