Rancho Long Travel Suspension Systems for Yamaha and Polaris UTV's
Oct 29, 2008
We haven't been paying a lot of attention to the UTV market, but have you seen the price of fuel lately? It seems like the UTV market has exploded and we attribute a lot of that to the huge fun you can have with these vehicles at a relatively decent price point both in terms of initial purchase as well as operating cost. Like everything off-road related, the desire to be the big dog creates a bustling after-market industry. And just like in the 4x4 market, Rancho is one of the big players. Rancho has announced the release of two race-inspired suspension systems engineered to conquer any type of terrain - sand, rocks or off-road trails - tackled by drivers of 2007-08 Polaris Ranger RZR and 2004-08 Yamaha Rhino vehicles.
The new Rancho systems for the Polaris Ranger RZR and Yamaha Rhino feature highly engineered suspension designs and proven coil-over shocks, making it easy to upgrade the UTV's stock suspension. While dramatically enhancing ride quality, the new Rancho systems also deliver increased suspension travel, improved ground clearance and enhanced stability. Both systems include front and rear Rancho nine-position adjustable shocks.
"After receiving such strong, positive feedback at the DealerExpo in Indianapolis this spring, we knew we were going to push right into developing a Polaris RZR system," said Rancho General Manager Joe Pase. "We're one of the few suspension manufacturers focused on developing suspensions that can handle a wide range of environments."
The Rancho Polaris Ranger RZR system (p/n RS10101) includes billet 6061 aluminum upper control 6-in. A-arms with contrast machining, HSLA steel lower control arms designed for high-clearance, and exclusive self-lubricating control arm bushings. Each Rancho RZR kit also includes high-strength inner tie rod ends, front and rear axle shafts, rod ends with high-alignments, and replacement front and rear brakelines.
The Rancho Rhino long-travel suspension system features billet 6061 aluminum upper control 4-in. A-arms with contrast machining, HSLA steel lower control arms, exclusive self-lubricating control arm bushings, and high-strength tie rod ends and inner tie rod. This system is available for 2004-07 Yamaha Rhino models (p/n RS10001) and 2008 Yamaha Rhino models (p/n RS10011).
Each Rancho system includes the company's popular fully adjustable RS9000XLT coil-over front and rear shocks, which feature the exclusive nine- position adjustable MyRide Tuning System. Custom enginered for UTV models, Rancho RS9000XL shocks are individually valved for each application and include premium self-lubricating bearings, an anodized aluminum reservoir with stainless steel braided hose and a custom-rate Eibachr coil spring. Rancho RS9000XL shocks are available in the very popular liquid metallic silver finish.
Every Rancho system includes all of the necessary components to complete the installation. No spindle modification or drilling is required during installation. Stock wheels can be re-used.
