My truck will mainly be used on the street maybe some track
time here and there when she's finished, light to no pulling
And no off-road use. Its lowered 2in. I've been looking into
The ranchero 9000xl for the front and rear & was wondering if
Any one is currently running them or have ran them??

haven't heard many things about the 9000xl's
I would think it would be nice since they have 9 adjustable levels
to really tune your ride.


Would it be beneficial to do a rear 4-link w/coilovers??
and as well as the front or are there other options to explore?

Have done a bit of research on all this stuff, but most of the threads
I have read through were others doing it on newer trucks and or there
Lifted rides, as far as 4-links go, ect ect..

I'm fairly new to the suspension side of things so I would like to be
Steered into the right direction.

And to answer some questions right off the bat, yes I do realize how expensive
all this stuff can get, I am not going for the cool factor, really just want a suspension set up I can tune/dial in for track/street driving conditions.

opinions and or any help is highly appreciated :thumbsup:

I personally wouldn't go with there steering stabilizer. maybe others have had luck with the 9000's? not dead set on them, the video does change my mind a bit now but still looking around, and would like more opinions!!

Plans are to pretty much keep it stock height, if anything go a bit lower.

You really don't need to 4link your truck for the relatively light use you are talking about. A set of Bilstien 5100s would probably do you fine. They have a firm, controlled ride, which should be perfect for the track, but are not so stiff that you will be uncomfortable on your daily drives. The Carli stabiizer, or the Thuren stabilizer are the only ones I would go with over the stock one. They are both more effective than the dual white body stabilizers out there. A set of caltracs would probably be a good investment for you.

I know a 4-link might be a bit much to think about. use to haul stuff with my truck but don't anymore. just trying to achieve the best overall ride and performance. But thanks for the help, I will most definitely look into the carli stabilizer, and as well as check out the 5100's.
