Comments about Rancho RS5000 Shock Absorber:

Self installed on 2010 Chevrolet Colorado LT Crew-Cab 4x4 w/V8 option at 25k miles. Do not have Z71 option so wheels are 16 inch. Everything was easy to install except for the boot. There was no included instructions or none could be found on the Rancho website. It took two of us and a bench vise to get the boot installed without ripping it. My truck is white so the shocks look good installed. I was looking for a higher performance shock to replace the OEM for handling rougher road conditions without spending allot and these were my choice after several hours of researching on the web. I now have a few hunderd miles on them and am satisfied with my investment so far.

      I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis on how much rise to set with shocks before replacing the new shocks.
