    Ok, if you had a 1 ton pickup 4x4, solid axles F&R, leaf springs F&R, what shock would you put on it to get it to ride the best? I was thinking RS9000, but I just looked around, and it looks like the RS9000 has been replaced with the RS9000x and is about $20 more expensive then they used to be. I kinda wanted adjustable but at $82 each I don't know if it is worth that much. I totally missed the whole change from 9000 to 9000x.

    What else is out there, and what would or did you use and how to you like them. I was thinking RS5000 next, but I have heard they ride pretty rough. Anybody with experience with the RSX or any other shock that you might recommend?

    Thanks
    Harley

    I've had probably 6 different brands under my various K5's...........and the RS9000's that I currently run are by far the best. That adjustability is a nice feature IMHO. /forums/images/graemlins/laugh.gif

    Maybe wait till 4WPW has their buy three, get 4 deal.

    When I bought them, the 9012's were the longest they made. Now with the longer ones coming out, I want to get them.... Would you be interested in the 9012's for $65...? /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif
