Tenneco expands Rancho shock and strut line

Nov. 8, 2011

Tenneco Inc. reports its Rancho RS5000 shock and strut line now includes 43 new part numbers for coverage of several global vehicle models.

First launched in 1985, the company has continued to refine its design and add coverage. Ideal for light trucks and SUVs, the Rancho RS5000 shock absorbers combine a twin-tube cellular gas design with 10-stage velocity-sensitive valving to deliver a comfortable on-highway ride and controlled off-road performance. RS5000 shocks feature an expanded tube for increased fluid capacity and reduced internal temperatures.

Each shock includes sturdy double-wall construction; glass-filled PTFE piston seals; 5/8-in.-diameter hardened, double-chromed rod; and 1-3/8-in.-diameter full-displacement piston.

Rancho also finishes every RS5000 shock and strut in the brand's easily recognizable, vibrant white and red color scheme. Each shock and strut body is clear coated, providing an extended life. Rancho also includes a red boot to protect the piston rod.

All Rancho RS5000 shocks include all detailed and illustrated installation instructions inside the product box. RS5000 shocks are offered with a limited lifetime warranty.
