ok so I got a 8" lift in my 1ton 1979/1991 dodge diesel short box and it rides worse then a tank!! and theres no flex what so ever. so I checked out the shackles to make shure they wernt siezed and threre not and its has rancho shocks in it any ideas to make it ride softer???? oh and the rear has the factory block in it:(

its because of the increased arch in the springs remove or open up the bands that go around the springs to allow them a little more flex and to fan out a bit

lose the block do a shackle reverse so u lose the tension shackle and rancho 5000's suck ...and are not helping the situation...

My 83 rides like a tank. Unknown white shocks, and 6" of leaf spring lift..

Apparently the Rancho 9000s are pretty good with the adjustability and all.
