Rancho Quicklift & RS9000XL Install - 2020 Silverado 1500 Z71 RST

Some may call us crazy for going back to Rancho, but our company mission is to test what our audience and customers are interested in. There’s no denying that the Rancho Quicklift and RS9000XL adjustable shocks are one of the most popular dampers in our industry, along with a top seller here at Shock Surplus. Though let the record stand in that we’re not fans (in the slightest) of the Rancho shocks that come from the factory, GM needs to revise those designs badly.

With that said, let's dive into the installation process where we go through how to install shocks and struts on this 2020 Silverado 1500. This same install procedure can be applied to almost every 2007-2022 Silverado 1500, Sierra 1500, and other GMT900 platform vehicles. The suspension system has remained almost identical this point.

Important Notes

  • We also install the Bilstein Upper Control Arms, which require cutting of factory stops. If you are keeping your factory arms, this step isn’t needed.
  • Rancho Quicklifts do not require new UCAs to work and drive properly, the UCAs will add no additional function for a daily driver.
