Icon4 need suspension help with rancho shocks.

Just installed my new set of rancho 9000 on my truck. Rear went on no problem but the fronts almost seemed short. When I went out for a test drive front shocks seemed to be over extending going over a bump. Anybody run into this issue or something similar.

Did a leveling kit on the front. But my torsion bolts are at stock height. Just a different torsion key.

Might have lost the gas pressure inside during installation. I would try and bring them back. Is it both sides?

Yup. Both sides. Heard people run the 9000 on rear and the 5000 2" longer on front. Not sure if that's what I need to do or not.
