    Whats the difference in the numbers on the Rancho Shocks?
    3000, 5000, 9000??
    Is this the firmness?

    I don't know what the 3000's are but look below.

    RSX=Self adjusting - not for lifted trucks
    5000= 10 stage valving
    9000= 5 adjustable settings

    Go to the Rancho website at <font color=red>http://www.gorancho.com</font color=red> for more info.

    The 3000 are Pro Comp shocks and I was told they are the same shock as the 5000's, even made by the same shock mfg...

    I was just wondering. I saw all the different lift kits, and they all had different shocks. Just wondering which is better worse mid grade and so forth.

    I bought the procomp 3000's to go with my TuffCountry lift. I wiggle and bounce like crazy. I'm not shure if it is my shocks or new springs or old rear springs. I kind of wish I had the Rancho 9000's and then I could adjust them to see if it made a difference.

    Just my 2¢.

    9000's are twice as much but if your as picky as me you might need that adjustability.
