    I currently have 4" Tuff Country HD front springs with modified zero-rate type blocks on my 69 K20. I'm presently using Tuff Country SX8000's. The front end of the truck can get pretty bouncy. I'm in the process of making changes which include replacing the 307 with a 454 and I have ordered new 6" Tuff Country front springs to get rid of the front zero-rate type blocks.

    I'm interested in a shock that might help control the bounce a bit better and I figure now is a good time to change out the Tuff Country's front shocks.

    Any opinions on the Rancho RS9000X's or suggestions of other shocks to consider somewhere in that price range (about $85 per shock)?

    Dude I sure like mine, I tow a heavy travel trailer and can adjust them so the ride is not so choppy but also can readjust them for when the truck is unloaded. I had the same gas shocks you have and a four inch T.C. lift on my truck but these RS 9000 put the gas shocks to shame on how good they ride. My front end was also kinda soft but the shocks firmed it up.

    No, they usually run either 49.99 or 59.99 for most applications. Problem is that I don't have a damn paper catalog for them to get super long ones.

    That's alright, I've got my gabrials, $20 before my discount and they seem to be working pretty well.
