Rancho Front RS5000X Shock Absorber for 2018, 2019, 2020 and 2021 Jeep JL Wranglers and 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiators with Stock Ride Height to a 1-1/2" Lift.

Rancho has furthered its mission to make your ride more comfortable and offers this Front RS5000X Shock Absorber to help minimize the "rough" off-road ride with new and innovative technology. They've designed this shock specifically for the 2018-2021 Jeep Wrangler JL or 2020-2021 Jeep Gladiator with stock ride height up to a 1-1/2-inch lift.

- Gas Pressurization of Shock
- Low-Friction, Self-Lubricating Seal
- Tuned Compression Control Valve
- Black Rubber Bushings with Boot
- Double-Welded Loops
- Sold Individually (1)
- Fits Either Driver or Passenger Side

For early fluid flow when hitting obstacles or potholes and reducing the harshness of impact, this shock integrates progressive engagement valving. The design includes progressive rebound and compression discs that will engage the valving at lower frequencies to help control the motion energy. A custom-tuned clamp disc base valve helps regulate fluid transfer during compression cycles to absorbs impacts without disc flutter for better handling and control and uneven terrain. Another important and unique feature is the patented rebound valving system and advanced compression phase. This process was developed by ride experts to elevate the overall control and performance of your JL on and off the road while reducing body roll and preventing rod over-extension inside the shock.

This shock's twin body measures 2-1/4" in diameter for a greater fluid capacity to keep the shock operating cooler and provides increased control and performance at different speeds on a variety of terrain. The 35mm bore and full displaced compression valving displace more fluid than comparable rod displacing valving for amplified shock motion control, and the sintered iron, fluon-banded piston provides smoother piston travel and greater responsiveness to changing road conditions. Gas pressurization reduces air-to-oil mixture (foaming) and shock fade while boosting spring rate. Engineers put special attention on stress areas, like mounting points, and used double-welded loops for added strength and durability over time. To further prolong performance and allow for quicker rebound and smoother compression, Rancho has integrated a low friction self-lubricating seal that retains gas and oil. Natural black rubber bushings and a red polyvinyl accordion protective boot are included to protect the shock from dust, debris, and other contaminants. 

Please Note: This shock absorber is sold individually. Two (2) are required per vehicle.
