kev324 Thanks! This makes me feel better knowing that they will still fit if I ever swap out the 2.5" springs for 4" springs.

For 0 - 2" of lift they recommend: RS999326 (front) RS999328 (rear)

For 4" of lift, they recommend: RS999329 (front) RS999330 (rear)

But there is no in between. What if you have 2 - 4" of lift?

Getnoff Love my 9000s! I change adjustments for normal driving vs towing my boat. Makes a huge diff. Waiting for my rediculously heavy Poison Spyder bumpers (and winch) to get back from powder coater to install. Guessing I will need to run a bit higher setting after.

m998dna Call Rancho technical rep and they'll provide the correct PN's for your application and amount of lift..

The RS9000's are a great shock..

Rancho 9000s because they're adjustable?

What do you recommend? Been looking at rancho and TF lift kits. I was looking into 2.5" with a 33 tire

kjeeper10 Up to you Julio. How much money you want to spend?
You can run a 2.5" budget boost for clearance. This will be less expensive and you will avoid driveline/steering issues with higher lifts.

Lift kits??

I want to run 17" wheels with LT315/70/17 Mickey Thompson MTZ tires. What kind of lift will I need for this? Or will I just need spacers?
