My eye those are 9000 shocks in the link. My 9000's are way beefier diameter wise and metallic silver. Pricewise, about what I spent. But, when I got my kit, Rancho had a mail in rebate, they sent me a 450 dollar debit card. Otherwise, my worn out old shocks would most likely still be in use.

My kit came with the u bolts for the add a leaf.

I just love how they state that the lift will allow 32" tires on stock wheels, then a few lines later states that new wheels with higher backspacing recommended...lol...but I haven't heard anything negative about the rancho lift, calmini yes, but not rancho...I personally would go with AC's kit before Rancho, but that's just me...but it looks like a complete kit overall

Still an AC kit, just has Rancho shocks I believe.

Looks like a pretty good kit for the money. I personally haven't had experience with Rancho shocks, but I'm a die hard Bilstein fan so that would be the only negative for me.

Oh ya, duh...lol...I would have went with the bilstein package...I know they have one...give them a call, I bet it's cheaper

Edit, the HD bilstein is cheaper, the 5100 isnt

I think those tires look great with the lift. Did you toss the sway bars?

Your lift didn't come with shackles? It shows them in the pic...maybe they just forgot to change it
