Default Leveling help !! (rancho)

I was wondering if anybody out there has used the rancho quicklift system. It looks good. Comes with loaded front coilovers and rear shocks. Has rancho rs9000xl adjustable shocks. It is between this and the bilstein kit.

Are you going to be looking to lift your truck more in the future or is this it?

The loaded coilover looks nice and I would imagine would be an amazing ride being that the spring and shock are designed to work together.

If your going to run the Rancho long tern I would call them and see how hard it is to replace the shock to see what its gonna cost you in the long run in say 50K miles when they stat to get soft and you need to replace them

Just so you know, the spring does not come on the strut, you have to take your strut assembly apart and put your factory springs on their strut system.

If tht is the way the rancho kit works then go with the bilsteins. Its the same ammount of work and I bet the rancho is quite a few more pennies

Had quicklifts on my 3rd gen. Had nothing but problems with them & Rancho had to send out many sets before I got ones that worked ok. Search online here & you'll see my old posts about them.
