    How much different are the Rancho RS9112 & the RS9012. Also how different are the RS9165 & the RS9012? I need to know asap. Will they interchange or be close to interchanging?

    New info. The current shocks on the truck measure 20" eyelet to eyelet on the front, and 23" eye to eye on the rear. I am thinking that the rears will work, but the fronts will not.

    Thanks

    Re: shock difference

    shaggy has the Rancho PN's bookmarked. he'll see it.

    IIRC, 9012's are 14 or so inches of travel. not sure of the others.

    i know a few people on this board run 6" lift with the 9012's in the front, using the Ford Shock Towers.

    I am sure after looking at the truck again (my mom's Furd) that they won't fit in the front. I need to know:

    Are RS9112 & RS9012 close enough to interchange? The RS9112's are the recommended for her truck (92 Furd F350 4x4) This truck also has the factory (I think it is factory) 4" lift. It has the 4" rear lift blocks in the rear. The RS9012 are recommended for her truck, but with a Rancho lift on it. I just need to know if I can interchage the two. Thanks
