Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

Previous shocks that I had bought gave my Jeep a washboard ride. These took care of that. Advance also gave me credit for the other shocks I had bought without any problems.

    Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

    I ordered the rear Rancho 5000 as a replacement for the OEM shocks on '03 Jeep Gr Cherokee w/Class 4 hitch because the front Ranchos were absolutely awesome in smoothing out the road. Extremely easy to replace rears on my Jeep with just a 15mm 6-point socket --- no need for a jack. The rear Ranchos are a bit of a disappointment compared to the fronts. Construction of mounts is cheap, with rolled bosses and spacers, vs OEM solid tube bosses and solid tube spacers that were also a larger dia. Black rubber, not red urethane isolators. Rolled spacers were so thin that full bolt torque took guts on the bottom. I would have switched spacers except the OEM spacer was too large. I stopped short of 80 ft-lb spec torque on the top mount for fear of buckling the spacer and binding the boss. OEM also had a fixed seal cover sleeve mounted to the rod that's a better design than the Rancho red bellows, but of course it's not as cute. I almost gave these Ranchos a 3 for construction, but a 4 because of my expectations for the ride that will eventually justify the expense of Rancho rears.
