Shock advice?

Greetings rovers,
Does anyone know the best, most affordable place to buy a set of Rancho 9012 rear shocks for my '94 soft top? I'm pairing them with a new set of Rockware shock mounts, and just wanted the best deal. Anybody know of anywhere?

done...$150 for the 2 rear 9012's.

It's gonna get some legs, boys!

In addition to the new Rancho shocks and Rockware shock mounts, I'll be installing new Rovertyme drop out cones and some beautiful new Rovertyme extended ss brake lines.

Hopefully, it'll be ready for the Uwharrie Safari in April...any of you guys planning on attending?

That's a great deal! Are they the 9 or 5 ways?

Where Uwharrie Safari is going to be? I want to wheel in the east coast this year and I'm planning to drive the 90

Here is a page from a local rover club that I am in that helps run the safari: http://www.carolinarovers.org/safari2002/
The page is kind of old, but as far as I know the info is still pretty good. As for the date, this year it is April 23-25 in Uwharrie National Forest, NC.

Yousef,
it would be great if you came out east to do some wheeling! The Uwharrie Safari is a great event with some pretty challenging trails. It's like "Tellico Lite." Last year it rained for a w few days before the event which made the normally difficult trails almost impossible. Wet clay...straight up...oh yeah...it was fun.

The only damage I sustained was to my right rear quarter panel where I slid into a j**p, but I witnessed a blown out clutch in a rangie, a blown head gasket in a 90, and a crushed fender on a disco. And that was just with the (somewhat conservative) group that I rode with.

Go to their website: www.carolinarovers.org and check it out. I hope to see you there!

tom

p.s.
My Rancho's came from Sierra Bronco...$150 incl. shipping.
