    ANYONE HAVE THESE? I JUST INSTALLED NEW RANCHO RSX SHOCKS IN THE FRONT OF MY TRUCK AND CAN'T STAND THEM. I HAD ROUGH COUNTRY NITRO 9000'S ON THE TRUCK AND HAD A PERFECT RIDE THE NEW SHOCKS ALLOW THE FRONT TO BOUNCE UP AND DOWN OVER AND OVER AGAIN AT EVERY BUMP. WELL I JUST ORDERED A NEW SET OF 9012'S TO REPLACE THEM ALL. I DID NOTICE THAT THEY SELF ADJUSTED BUT AFTER HITTING HARD BUMPS AT SLOW SPEEDS AND THEN HITTING BUMPS AT HIGH SPEEDS THEY FRONT IS BOUNCING EVERYPLACE, I THINK I WILL LEAVE THE ADJUSTING UP TO ME. I JUST WANTED TO NO IF ANY ONE ELSE HAS TRYED THESE AND HAD THE SAME PROBLEM?

    Do you have a lift? Rancho doesn't make RSXs long enough for a lift, so that may be why. I used to have them, and that never happened, but I also had a lift on them...4WPW

    Yes I have a six inch Tuff Country lift and the shocks are the longest RSX's Rancho makes they measure 16 3/8 compressed and 27 5/8 fully extended on the front the rears are still my old Rough Country Nitro 9000's. The front of the truck will twist right up and the shocks don't limit anything. RSX's didn't come long enough for the rear.
