Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

I figured it out as I looked at my old shocks and made sure the news one matched. I luckly had my chiltons manual that helped with placement. You can easyly put the wrong combination of washer and rubber in the wrong area, which can lead to problems in the future. If your confident in your abilities then this product is easy. If not then make sure you mark every part and how it fits before you disassemble. Other then that It works great.

Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

Straight-forward installation. No guidance to apply boots, but not terrible to figure out. Still would have saved me a trip to GOOGLE to be sure I was doing it correctly. RS5000s are performing PERFECTLY! Nice upgrade from factory shocks. Firm, stable ride. Perfect fit. All parts included. EXCELLENT VALUE!!!

    Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

    Great shocks. I'm glad I chose these shocks as replacements for my 2000 toyota tundra. My truck does not have the TRD package. They are a little stiffer shocks compared to OEM. That is fine with me. Truck has a little stiffer ride and doesn't seem to squat as much as before when I had the OEM shocks. Overall these are great replacement shocks for a Toyota tundra.
