Has anyone tried the Rough Country shocks? I found a hell of a deal on a set of 8000's {actually thy have 9000's also but I think hose may be to stiff}
Any body have input?

I have them on my 2000 Off Road package with a 2" coil spacer on the front. They are nice, not too stiff but great off road. I am pleased with them. You will need to shim the front lower mounts though to keep them from rattling.

did you guys get the 8000's or the 9000's, also I've been hearing alot about these shims...what is everyone using, simple flat washers or actual specially designed shims just for these shocks?

I got the 8000's. For the shim, I used a fender washer and you can tape it to the shock BEFORE you install it. ;)

I also used the 8000's but I didnt use spacers for the lower mounts. I just made sure they were as tight as I could get them with a 1/2" drive socket wrench and then checked them a week later and was able to get another half turn out of em. Havent had any problems with them coming loose and i've had them on for about 8 months.

I posting for your help...I am new to this forum but how in the heck do you create a new thread and post it? I wonder if you might also know about forum member's experience with using daystar coil lift systems. Might you also know where I could purchase ram air hood scoops for a 2004 ram 1500?
