Need Rancho RS9000XL Part #'s

I have the Teraflex 2" level kit and looking to replace my stock shocks with the Rancho RS9000XL's. What part number are you guys using for the shocks with the leveling kit? TF kit raises rear 1" and front 2".

From what I can gather I would need part numbers RS999327 & RS999326. Just want to be sure before I order anything. Much appreciated.

Those would be the stock length parts #'s.
If content with travel, those are fine. If not and want more, step it up to 29xl and 30xl w/ a little more bumpstop,

RS999328 and RS999236 are specced for 0"- 2" lifts on a 4-door according to Rancho reps.

The Teraflex level is considered a 1.5" lift and I think I would also classify it as a 2" for shock determination purposes. The front gets 2" and that is where you need the flex specs to match up.

This is from the gorancho.com website:

VEHICLE HEIGHT FRONT P/N REAR P/N QTY REQUIRED
2-in. RS999326 RS999330 2

I'm not sure that I agree with that... That uses the close to stock length front shock, but you have 2" lift and the 4.5" longer rear and you only have 1" lift in the rear.

I think the RS999328 rear, which is +1.5 would be the correct choice.

I wish they had a true +2 or 2.5 for the front... If you use the 29's, you get 3 1/4" over the 26's which, like KJeeper said, would probably require extended bumpstops to keep from bottoming out the shock. But that's doable.

On paper, it looks like 29 front and 28 rear would be best. I'm watching closely, because I'm going to do an LCG build with good articulation at 1.5" to 2" and 9000's will be my shock choice.

Let's see what Rancho has for a recommendation...

Thanks guys. I'm still not 100% sure which ones to go with. I don't want to replace the bump stops if I don't have to.

I just got this response directly from Rancho...

Based on my TF leveling kit Rancho says I need part # RS999236 for the front and part # RS999330 for the rear. This is for the 4 door, JKU. The 2 door uses the same rear shocks but uses part # RS999326 for the front.

You Sure, that doesn't make any sense ?

36xl.. What shack is that ? I don't even have it listed ?

I have
26xl 0-2 front
28xl 0-2 rear
29xl 4" short arm front
30xl 4" short arm rear
31xl 4" long arm front
32xl 4" long arm rear

That and the JK typically takes a shorter rear shock?

Here's the chart

It's really up to you. Are you installing the coil lift or budget boost ?

Yah it didn't make sense to me either. I contacted them back for clarification and was told again that for a 4 door I need part RS999236. Elizabeth Auer gave me the information both times.

I already have the TF 2" leveling kit on. Just the spacers.

Who did you talk to, A desk person or engineer Contact Matt here on the forums.

I can say this .. You can run either 26/28, 29/30


Rancho's 2" kit uses 26 front and 30 rear I believe.
2/4 shouldn't matter because TF makes model specific kits. 2" front and 1" rear for either.

It looks like that P/N is transposed.
RS999326
I would go with 26/30. This is what we use on our 2" system BTW.
KJ is on it again.
Thanks Matt

That shock is showing a 9.250 travel. Honestly never seen it linked to a JK. Does look like it would work though. Check with Matt

Yep I saw the f-150
Looks like a stud type top like the stock jk front.
Unless the mounting dimensions are different, it could work ?

ok thanks. I feel I need to keep both hands on the wheel or atleast one hand firmly to keep control. Its a 2014 with less than 1k miles. Only mods are in my sig. Tire pressure is 34psi. Noticed a change in the steering when the new wheels and tires were put on and no lift. Tires originally had 40psi and once I dropped them to 34 it was significantly better. I may drop the psi again to around 30. Appreciate all the help fellows.

Could work but not really, you are right on the dimensions. Different thread size and the bushings on the bottom are different I am guessing you could press out the bushings on the bottom (or just tightened it WAY WAY down )

I would drop the PSI a bit more honestly.

I have the same 2" teraflex leveling kit on my 2013 JKU Sport with 32" tires and I just installed the Rancho 9000's with part numbers RS999326 and RS999328 and they are awesome. They are so easy to adjust. I run mine on 3 pretty much all the time.

I spent the $100 rebate on slush mates.

I just received today a set of RS9000XL for my stock 2014 JKUR from Quadratec.

According to there (Quadratec)) web page rear shock with o lift is RS999327.

According to Ranchos web page I need a 28 for a stock suspension.

I call Rancho and they tell me the 27 is for a 2WD wrangler and I need a 28.

I just got off the phone with Quadratec and they tell me the 27 is for stock JKU and 28 is for 2 inch lift.


HELP PLEASE!
