I don't usually 'fiddle' with the settings on my 9000's - having established not long after I fitted them that '4' was fine on the front and '3' was ok on the rears.

Thats how they have been for over 2 years.

Recently however we hitched a caravan to the Surf and I attempted to change the rears from '3' to '4'. NO LUCK!! I am unable to move them beyond the range 1-2-3.

Anyone else had this problem??

Are you sure they are 9000's and not 5000's... Because they normally go in increments of two which would mean that you number 3 is actually number 5 which is the maximum....
Sorry if thats a dumb comment, but my 9000's go in lots of two...Which would mean 5 settings...

Definitely 9000's - used to have 5 settings, but now can't get the rears past '3'. Fronts are on '4'. I feel that if I force the adjusters they may break.

Its common for them to sieze up.. its another failure with them. the oring behind the adjuster which is a cam screw, just gets crap in them, and they sieze. Try for warranty on em. but since they are 9000 not 9x you will have little hope.

Thanks Truckster - I thought something like that may have happened.

Just went through my receipts - bought them in October 01 - now 3 1/2 years old and some 80,000 K's on them.

Well out of waranty I would have thought.

Still work fine - no leaks - but cant adjust any 'harder' - only can go 'softer' .

Almost sounds what my wife is up against! LOL

cheers ...
