    Which shocks for 4\" lift? Rancho or Pro comp ?

    Ok... now that I have finally figured out that I got the wrong springs for my lift, I figured out that I also got the wrong shocks for my lift. /forums/images/graemlins/smirk.gif I love this stuff! So, which shocks should I get? I currently have the RS9000's for what is apparently a stock truck. I like the adjustability of the shocks, but if there are better adjustable shocks for roughly the same $$ (or less - around $75.00 each) I would love to hear about it. I need some that will go with a 2 - 4" front lift and not reduce droop or stuff, like I need to tell you guys that! (I only need fronts, the rears are good to go).

    Anyway, all opinions welcome! /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Depends entirely on your spring setup. I can tell you that the Skyjacker Softride 4"/6" lift is so soft that the RS9000 is too soft in compression for those springs. A slightly stiffer spring setup could use the RS9000. Rancho supposedly has a new version of the RS9000 that is adjustable for both rebound and compression (the original RS9000 is only adjustable on rebound), so it might work with the softer springs.
