    Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

    The nut that is used to keep the piston from turning is too small in height requiring a very thin wrench. The rubber bushings supplied are much smaller than stock and look inadequate. The supplied cup washers are also smaller and thinner than stock. The red cover is hard to install properly. I would not buy these again.
