I know RS9012s are the 14 inch travel 33 inch extended shocks.

Is there a RS5012 model which is an RS5000 model shock, 33 inch extended, 14 inches travel, EB1 ends?

Want to order shocks after destroying my two front ones, the RS5000s are readily available and relatively cheap around here.

Thanks.

The 5012 is a soft valve shock as compared to the 5112 that is the standard valve but does not have nearly as much travel I would never buy a 5012 again I had a set for a short while and just sold them for $20 and bought some 9012's and they are so much better the 5012 did not seem to do anything. just my thoughts

I think 5134 is the long travel regular valved shock. There is one anyway, I could be remembering the number wrong. I have them and they are a little on the stiff side if anything. Pretty good though, and about 1/4 inch more travel than a 9012. Hey that extra 1/4 inch matters.

I bought the 5000 series because all the people who had 9000's told me what settings they ran their shocks at but then when I looked at there shocks they were even set at different numbers at different corners of the vehicle. after the novelty wore off they just left them where they were.

FYI, the pirate bible under the tech section has shock charts <IMG SRC="smilies/wink.gif" border="0">

I like my shocks cheap, if possible. The ranchos are available locally, so that's why I'm using those.

Chad,

I know you wanted to go local (and then there's the whole shipping thing, and the Canada thing), but 4WDH has a shock sale right now. Buy three get one free (Rancho) and others are Buy two, get two free>
