I had the RCX Nitro 9000's on my NBS cranked with keys and they were garbage, so I wouldn't recommend those...I went through two sets in 4 months. Cleared the 285's on stockers though with the crank no problem. Now I've got the RCX 2.2 Series shocks and they're much better I'm quite happy with them..Ride is a little stiff but not "rough" like the Nitros..they've got a firm ride onroad but nice rebound and fairly smooth ride offroad. I'm running the 285's on a 17x9 now and had quite a bit of rub, had to trim and still need to :sawzall: a bit more.

Hope I helped a bit!!

Try going on their livechat and ask one of the reps..I didn't buy mine. I bitched enough about having to go through two sets of the Nitros that they sent me the 2.2's as an upgrade under warranty. Im sure there's better shocks out there but like I said, I've done some moderatin wheelin' with them and they're pretty good. I was pretty happy with the customer service I got from them aswell!
