    OK, I'm running Rancho 5000's now and I picked up the Ferd towers. So go ahead and do the Rancho 9012's or do the Detroit for the 14 bolt first? What do ya'll think? Any good deals anywhere lately on either?

    yeah...I'd second that motion....go with the detroit!!!! I wouldn't even buy 9012's...just stick with the 5000's (buy longer ones of course!!), IMO the difference in ride quality, dampening, etc. between the 5000's and 9000's is negligable....especially for the $$$ difference between the two. Besides...it doesn't do you any good to spend $$$ on longer shocks for better articulation if you don't have the traction to get to you to the places where you need it!!
