Had Rancho 9000 adjustable shocks fitted to the GU wagon yesterday. The in-cab kit is still sitting there until I work out where to mount it. Has anybody fitted one to a GU? Where did you put it? I'm loathe to have any holes drilled into a year old dash if I can help it?

Andrew, I have a kit waiting to be fitted too, was planning to fit it below the radio, where the storage box is. If you remove the cover from the radio etc, you will find that this box is screwed into place. Remove the screws, make up a metal plate and Bobs your uncle. I also plan to fit the compressor behind the blank panel for the LHS air bag. Not sure if yours has a LHS air bag or not? Hope this helps.

I wasn't sure if there is enough depth in that panel for the guages. They need a bit of room so the air hoses don't kink. I was planning to put the compressor under the passenger seat. I haven't got a LHS airbag, but installing another glove box / storage compartment in that area has been on the 'to-do' list since I bought the vehicle.

Remove the ashtray if its the same as GQ, and it fits in there..

dont drill any holes or anythign like that, easier to patch up when you throw it to the bleep house in few mths.

my rear 9x's have DIED AGAIN... CRAP QUALITY...

Was speaking to the ARB man just yesterday about shockies.
He gave me an example of a trip up north here in WA to a fishing spot called steep point. Roughly 180km of corrigations from main road to get there.
He said he's seen too many ranchos RS9000 that don't last the trip there and back. Reakons the tough dogs crap all over them and are cheaper too.
Might be OK for other conditions but seams like they just can't handle the corrigations.
