Off-roaders prefer mono-tube shocks, as they can be mounted upside down and run cooler than a twin-tube design. If you are going to be doing some serious off-roading, reservoir shocks may be the best option. These units have a separate reservoir for the damping gasses and yield extreme shock absorption capabilities.
Most shocks that you will find in the parts store are not adjustable, but there are a few that are. An adjustable shock gives you the ability alter the valving of the shock itself, controlling compression and rebound.
For the average street truck, a single-adjustable shock is more than enough to handle the job. These shocks feature nine settings at the twist of a knob to tune the shock from stock ride, all the way up to a firm ride, for performance and towing.
That is a significant difference that you can feel in the truck. The RSXL series is a large-bodied shock that uses a unique triple-tube design with a mono-flow piston for top-end performance; it even comes with a boot for the exposed end to protect the seal for longer life. The bushings are polyurethane that will last longer than the rest of the shock. When it comes to street and off-road performance, Rancho shocks have the reputation for being the best. The process for swapping shocks is simple for most trucks.
In fact, they can usually be swapped without even taking the wheels off. If the truck is older or has a lot of miles on it, taking it to a car wash and blowing out the dirt and grime from underneath is a good idea, also spray the nuts and bolts on the shocks with some penetrating oil a couple of hours before you do the actual swap, that can make everything come apart faster.
The rear shocks are the easiest to remove and install. Display Options. Already know the part number you need? Click here to enter them directly into your cart.
