The world’s most popular fully-adjustable shock absorber
for light trucks and sport utility vehicles now carries an “X”
rating as a result of an all-new design that delivers significantly
increased ride-tuning capabilities and unsurpassed performance
in all driving conditions, on- and off-road.
The new Rancho
RS9000X, now available for most popular domestic and import light
trucks and SUVs, represents an entirely new level of technology
that allows drivers to easily “dial in” their ride
for precise control in any off-road, street or highway driving
situation. The shock’s advanced tri-tube (reserve/intermediate/primary)
design yields 17 times greater fluid area than its predecessor,
ensuring exceptional performance under a full range of load and
temperature conditions, according to Bill Johnson, director of
engineering for Rancho Suspension.
RS9000X isn’t simply a case of raising the bar in terms
of self-adjustability and control; this new shock completely changes
the rules for on- and off-road performance driving,”
Johnson said. “There is no other shock in the world
that delivers this level of driver-tuned precision and comfort
over such an extreme range of environmental conditions.”
Like its predecessor,
the RS9000X is fully adjustable while mounted on the vehicle,
but the new shock significantly increases the precision of tunable
compression and rebound damping through nine, rather than five,
metered settings. The RS9000X also features Rancho’s exclusive
15-stage velocity-sensitive valving for enhanced stability and
includes a 16-mm-diameter hardened and double-chromed rod,
piston with Teflon band and an all-new rod guide design that reduces
friction and improves flow for enhanced ride comfort.
has released an optional new in-cab remote control kit –
No. RS99700 – that permits adjustment of the front and/or
rear RS9000X shocks while the vehicle is in motion.
