Questions & Answers

A 2005 Jeep Wrangler with a 3 liter engine is my vehicle. Is this going to work for 25 rough country lifts?

A 2" lift was used to mount mine. It may be necessary to order one size wider to ensure that you do not overextend the shoes. The degree to which you flex the suspension depends on how much you do. Though I don't like them, I do like them.

A 2 would be best for me. RC lift with the springs of 5 inches. What if I have a lift and RC springs installed?

It depends on how high your lift is. If it's between 2 and 3 inches,

Need some help with a Jeep Wrangler SE 97 technical issue The shocks will lift if the shocks are lifted by two Does the coil spring on the 3" need to be replaced as well? Are shock works compressed able to be damaged?

For those with 2 inch coils, this is the perfect suspension. For those with stock suspension, stay away from the 2in lift shocks, they will not fully extend or compress as soon as possible. It's best to go with the reg Rancho rs5000x since they are AA6

The 1999 Jeep Cherokee XJlimited I have has a front 2 inch leveling kit (using spacers) and a rear 2 inch shackle lift. What's the difference between the two?

We'll just have to see. My Wrangler was lifted by 2" with these on and I almost was limited on shock length when I flexed them As long as you're not overly concerned with the amount of articulation and the maximum axle drop out, these will do the job. In case you don't have a slip yoke eliminator and longer break lines, be sure to get them now. I wish you good luck!

Selected User Reviews For Rancho RS5000X Gas Shocks set compatible with 97-06 Jeep Wrangler TJ with 2-3" lift kits

This shock has the ability to literally soak up potholes like no other
5/5

My 99 TJ now sounds like a metal military movement, with Metallica's Metal Militia overpowering the sound of the exhaust and bald eagles screeching in the distance whenever I go full flex. They have the power to catch potholes so well that potholes feel shame and fill themselves rather than be sucked up by shocks. The last time I sat behind the wheel of a Jeep, I was 16 years old. There's a lot of Royce in it, and a lot of Cadillac Deville in there. It doesn't matter. I would buy them again, and I recommend it to you as well.

I urge you to paint them
4/5

Having recently acquired a 97 TJ, I recently added a budget lift. From what I've read, it is possible to run the lift on Despite that, there is no way around it. In the beginning, it was functional but after a month, I got used to the incredibly rough ride and knew I needed another air suspension. I asked around on some Jeep forums and the Rancho RS5000X came highly recommended almost everywhere I looked. They rust quickly due to an EXTREMELY thin coat of paint they come with. The only complaint I saw was mirrored here They rust quickly due to an EXTREMELY thin coat of paint. I installed them yesterday and the difference is night and day. Thus, I believe this is the correct way to express it. As a result, the ride is so smooth now it feels like I am driving my 2013 Mazda3, which is significantly better than anything I thought I was going to feel. I'll tell you what the headline says now. I decided to paint them, because the paint was so thin that even before I scuffed them up to prepare for painting, you could see through it. look, you can clear coat them or, if you prefer, you can take them to a local body shop and ask if they can clear coat them the next time they paint a car with leftover Make sure to scuff up the painted areas with a scouring pad before taking it to the recycler. It wasn't a cost to me since my father works at a body shop, but I can imagine they would charge to do this and you now know the shocks will be much better protected than if you simply bought spray paint at the hardware store or walmart. Enjoy Please let me know if you are as happy with them as I am with mine.

Minor The nut for the top of my front shock did not come with one of them and I had to go to a hardware store to purchase The former isn't awful, but the latter is.

With a 3" lift, this is the ideal length for a 2003 TJ Rubicon
5/5

As it happens, I had some Bilsteins previously that were extremely A Wrangler fitted with Bilsteins allows you to know whether the quarter you just ran over was heading your way or not. Quadratec sold me those previous shocks, telling me they were perfect for the 3" lift, but they turned out to be It's been a long time. You can tell if the shock is too long if you need to compress it quite a bit in order to line up the bolt holes. The shock should be compressed by a couple of inches at ride height. But it's no good riding around with it almost completely compressed. I hesitated to order these shocks after already having stiff riding shocks that turned out also BE TOO long, so I was concerned I would have to return them. A great deal like that can't be refused, can it? I am very pleased to report that both sides of the front and rear bumpers are perfectly matched to my three-inch There is a noticeable improvement in "plushness" over the previous ride. Although we are talking about a Wrangler, it will still ride like one, but it'll be much less rough. Since I usually drive about 7 mph offroad, I am confident they will perform well! I have not yet tried them out on any trails but I am sure they will perform well. I will return to update my review if I encounter any issues. In this case, I have no concern with the finish since I don't live in the rust belt. There is one thing you may notice about the rear shocks I did not use the huge plastic "boot" that comes with them. The rear shocks are never difficult for me without boots. One less way for water and dirt to gather inside is nice, In case you dislike the look of plastic shock boots as well, grab some diagonal cutters or heavy duty scissors and carefully cut around the lip of the boot where it surrounds the edge of the saucer towards that upper mount. The boot should slide out easily. For those of you with a Jeep Wrangler TJ that you purchased with a lift already installed, I've attached some photos to show you how high 3" would get from the floor to the bottom of the stock fender flares when compared to the stock one. 32 is about the size of the tires. The tallest person in our office stands 75 inches You can also use these if your current ride height is approximately the same as mine. We wish you the best of luck on your adventures!.

It was an excellent performance
5/5

It was a couple of days ago that I put them on. Although I was hoping they would be a little smoother after reading the customer review that claimed they turned their Jeep into a rolls royce, perhaps they still need some break-in time and the 33s I have on my TJ currently are also a contributor to the rough ride. Anyway, despite the rough surfaces, I am blown away by how much better my Jeep performs than before! My previous set of hydro shocks were best described as boat shocks, so yes, it was right up there with a boat. Going on the highway at high speed (not that you should go high speed in a Jeep) was pretty scary on uneven road surfaces. The sectioned concrete highway was downright dangerous, causing We are finally rid of all those problems! I know that my Jeep is no Audi or any other luxury vehicle, but it feels so much more secure Those side-to-side motions are completely gone, and it even corners better, goes on the interstate better, and goes on the highway better. It is much easier now to drive in general, and I am more confident in particular. The seat has a very cushy feel. I look forward to seeing how they get with new tires and the passage of time.
