Whats a better shock then rancho

When I bought my jeep it had Rancho rs5000 shocks. So I told my self I just buy the rs5000 again when they go. Now I'm looking for shock and thinking I want something better . I want the rs7000 but can find them for a 2" lift. I'm still looking but if I can find them what and other good shock to go with. And are not like the rs5000

The adjustable Rancho 9000xls are the only Rancho series I would recommend(it's what I run). Seems like many are unhappy with the 5000 series. I do like the 9 different ride settings of the Rancho 9000xl's(soft to firm). OME and Bilsteins are 2 other brands I would suggest for ride/build quality.

I had heard from a shop that there are only two companies that make shock absorbers. One of them is Monroe. I don't remember the other one but you can tell in some catalogs how most shocks are the same, just painted different with different company names. Maybe someone in the know can varify this.

You should be fine getting the RS9000xl's for the 2.5" lifts.(Not body lifts)
