Rancho – RS7000 Shocks Review [2021]

RS 7000 has a what’s called an internal floating piston so there’s no overflow tube or sleeve for the oil in this in this shock there is a main piston attached to its piston rod as piston rod and shaft and goes through the main body there is a floating piston that separates from the main piston. And below that is the nitrogen gas chamber. As this main piston is forcing oil down onto the other piston it’s creating more pressure within the gas chamber which is enacting on the shock oil the purpose of all that nitrogen gas charge is to prevent cavitation of the shock oil.
Cavitation of oil happens when the shock oil starts heating up a lot and it turns bubbly which means cavitating and when it turns bubbly then that piston is just flying through the oil and not having any dampening for your vehicle so nitrogen gas is there to keep that um that relationship between the piston and the oil consistent.

The RS 7000 is a twin-tube gas-charged shock. It is very beefy as these shocks come in basically two cylinders. In some vehicles, you can’t actually just have that thick of a shock.  

You’re going to feel a lot more road feedback a lot more bump feedback but that’s you actually kind of want that when you’re loading up the rear of your truck with a bunch of gear or you’re towing or you have winches and heavy-duty bumpers on the front you don’t want your truck with a lot of sways or a lot of body roll so to remove that kind of behavior on your vehicle you would make the settings firmer because that really helps out with the response of the vehicle and handling of the vehicle. 

It maintains the most important thing which is control traction. Those are the kind of things that enthusiasts are more concerned about off-road or really using their vehicle to the fullest extent.
