    ARB,

    I heard merong OME shocks specifically developed for the REVO. Is this accurate? So the valving of which is most suitable to the weight/design of the REVO suspension, hence, will end up performing better compared to other shocks (that may have been designed for a different vehicle/type). Did I get your right?

    BlackVX, you got PM.

    Thanks.

    yes there are OME shocks for the Revo. The choice of what brand depends, each brand has its own advantages and disadvantages.

    I changed my shocks to RANCHOS...malaki ang improvement sa handling at stability ng ride. I also noticed that the 'tagtag' factor has been reduced, and the body swaying has been controlled.

    I put RS5000 in front, and RS9000 at the rear. I'm riding on #2 setting (rear). Great ride and control.

    The expense is worth the additional driving pleasure and comfort.

    Thanks for BlackVX and ARB for your inputs.

    Sir, how much per piece did the rancho 5000 and rancho 9000 cost you?
    Are they both liquid type? im planning to replace my original shock within the week..

    ASAP reply will highly be appreciated. Thanks

    not the last one-cause its the overload spring, the second from the last is to be inverted or removed. and you should be reminded that you cannot load anymore heavier things when you alter stock rear suspension.

    Ako rin, my ride is a 02 GLX but when you sit at the middle, super bouncy, stock pa rims ko them OEM mags of Revo GLX (14 inch with 195/70/r14).

    I'm thinking of changing my shocks to either OME (Old Man) or Pro Comp. I read that these 2 are the most comfy. Pro Comp is cheaper by 100% than OME, so I'm thinking to go Pro Comp. Any feedback? Do you think this upgrade is worth the money? Is there noticeable gain?

    Please enlighten. thanks.
