Product Description

Why buy this product?

Maybe because it’s the best selling aftermarket 4WD shock in the world? What about the 3 year unlimited kilometre warranty? The Rancho RS5000 shock absorber provides exceptional performance for on and off-road use at a price that makes many other brands look like a rip off!

Where is it made?


What are the features?

1 ) A micro-polished cylinder wall and glass filled Teflon seal: Representing the finest of build-quality which enhances the shock’s amazing durability and heat-reduction qualities.

2) Hardened and double-chromed rod and double-welded mounts: Stands up to the job in the toughest rough-road conditions.

3) 10-stage velocity-sensitive valving: A comprehensive valving range which responds appropriately to the changing terrain and results in a safer, and better-controlled ride.

4) Foam-Cell construction: Controls the oil for consistent performance in tough conditions.

5) Double-wall construction: Provides greater off-road protection against rocks, stone spray, logs etc. Unlike mono-tube shocks (Bilstein, De Carbon, some Pro-Comp shocks, etc.) the pistons of the RS5000 hocks do not run in the outer tube. This ensures that the Rancho shocks will be unlikely to fail if the outer tube is dented.

6) 240-hour salt spray-resistant finish: Superior protection. Because you know what salt does to poorly-protected steel.

7) Disc-type piston bleed and coaxial pin and slider base valve: For increased sensitivity to rapid changes in terrain, and for precise compression damping.

8) Softer on compression than rebound damping rate: For superior ride-quality and performance both on and off-road.

What do people say about the RS5000 Shocks?

Ask Dennis Moulang. Dennis was one of our first Rancho customers. He bought a set of Rancho RS5000 shock absorbers way back in 1990.

Seventeen years later those same shocks are still performing well; and the only thing they have needed is new bushes. Incredible! Especially when you learn that the Moulang’s 4WD has clocked up 400,000 kms – and has already worn out the original engine.

Do I need anything else to install them?

No, these are a bolt on replacement and require no additional parts.

How much are they?

$280 a pair including delivery anywhere in Australia.
