Anyone have the Rancho RC9700/RC9600 Remote Control kit? What is the differance between the RC9700 and the RC9600 modles?
Are the remotes worth the $140.00?
I was resently at Tellico and thinking the remotes would have been handy to be able to adjust the shocks to the terrain.

I am not 100% sure but i believe that one is for 4 shocks and the other is for 2 shocks only. The problem most people have is that they make the air lines too short for a super flexie rig. My daily driver is Dodge ram with 9000s and the 4 shock remote. I love it! Once i got the lines right it was perfect to adjust to any driving condition. For $140 it is most likly just the 2 shock unit. The 4 shock is almost $300.00 just by itself.

So do you have the 4 shock model?
If ya do, does it control the four shocks independently, or is it two controls? One for the front and one for the back?

The 9600 sets all shocks hooked to it to the same setting. The 9700 has two separate air circuits, one for front one for the back. You can hook up to 4 shocks to each circuit using the supplied manifold. Either model sets the manifold (and all the shocks hooked to it) to a given air pressure. Pretty simple system, small compressor to pump in the air. check valve to hold it in, a gauge to read the pressure and a valve stem to bleed off air to lower the pressure.

Instead of using the 9700 for front and back, could I set it up for left side and right side? When I was at Tallico several weeks ago, I was in several hairy situations and had set the two sides (by hand) differently. Low side stiff and the high side soft to help prevent roll. Is this possable?

i don't see why not. but it may suck if you want to put stuff in the back of your rig and have a saggy arse. to bad you can't control all 4 corners independently! <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">
