I don't know if it's these NH winters or what....but my truck has been riding like crap for the last couple of weeks. Today I took a closer look at my shocks and there's fluid running down both pistons on the front shocks (I run my shocks inverted). So obviously something's let go internally... I went to the Rancho site and was only able to find this warranty statement: Limited Lifetime Warranty Tenneco Automotive Operating Company Inc. (TA) warrants qualifying Rancho® products against defects and wear-out when used on private passenger cars and light trucks under normal operating conditions for as long as such purchaser owns the vehicle on which they were originally installed and TA continues to make the warranted product(s). Qualifying Products Rancho® RS9000X™ Performance Shock Absorbers Rancho® RSX™ Performance Shock Absorbers Rancho® RS5000™ Performance Shock Absorbers Suspension Components Doesn't mention anything about the 9012s (an admittedly older shock in their lineup) and I'm also concerned about the "when used on private passenger cars and light trucks under normal operating conditions " statement. Has anyone here taken a bad RS9000-series shock back to 4WPW or any other retailer and actually had success getting it replaced with a NEW one??? I have a set of Bilstein 7100s that I was planning to install in the spring, but I'm not sure if reservoir shocks can handle the cold weather any better than the Ranchos did???? I've held a rather low opinion of the Ranchos and consider them to be a "throw away"-type shock but I don't feel the same about those new Bilsteins I've got....and I don't want to find out the hard way that they are only designed for "fair weather" operating conditions. Any input?? .
