Hi everyone, hoping for some advice. Need new shocks for the 80 has 4inch lift and was leaning to tough dog 45mm adjustables but have just seen rancho's new shock which is the same size but has longer travel. Wondering if anyone has some first hand knowledge of the rancho or tough dog in these sizes. cheers
Been here, been there, goin again!!

I don't have lift on my vehicle nevertheless the mechanics of the shock would be the same. I have got Rancho RSX shocks on the rear had them all round on my previous vehicle as well I find they are very good and really perform on corrugated roads.

does anyone use Toyota shock absorbers? My old mate put monroes on his 80 and they only lasted a year on the bitumen.

Nothing wrong with my originanal toyota shockies after some long and hard miles.

Toyota dont make shocks to suit a 4" lift.

Whant ever shocks you choose, They must NOT extend past the length of the coils,

Why?

I'm glad you asked, there is nothing stopping the coil spring from dislodging or falling out, except the shock absorber, If you put longer shocks that allow the axle to drop too far, you run the risk of popping a spring out.
