Default shocks???

hey fellas,

what shocks are most of you all using? i was thinking of getting some new ones and was wanting what i need to look at. i remember a long time ago there was a discussion on this and i thought the largest was the rancho's.... good/bad/right/wrong????? let me know...

oh by the way,
lockers are in the turttle. front/rear with lockouts..... easy as pie.... just
needed time to get it done.... doesn't turn for crap when locked in and on cement, but can't wait till i find some mud and rocks....
on that note.... has anyone upgraded there power steering to something like agr's gearbox and pump... may need this upgrade, especially the gearbox. starting to puke a little. noticed this when i was trying to turn with it locked in on cement and going straight was the only thing happening

later...
soupy

Hey Soupy, long time no see.

I bought shocks from ABLinn - fronts and rears are the same iirc.

NOOOO!!!! Here we go again! <g>



FWIW, I am using Rancho 9000's. IIRC, they're 9118's, spec'd for a Grand Wagoneer with a 3" lift. Yes, I'm using the same ones front and rear.

You remember incorrectly.

The front and rears are different. I use the Rancho's since I couldn't find anything else. Shocks don't do much on the M715. Get the cheapest thing you can find that will fit.
