RANCHO® SUSPENSION SYSTEM OFFERS COVERAGE OF 2013 CHEVROLET SILVERADO, GMC SIERRA

Rancho Brand’s SEMA Booth to Showcase the Silverado 1500

Las Vegas, NV, Oct. 30, 2012 – Rancho performance suspension and shocks has released a coverage extension of its popular Chevy Silverado/GMC Sierra ½-ton suspension system to include 2013 truck models. The kit also will be showcased in the 2012 Rancho/DynoMax SEMA booth (No. 25131).

Rancho performance suspensions, ride control products and related accessories are manufactured and marketed by Tenneco (NYSE: TEN). This kit is available now at performance retailers throughout North America.

The 2007-13 Chevrolet Silverado 1500/GMC Sierra suspension system (Part No. RS6583B) increases ground clearance, enhances off-road versatility and allows up to 35-in. tires.

The 2013 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 showcased in the Rancho SEMA booth utilizes Rancho RS5000 shock absorbers to replace the OE coil-overs. The kit also is compatible with Rancho RS9000XL performance shock absorbers as well as stock tire/wheel packages.

The Rancho Silverado/Sierra 4WD suspension system features a variety of exclusive design and construction elements to ensure maximum performance and unmatched durability, including Rancho’s legendary one-piece sub-frame. The sub-frame provides a precision-matched fit and superior strength through its laser-cut, ¼-in. thick steel construction. To provide extra strength during off-road use, Rancho includes high-clearance aft braces to maximize ground clearance.

Plus, every Rancho Silverado/Sierra system maintains OE-quality steering precision by maintaining the factory’s rack and pinion location, making it faster and easier to install. As with any Rancho system, the latest Silverado/Sierra includes detailed, illustrated instructions. No drivetrain or exhaust modifications are necessary.

Preserving original equipment geometry for minimal bump steer, the new system also includes extended cast steering knuckles. Another key feature are front differential drop brackets that correct pinion angle and minimize driveline vibration.

Each new suspension includes new, extended-length, DOT-certified front brake lines.

Rancho RS5000 shocks are covered by the Rancho “Ride Guarantee,” an exclusive offer that allows enthusiasts to try the product for 90 days. If within the first 90 days of ownership the consumer is unhappy for any reason, the consumer can return the products for a full refund of the product’s purchase price. The shocks and suspension system are backed by the Rancho brand’s limited lifetime warranty. Please visit www.GoRancho.com for additional details and restrictions.
