Default Rough Country 9000 Shock q's

Rough Country Shock 9000 nitro series

Your views on them - good/bad?

Should I look at getting a non-nitro filled shock?

Looks like i'm going on #3 for replacement.

Mine leak out of the top seal so much they leave their mark in the drive way.

Every time I see one leaking, I unbolt it and take it out and can see it's dead, I can expand and collapse them with ease (probably 2 pounds of force) , and they won't re-expand again.



I'm glad these have lifetime warranty's

If your having that much trouble with them I'd go with something else! Not worth the hastle if you have to keep changing them IMO

I've got a pair that have been sitting in my bedroom for a year and a half now. They ride nice.

I'll be going down to Jeeperz Creeperz this week to pick up my d30. You're welcome to ride along with me if you'd like.
