Street Map of the Location
The plant is located just NorthEast of the 91/710 interchange and beware, the off ramps are a little tricky to figure out.
If you're going North on the 710, you'll get off at Artesia, go East and then North on Atlantic.
If you're going South on the 710, you'll take the transition ramp to the 91 East and then take the Atlantic ramp off the transition.
If you're going East on the 91, you'll take the transition ramp to the 710 North and the Atlantic ramp off the transition.
If you're going West on the 91, you'll take the Atlantic off ramp.
If you're late to the meeting, we'll know you got lost. Check the map here for more detail:

The Rancho Suspension Plant employs about 60 personnel.
They manufacture and ship about 750 to 900 suspension units a month. They are also a distribution point for Rancho shocks and Monroe products (manufactured in the Midwest
2005 Rancho Suspension Web Page Note: They also make a leveling kit for the SuperDuty.
Rancho is not set up to sell directly from the plant, but there is a possibility they may be able to set up a discount sale to SoCAPS members through one of their distributors...we're working on this!! (It's a policy thing for Rancho and it may or may not be possible...the plant people are going to look into it.)
