Being that Rancho is a Tenneco brand and so is Monroe, I would venture a guess and say Monroe does.

Tenneco is the manufacturer of Monroe and Rancho.

don't the RANCHO shocks have a lifetime warranty?

I've got about a dozen 5000's to get replaced.

POS but ok price

anyone have reccomedations for another cheap brand?

I'm going SOA next month and am still not sure what I will run.

Yes, Rancho has a lifetime warranty, Tenneco makes Rancho 5000, 9000 & RSX, Monroe and Procomp 3000 & 9000 series. Although not as cheap, the bottom line Bilstiens are better than the top line Ranchos, there's Doestch Tech, and the new Pro Comp MX6 is a really good adjustable shock believe it or not, as is the Edelbrock Monotube for a non-adjustable.

Not a "Performance shock".. OEM stuff is made to different specs due to cost restraints... but would put them against the factory OEM non-bilstien stuff.. I was mainly talking about the aftermarket upgrade stuff. It isnt fair to compare a Bilstien 7100 or 9100 to a Rancho 5000.. but the Bilstien 5100 series IMO would kick any Ranchos 5000, RSX, or 9000's ass on quality & longevity. From that level is just gets better.
