    Rancho RS 9000\'s

    Does anyone have these shocks on a blazer? How well do they work. I have Dick Cepek race series on my vehicle and they seem to work well. Also Im debating on going dual shocks up front. Anyone seen and improvement in doing this?

    I have them and love them. Can bump them up and they act like sway bars. Got the Duel Shocl controller to, but have not put it on yet.

    I have them also and think their great no problems. I want to add the on board controls someday.

    I have them on my '85. Really help control sway on road. I've got a custom roof rack for my spare tire and the 9000's really work. Off road they control the springs as speed increases over the minor rough stuff. On the truly rough stuff the 9000's control body roll,are trackable, and predictable. Hope this helps...

    So does the controller actually do, I have seen the prices and it costs almost as much as the shocks do.

    I have them on my Blazer also. I like them just fine. I have the factory dual shocks up front. If the Blazer hadn't come with dual shocks, I wouldn't have bothered. Just turn the RS9000s up to a stiffer setting.
