G'day
Just replacing my shockers for a gu patrol, bought rancho 5000's alround. They have a solid body with the telescopic shaft (covered by flexible cover) which part of the shockers go on top. Ie does the telescopic shaft go on top or bottom.
Help I'm racing the clock (and the sun)
cheers

John,

That was not very nice, but very funny.
Should be in your part of the world in July.

The body of the shocker mounts to the axle,and the telescoping bit ( the shaft with the boot on it) mounts to the chassis....the top.

Don't know much about GU's.

Mine were Rancho 9000's (the adjustable ones) on an 03 Navara. Just couldn't get a right setting for them and they went off quickly when used on corrugated roads. Ended up putting the factory ones back on. Been good ever since.

Mind you, I kept the 9000's onthe rear, set them to 3 (softish) and put some load levelers on.

cheers

I went through 3 sets, threw them in the bin in the end.

my first set lasted about 3 mths, they were 9000's.. they didnt have them anymore, only 9x's.. They wanted to charge me the difference in $ between the 2.. Not my fault your stuff is not up to it...
