Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

What a waste of money, time, and effort. I have these shocks all the way around on my Chevy Avalanche and they have all been replaced 1-2 times. Rancho used to have a quality product but they are all junk now. DO NOT BUY RANCHO! Two weeks after replacing the rear shocks, they were visibly leaking. The drivers front has been replaced 2 times, and it needs to be replaced again, it will be replaced but NOT WITH RANCHO! Put these on your trash can wheels for those driveway bumps because that is all they are good for. Rancho should be ashamed of this product.

    Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

    THESE SHOCKS ARE TRASH, EXCESSIVE BOUNCE AND PROVIDE NO HANDLING. ONLY GOOD FOR SMALL BUMPS ON THE ROAD. I'M TAKING THESE GOOD FOR NOTHING SHOCKS AND GETTING MY MONEY BACK. I HAD #5268 AND #5274 RS-5000. MY TRUCK IS AN 03 CHEVY TAHOE DON'T WASTE YOUR TIME PURCHASING. THEY WILL PROBABLY WORK BETTER FOR A LAWN MOWER !!!!

      Does this 4in lift require any steering linkage changes? Is there only one shock included?
