Rancho Shock ?

I've been beating my RS9000XL ADJ's pretty bad lately(rear). I've already had to turn the adj facing in from knocking them off. Does anyone know If I can run them upside down? They have a pretty thick body and I can't keep them off the rocks. One or two more hits and they'll be either leaking or crushed bad enough to contact the inside of shock and start rubing.
Thanks

You can't run them upside down. Have you removed them and compressed/extended them yet? They are a pretty tough shock.

i've had mine hit rocks and my RK trackbar bracket, wondering if using mounts to move up and back would help. however, the poly mounts are about the price of 2 completely new rancho shocks sooo i backed off that idea

Thanks, and yes I've pulled them when I turned the adj towards the axle. They are fine for now, just looking into options for keeping them running trouble free. BTW, these are the smoothest cheap shocks I've ever run. I absolutely love the ride on these shocks.
Thanks

I just installed a set of the 7000mt's on my jku and they are a little smoother than the aev 5100 bilsteins i was running before. It was a tough decision to go with those over the 9100's

I love the 7000MT's on my JKU, I did go from 9000's so it took a bit to get used to the ride. But love them!!
