Both awesome shocks. The 7000's are firmer but better controlled. 9000's are stiff as hell or soft like a caddy. The adjustability is what's great about them.

This right here. I ran 9000's for years on a JK, when the 7000's came out it took about a week to get used to them, since I ran a 3 on the 9000's. I now run these on my JKU, I love them.

Are the RS7000s firmer than OME shocks or softer?

They are going to be a bit firmer than an OME shock.

Thanks!

If its only a bit firmer its ok for me.

Do you have a PDF where I can see the collapsed/extended shock lengths to find the right shock for me?
Should I use the shock boot or is it ok without it?

How much lift do you have now? I maybe able to help you out a bit quicker on finding a shock for your application. On the boot it is up to you, honestly. I run them but I stay out of mud at all cost. If you find yourself in mud keep the shock rod clean to protect it from nicks.

Thanks!
My TJ has about 5" of lift and my "old" OME LT shocks are 15.43"/26.69" (front) and 14.41"/24.49" (rear) long.
How long bumpstops do I need with the new shock?
In the front I have 3" and in the rear 2" longer BS than stock.

RS7061MT (front) is 17.38/28.21 travel 10.830
RS7062MT (rear) is 15.58/24.86 travel 9.270
These are what we offer for the TJ in 5-6".

RS7239MT (front) is 14.92/24.00 travel 9.08 (4" TJ lift)

So your BS are in a good space too.

I currently am running a 2010 JKU with a 4" lift and 35x12.50x18. I just received the 7401 today however now I'm reading that the jeep will be pulling to the left. Is this an issue and/or an inconvenience? I'm now thinking I should return it and get a different one. One of the reasons for sellecting the 7000 series was the silver look since my JKU is silver. Also what are the 3, 1" round tubes in my kit?
thanx

You may feel a little push, but most likely not much honestly.
1" tubes? It isn't a felt circle is it?
